Refutting Crucifixion (Part 1)
Did god failed to compete with his own words?
In my previous article I prove that Jesus wasn’t crucified according to Gospel of Barnabas . However, some of my Christian brothers disagree with me chraging the Gospel of Barnabas as fake and not of quality to believe. So I am willing to prove to from Bible that Jesus cann’t be crucified.

I am only mentioning this so that readers can directly look into it as it is a trustful site for reading Bible. However, other sites can also be used.
The following Biblical verses that further refute the crucifixion and resurrection lies:
Jesus will be lifted and saved:
For the Scriptures say, ‘He will order his angels to protect and guard you. And they will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.’ Jesus responded, “The Scriptures ALSO SAY, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.’
Luke 4:11 Ps 91:11-12.
Luke 4:12 Deut 6:16.
Above we see Jesus confirmed the previous scripture about him and you can see the footnotes relating to it.
Now let us look Matthew 4:5-7
Then the devil took him to the holy city, Jerusalem, to the highest point of the Temple, and said, “If you are the Son of God, jump off! For the Scriptures say, ‘He will order his angels to protect you. And they will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.’”
Jesus responded, “The Scriptures ALSO SAY, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.’”
There are few points to notice in these verses:
1- Notice how satan referred to Psalm 91 regarding the protection of Jesus. (See footnotes)
2- Notice how Jesus confirmed that Psalm 91 was indeed speaking about him by saying “the Scriptures also say…” (Luke 4:12 and Matthew 4:7).
3- As we will see in the sections below, Psalm 91 is not just concerned with preventing Christ or the Messiah from striking his feet against the ground. This is the least point the chapter is concerned with.
Now Let us see Psalm 91 what it says about Jesus:
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling— even the LORD, who is my refuge-
10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning youto guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
(If Jesus died on the cross and got buried, then his feet would’ve struck the ground and the stones on it from bringing him down, throwing him on the floor and burying him).
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
So there is no question. The scripture clearly states that Jesus will be saved and will see the punishment of wicked from his own eyes. Also, the New Testament, again, confirms that Psalm 91 is referring to Jesus Christ.
1- God Almighty will hear his cries (Psalm 91:15) and will save him (Psalm 91:3).
2- God Almighty will cover him with His Protection (Psalm 91:4).
3- Christ will then not have any fear in him (Psalm 91:5).
4- Christ will then observe with his own eyes the punishment of the crucified ones (Psalm 91:8)
5– No harm (this includes crucifixion!) or disaster will even come near Christ (Psalm 91:10). This even contradicts him getting beaten up before crucifixion
6- God Almighty will send down the Angels to protect him and lift him (Psalm 91:11-12, 14). Not even his foot will strike the ground from his enemies pushing, grappling and punishment.
7- Christ’s call will be heard, and he will be delivered and honored (Psalm 91:15). No way would these verses be valid if Christ got crucified.
8- His life will be prolonged (extended) and he will live to even see his offspring (Isaiah 53:10 and Psalm 91:16 which by the way contradict Jesus never got married and had children.)
So if Jesus was killed, then did god failed to protect him from his enemies as prophesied in scriptures?
And think hard on this
When Abraham was told by God to sacrifice his son, his son did not object or question him, if Jesus was sent to be sacrificed for our sins, why would he question God?
(Matthew 27:46): “.. . My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
Don’t Ignore OT
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.”
2 Timothy 3:16
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,”
Allah Knows Best.
