"ANOTHER PARACLETE" was originally
"ANOTHER INDEPENDENT SALVIFIC FIGURE"
LIKE JESUS TO COME AFTER JESUS
later on Paraclete was confused with
which was already present when
Jesus was Baptized by John the Baptist...
What is Anchor Bible?
Jesus said: "Nevertheless
I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I
do not go away, the Paraclete (the Advocate) will not come to you; but
if I go, I will send him to
you. And when he
comes, he will
prove the world wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment." John
Please read the following exhaustive study
done by the biblical scholars of international and interfaith scope to
know the real truth about this misunderstood personality of "The Paraclete"
who was to come after Jesus. Was this Paraclete once regarded as an independent
salvific male figure like Jesus and later confused with the Holy Spirit?
The following pages have been scanned from the Anchor Bible Vol. 29A.
Please read my personal comments at the end.
sincere thanks are due to the publishers/editors of the Anchor Bible. The
volumes of this Anchor Bible are found in the major public libraries
MY COMMENTS TO THE LAST SENTENCE
1. The evangelical concept for the "second
coming of Jesus", which is being awaited
by the followers of Jesus for over the last two millennium, need not be
confused with the Johannine picture for the coming of "another
paraclete" which was subject to the departure
of Jesus and him requesting the Father.
2. If the followers of Jesus were to believe
that Jesus - a Paraclete, "is present within
all believers " then the visualized Johannine
picture of Father sending "another paraclete"
to guide the mankind into all truth, is made redundant.
3. The verses from John's gospel scrutinized
in the APPENDIX V above demonstrate the fact that Jesus had himself foretold
his disciples the coming of "another paraclete"("he"),
will guide them along the path of all truth and that paraclete "he"
take what belonged to him (Jesus)
and declare to them.
4. The exhaustive study for the coming
of "another paraclete" or "another male
salvific figure like Jesus" is valid and well
founded because this male individual "he"
has already been sent down by the Heavenly Father of Jesus.
5. Furthermore, this "second
paraclete" has glorified his predecessor "the
first paraclete" (Jesus) and "he" did "speak"
(recite) whatever that he "heard"
as the revelations sent to him through the arch angel of God. He added
of his own" to those Revealed Verses.
(see John xvi 14-13).
6. The history of religions and faiths
have recorded none other beside Muhammad -
the prophet of Islam, as an accredited emissary
and envoy of God that has
uncompromisingly born witness to the birth of Jesus through Virgin Mary,
attested the Miracles performed by Jesus with the leave of his Father and
has Declared Jesus as a "Messiah" and the "Righteous Prophet".
7. Prophet Muhammad did prove the world of
his era to be "wrong about sin, justice, and judgment" as foretold by Jesus
in John xvi 8-11. He did bring all the mankind out of the "age of ignorance"
into an "age of enlightenment" through these Revealed Message
Qur'an - the Koran). This book is being
recited in Arabic and the interpretations (translations) studied in several
languages throughout the world. To read English or French translation
of the Qur'an please click:
8. Finally, several millenniums before Christ
Jesus spoke for the coming of "another paraclete", the
making of ISLAM as a Great Nation was already in GOD'S MASTER PLAN and
foretold in the Holy Bible. God the Almighty had declared His Master Plan
to His prophets Abraham, Moses, Solomon, Isaiah and Habakkuk. Here are
few verses from the Old and New Testaments. Genesis
17: 20; 21: 13-17-18; Deuteronomy 18: 15-18 and
in particular 33:2; Songs of Solomon 5: 10 to 16; Isaiah
42: 9 to 17 and Habakkuk 3: 3. John 14: 16/26; 15: 26; 16: 7 to 15;
1 John 2: 1 and
1 John 4: 6.
