Ep.9: Luxenberg finds an Aramaic Qur’an in 7 steps!

We now move to the ground-breaking work of Chistoph Luxenberg’s research on the Qur’an’s
origins, particularly its Syro-Aramaic origins. The material for this video came from Thomas Alexander’s research on Christoph Alexander’s book, entitled “The Syro-Aramaic Reading of the Qur’an”, published in 2007.

You can see a more in-depth description of Luxenberg’s research by Alexander here:

According to Alexander, Luxenberg went to the “dark passages” in the Qur’an to find what they really meant. These are the 25% – 30% of the Qur’an which even today Muslim scholars cannot understand, and are simply considered a mystery.

So, Luxenberg decided to apply a textual analysis to these passages to find what they may have meant originally in another language; namely, Syro-Aramaic, used by the Christians in the earlier centuries to write their religious texts.

In order to apply a true textual analysis of their meanings, he went to each of those passages and applied a 7-step process:

1) Checked with the al Tabari’s 10th century Tafsir (commentary) to find an Arabic meaning for the word.

2) Checked the Lisān al-ʿArab (Tongue of Arabs), which was the earliest Arabic Dictionary, written by Ibn Manzur in 1290 AD.

3) Looked for homonymous (synonymous) roots in Aramaic with different meanings.

4) Tried applying different diacritics, such as those from Aramaic.

5) Checked for an Aramaic root using different diacritics.

6) Re-translated Arabic words into Aramaic with semantics of the Syro-Aramaic words.

7) Tried to find the lost meanings of Arab words using 10th century Syro-Aramaic lexicons.

By the time he had employed these 7 steps, he was able to reproduce All of the dark passages, finding that they had all come from pre-Islamic Christian Syro-Aramaic texts!

Sharia Requires Muslims to HATE Others! - Lloyd De Jongh - Sharia: The Muslim Talmud - Episode 3 [Video]

Sharia Law dictates that it is to be obeyed over all other laws and systems and may be enforced upon people if necessary. According to the orthodox position of the Shariah Law and the Qur'an, Christianity and all other religions are false religions. Islam is the one and only religion that Allah recognizes. Muslims by doctrine are supposed to hate anyone who does not follow Allah. These are the core beliefs of Jihadists and Extremists: to hate those outside your religion, to act against them - sometimes under the guise of friendliness. Watch as al Fadi and Dr. Lloyd Dejongh review the Sharia Law, the Qur'an, and the Hadiths to reveal Islam’s true nature of hatred.Follow Lloyd De Jongh: this channel to get access to perks and early premieres of videos: CIRA International: Facebook: http://www.cirainternational.comSupport Al Fadi:Patreon: CIRA InternationalCIRA's mission and goal is to; create awareness about Islam as a religion and political movement; inform and challenge the Church concerning outreach and evangelism to Muslims, equip the believers with effective outreach tools, and advance the Gospel message among our Muslim neighbors & communities so that the vast majority of Muslims will begin a Gospel conversation with a Christ-follower.CIRA exists to mobilize the Body of Christ across North America, and globally, to more effectively reach Muslims with the Gospel, by discipling and equipping believers, and by empowering church and community leaders to influence the Muslim world for Christ.#AlFadi LloydDeJongh #Islam #Mecca #Shariah #ShariahLaw #sharia


How They LIE About The Quran. [Video]

Why do Muslim teachers feel it's acceptable to spread lies about what the early Muslim community believed about the Quran? Why do we keep hearing that the Quran has been preserved word for word, letter for letter, dot for dot?I show a couple of academics and their thoughts on this claim and how it weighs against the evidence from both Islamic traditions and manuscript evidence.


Can Anyone Live a Blessed Life? [Video]

Moses gives the least motivating pep talk ever in the third movement of Deuteronomy. He outlines God’s covenant and the various blessings and curses associated with it, and then he tells Israel, “You’re going to fail.” Talk about demoralizing! In this episode, join Tim and Jon as they explore the paradox of righteousness accomplished by divine sovereignty and human freedom through the lens of Deuteronomy and the New Testament writers.
