Using the Quran to Explain the Incarnation of Jesus to Muslims
Many Muslims ask their Christian friends questions like, “If Jesus is God, how can he die?” or “If Jesus is God, how can he be born?” Some Muslims (such as Yusha Evans) go so far as to suggest that the Christian view of the Incarnation is absurd or illogical. But if the Christian view is illogical, so is Islam, because Islam teaches something similar about the Qur’an. According to Islamic theology, the Qur’an has two natures: an eternal nature and a physical nature. Allah’s eternal Word (which has no beginning and no end) enters creation as a physical book (which has a beginning and an end). Hence, if Muslims want us to take their objections to the Incarnation seriously, they have to reject Islam!
