Jesus escaped to Egypt and settled in it for 10 years!!
Let us look at the following verses:
The Escape to Egypt
13 After the wise men were gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up! Flee to Egypt with the child and his mother,” the angel said. “Stay there until I tell you to return, because Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”
14 That night Joseph left for Egypt with the child and Mary, his mother,
15 and they stayed there until Herod’s death. This fulfilled what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: “I called my Son out of Egypt.”
|I called my son out of Egypt? The Bible commentators cross-referenced Matthew 2:15 with Hosea 11:1. Here is what the latter verse says:Hosea 11
1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him, and I called my son out of Egypt.
2 But the more I called to him, the farther he moved from me, offering sacrifices to the images of Baal and burning incense to idols.So was Jesus making sacrifices to the images of Baal and worshiping idols while he was in Egypt?
The reference to Hosea 11:1 is a desperate lie by them, and Matthew 2:15 makes a false claim about the Prophet predicting that GOD Almighty will call Jesus out of Egypt.
16 Herod was furious when he realized that the wise men had outwitted him. He sent soldiers to kill all the boys in and around Bethlehem who were two years old and under, based on the wise men’s report of the star’s first appearance.
17 Herod’s brutal action fulfilled what God had spoken through the prophet Jeremiah:
18 “A cry was heard in Ramah—weeping and great mourning. Rachel weeps for her children, refusing to be comforted, for they are dead.”
The Return to Nazareth
19 When Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt.
20 “Get up!” the angel said. “Take the child and his mother back to the land of Israel, because those who were trying to kill the child are dead.”
21 So Joseph got up and returned to the land of Israel with Jesus and his mother.
22 But when he learned that the new ruler of Judea was Herod’s son Archelaus, he was afraid to go there. Then, after being warned in a dream, he left for the region of Galilee.
23 So the family went and lived in a town called Nazareth. This fulfilled what the prophets had said: “He will be called a Nazarene.”
He will be called a Nazarene? The Bible commentators did not even provide a single cross reference to this claim! It can not be found anywhere in the entire Bible, except in this false verse of Matthew 2:23.
To those who believe that Jesus is the Creator of the Universe, I’d like to ask you the following questions about Jesus escaping to Egypt for his life form king Herod:
1- How could GOD Almighty escape for His life from a creation of His? And run again to Nazareth when He returned from Egypt?
2- If Jesus is GOD Almighty Himself, then how could He have allowed Himself to go to Egypt when He bitterly hated it and despised it throughout the Old Testament??
- – We’ve already seen the false promises and bogus prophecies that the verses above declared: (1) All of the Jews in Egypt will perish; (2) Egypt will never exalt itself above other nations ever again.– Also, all of the Jews were forbidden to ever again enter Egypt. This law was never abrogated in the Old Testament, and even Jesus never said that it is no longer a valid one. Jesus never even addressed it. It is like if Jesus and his family never even knew about it. And what about Jesus’ mother and Joseph? Weren’t they also Jews? Weren’t they supposed to be forbidden from entering Egypt?– And again, the Jews in Egypt were to be perished by GOD Almighty by the sword. This never happened.
– Egypt was declared to never be able to exalt itself above other nations again. Jesus’ migration to it only slams this up against the wall. And if Jesus is Jehovah Almighty, then He obviously have smashed His own Promise, because Him coming to Egypt only gives it more honor and exaltation!
– All of the Egyptians, Christians and Muslims, use the Jesus-migrated-to-Egypt point, among many other points, to further their country’s spiritual status. I personally heard it many times.
GOD Almighty breaking His Oaths that He took in His Holy Name, Declarations and Promises?
You might still say: “Yes, but all of this was removed by Jesus’ coming into the world.” When you say this, then you in essence are saying that GOD Almighty broke His Promises, Declarations, and Oaths that He Swore in His Holy Name! And again, no where in the Old and New Testaments were these promises abrogated. So your statement doesn’t hold water even in the Bible.
Allah Almighty Said in the Glorious Quran:
“Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say: “This is from God,” to traffic with it for miserable price!- Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby. (The Noble Quran, 2:79)“
