Mohammed bamboozles himself with nonsense

People of the Book, go not beyond the bounds in your religion, and say not as to God but the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only the Messenger of God, and His Word that He committed to Mary, and a Spirit from Him (roohun minhu). So believe in God and His Messengers, and say not, ‘Three.’ Refrain; better is it for you. God is only One God. Glory be to Him — That He should have a son! To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and in the earth; God suffices for a guardian. S. 4:171

What does this nonsense mean? It sounds good but it does not make any sense. Mohammed evidently wanted to use words that he found in Christianity and embed them in to his own invented religion to make it more plausible and attractive to those who already used and believed in these concepts in the context of their own religion.

    “Article says: a Spirit from Him (roohun minhu).”

    Qur’an refers to angelic nature of humans, usually the resurrected ones.
    (i) being lighter than water, Jesus walks on the sea, just like angel who troubled the pool, and angel of wormwood.
    (ii) Emitting the light (Transfiguration). It is like Moses, Elijah, and angels of the tomb whom Disciples worshiped, and Seraphim in the time of Isaiah.
    (iii) Ascending to the cloud. It is like many angels that are described in the book of Revelation.

    The ambiguity of Mohammed’s words leads to speculation of the non-sensical kind and Muslims are forced to go to the bible to try and get some sense out of their book.

    It is the truth to produce a rebuttal directly from its source: taking the bull by its horns.
