My Muslim friend sent me this video:
youtube.com/watch?v=QGzS9sfC8P0&feature=youtu.be (it’s only 7 minutes btw)
Anyway, basically the preacher is trying to explain that Our Lord was not crucified and did not die because when Jesus says-
“But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Matthew 12:38-45
–the preacher goes onto explain that the miracle of the story about Jonah was the fact that he did not die when he fell into the sea, and that when he was trapped inside the fish, he was still alive - therefore making up the miracle. He says that Jesus was not crucified because he would be lying if he died and there would be no miracle (crazy thing to say when there was the resurrection! )
However, if somebody could help me answer my Muslim friend in a way that he could understand that would be great because I really do not know how to explain!
Thank you and happy new year!
