Were the New Testament authors Liars? Answering Dr Shuaib Sayyed by Rudolph P. Boshoff

I have looked at Dr. Shuaib Sayyed's presentation “Is the Bible God’s Word?” in four parts here: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 It is important to state the objection of Dr. Sayyed: All these authors lied because there is no direct reference to the actual words they are saying. In a WhatsApp message Dr. Sayyed mentions: “Take another example John 20:9 'For as yet they knew not the Scriptures, that he must rise [...]

The Fading Isa of the Quran by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

(15-minute read).  There are 36 references to Jesus in the Quran, compared with 69 for Abraham and 136 for Moses. The references to Jesus can be grouped under six main headings: Christ’s Birth; Christ’s Mission; Christ’s Miracles; Christ’s identity; Christ’s Prophethood; Christ’s future predictions. Because we are pressed for time, we will look at: Christ’s Virgin Birth. Christ’s exclusive sinlessness and then; Christ’s titles: Messiah/ Son of God/ Word of God. I have left the Prophethood [...]

Evaluation of Dr Sayyed’s presentation, “Is the Bible God’s Word?” (Part 4) by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

(5minute read). In the last few weeks, I have tried to show that Dr. Sayyed's objections to the authenticity of the Bible is not sincere and lacks any objectivity. Dr. Sayyed is merely trying to embarrass and twist the Biblical stories to fit his motives. He picks up the story of David at his old age and writes: "David sleeping with a girl to warm him (1 Kings 1:1-4).Is this doctrine? It cannot be a [...]

Evaluation of Dr Sayyed’s presentation, “Is the Bible God’s Word?” (Part 3) by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

5 minute read: In my previous article, I have shown that the central didactic of Dr. Sayyed is seemingly lacking in both fairness and objective scholarship. Dr. Sayyed seems to ask questions around inspiration and infallibility of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures that seem to conflict with his own presumed worldview. Here is part 3 looking at his suggested claims: Dr. Sayyed mentions, "Scribes changed as they pleased." He then quotes Dr. Bruce Metzger, quoting Church Father [...]

Evaluation of Dr Sayyed’s presentation, “Is the Bible God’s Word?” (Part 2) by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

5 Minute read: In my previous article, I have shown that the central didactic of Dr. Sayyed is seemingly lacking in both fairness and objective scholarship. Dr. Sayyed seems to ask questions around the inspiration and infallibility of the Judeo-Christian Scriptures that seem to be in conflict with his own presumed worldview. [1] Here is part 2 looking at his suggested claims:  Who is making the claim that the Bible is God’s Word? Or from [...]

Evaluation of Dr Sayyed’s presentation, “Is the Bible God’s Word?” (Part 1) by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

(10-minute read) In my recent discussion with Dr. Sayyed, his presentation was firmly based on two central biases. First, that God, in fact, cannot preserve His own revelation, and second, that the Prophets of the Old Testament and New Testament (Isaiah, David, Jesus) were not truthful concerning God’s decrees. In this article, I will give feedback on his presentation. I will mirror Dr Sayyed’s claims and apply the same to the central context of the [...]

Jesus, God, and the Qur’an, on the Christian Scriptures by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff

5 Minute read: In my recent discussion with Dr. Sayyed on the question, ‘Is the Bible God’s Word’ my central claim was that ultimately we can only answer that question once we have endeavored to look at the claims of Jesus as a true Prophet. My very central claim against Dr. Sayyed’s presentation, in fact, was threefold and I will briefly outline my argument in this article. First, we need to ask the question concerning [...]

A Critique of “Jesus & the Injeel” by John Fontain by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

John Fontain has written a little booklet scrutinizing various themes making large claims concerning the Bible, Jesus and the Christian understanding of the Gospel. I do not endeavor in this evaluation to look at everything Mr. Fontain mentioned and as far possible tried to keep it short and precise, assessing his claims from a Biblical Christian and Scholarly understanding. About the cover: Just an interesting observation about the cover of this little booklet. The quality [...]
