Question 179: What is the story of Jesus℗? And how was another made to resemble him to them? The Almighty said: ﴾And their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Christ, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of God.” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who disagree upon it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain﴿. Quran Chapter “The Women” 4:157.
Answer: In the name of God, the Abundantly Merciful, the Intensely Merciful.
Praise be to God, Lord of the worlds, and may the prayers and blessings of God be upon Muhammad and his progeny, the Imams and the Mahdis.
Jesus℗ in the night in which he was raised arranged to meet his disciples, so they were all present with him except for Judas who guided the Jews’ clerics to Jesus℗, for he went to the highest cleric of the Jews and traded Jesus℗ in to him.
And it was after midnight that the disciples slept and Jesus℗ remained so God raised him and sent down his look-alike who was crucified and killed, so he was an armor and a sacrifice to him, and this look-alike is from the successors from the progeny of Muhammad℗; he was crucified and killed and he tolerated the torment for the cause of Imam al-Mahdi, peace be upon him.
And Jesus℗ was not crucified or killed; rather, he was raised so God saved him from the hands of the Jews and their misguided and misguiding clerics (may God curse them). The Almighty said, ﴾and their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Christ, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of God.” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them.﴿
In the interpretation of Ali bin Ibrahim, Abu Jafar℗ said, ﴾“Jesus℗ called his companions to meet him the night God raised him to Him, so they gathered in the evening, and they were twelve men; and he made them enter a house and then appeared to them from a spring at the corner of the house, shaking the water off his head. So he said, “God is raising me to him in this hour and he is purifying me from the Jews. So upon which one of you will my resemblance be cast so he will be killed and crucified and join me in my rank?” So a young man from among them said, “I, O Spirit of God.” He said, “Then it shall be you.” The Jews then came searching for Jesus℗ … and they took the young man upon whom the resemblance of Jesus℗ was cast, and he was killed and crucified.”﴿. [Tafsir al-Qummi (The interpretation of al-Qummi) Vol. 1 page 103.]
So Imam al-Baqir℗ is saying “twelve men had gathered,” whereas the ones who came from the disciples were eleven, as Judas did not come, he rather went to the clerics of the Jews to turn in Jesus℗, and this is from the frequently mentioned matters that are not denied, so the twelfth one who came, or say was sent down from the sky, is the successor from the progeny of Muhammad℗ who was crucified and killed after he was made similar to the image of Jesus, peace be upon him.
And the last words of this vicegerent were: “Eliah Eliah [Elijah Elijah] why did you leave me”. And in Gospel of Matthew: “Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, ‘Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?’ that is, ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ And some of the bystanders, hearing it, said, ‘This man is calling Elijah’…But the others said, ‘Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him’. And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split…” [Gospel of Matthew ch.27] Done.
And the truth is that the translation of the words that he said is as follows: “Ya Ali Ya Ali lemada anzalthani (Ya Ali Ya Ali why have you made me descend)”. And the Christians translate it as such “Elahi Elahi [my God my God] why did you leave me”, as was shown in the previous text from the Bible. And the descent, or the throw in Earth, from the sky is close to the act of leaving.
And this vicegerent did not say these words out of ignorance about the reason of the descent, nor did he say them as an objection at the command of Allah swt. But these words are a question with a hidden answer, he directed [the question] to the people: meaning “understand and know why I descended and why I was crucified and why I was killed, so that you don’t fail the test another time, if the same question is asked again, so if you saw the Romans (or the likes of them) conquering the Earth, and the scholars of the Jews (or the likes of them) flattering them, then I will be in that Earth, for this is the Sunnah of Allah which is repeated, so learn your lesson, and give me victory if I come, and do not participate again in my crucifixion and my murder.
He wanted to say in the answer of the evident question for every sane person who is pure by nature: I was crucified and I endured the torture and the insults of the scholars of the Jews, and I was killed for the minor resurrection, the resurrection of Imam Al Mahdi (PBUH), and for the state of the truth and for the divine justice on Earth.
And when the scholars of the Jews and the Roman ruler asked this vicegerent: are you the king of the Jews? He would answer: “you said”, or “they say”, or “you say”, and he did not say yes; a strange answer to those who are ignorant of the truth, but now [the answer] has become clear. For he did not say yes, because he was not the king of the Jews, for Jesus (PBUH) whom Allah ascended was, but he [the vicegerent] was the look alike who descended to be crucified and killed instead of Jesus (PBUH)
And this is the text of his answer -after he was arrested- from the Bible:
(And the high priest answered and said to him, “I adjure you by the living God, tell us if you are the Christ”, Jesus answered “You have said so”…) [Gospel of Matthew ch.26],
(… So Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, ‘Are you the King of the Jews?’ Jesus said, ‘You have said so…’) [Gospel of Matthew ch.27],
(… And Pilate asked him, ‘Are you the King of the Jews?’ And he answered him, ‘You have said so…’) [Gospel of Mark ch..15] ,
(…So they all said, ‘Are you Christ?’ So he said to them, ‘You say that I am…’) [Gospel of Luke ch.22],
(…33 So Pilate entered his headquarters again and called Jesus and said to him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” 34 Jesus answered, “Do you say this of your own accord, or did others say it to you about me?” 35 Pilate answered, “Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered you over to me. What have you done?” 36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But now my kingdom is not from here.” 37 Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world to bear witness to the truth…) [Gospel of John ch.18]
And in this latter text the vicegerent clarified that he is not from the people of the Earth in that age, but that he descended on it to accomplish a mission, which is sacrificing himself for Jesus (PBUH), for you see this vicegerent say (My kingdom is not of this world), (But now my kingdom is not from here), (and for this purpose I have come into the world to bear witness to the truth…).
The Prophet of Allah (PBUH & His House Hold) said “Jesus the son of Mary (PBUH) will descend at the break of day between “mihrodayn”[two colored clouds], and they are two yellow dresses from saffron, his body is white, his head is red, his hair split in half, as if his head is pouring oil/fat, in his hand is a spear, he will break the crucifix, kill the pig, destroy the Dajjal, collect the money of Al-Qa’im and the People of the Cave will walk behind him, and he is the right vizier [most trusted helper] of Al-Qa’im, his chamberlain and his deputy, and he will spread security in the west and the east with the blessing and dignity of the Hujjat (proof of Allah) son of Al-Hassan (PBUH)” [Ghayat Al Maram by Al Sayyed Hashem Al Bahrani part 7 p.93]
The Commander of the Faithful, Ali Bin Abi Talib (PBUH) said “and the home of the ruler/king shall return to Al Zawra’a, and the matters shall be handled through the Shura, where whoever dominates over a matter shall do it. It is at that point that As-Sufyani will appear and travel the land for nine months during which he will inflict upon them the worst of torment. Woe unto Egypt, woe unto Az-Zawraa’, woe unto Kufa and woe unto Wasit, for it is as if I am looking at Wasit and I see no survivor there with any news. It is at that point that As-Sufyani will appear, food will become scarce, people sterile, rain rare, lands infertile, and not a drop of water will come down from the sky. Then, Al-Mahdi, the rightly guided and guiding Imam, will reappear and take the standard from Jesus the son of Mary” [Al Malahim wa Al Fitan by Al Sayyed ibn Tawoos Al Hosni p.134].
And there are a lot of Hadiths that prove that Jesus (PBUH) was not crucified nor was he killed, but the one who was crucified and killed was the look alike of Jesus (PBUH).
Abi Abdillah (PBUH) said:” Jesus the son of Mary (PBUH) ascended [to heaven] clad in garments of wool spun by Mary, woven by Mary, and sewn by Mary. When he was brought up to heaven it was called: ‘O Jesus! Cast off from yourself the finery of the world” [Bihar Al Anwar part 14 p.338]
And Al-Ridha (PBUH) said:” None of the matters of any of the prophets of Allah or of any of His proofs was made to (look like something else than what it is) to the people except the matter of Jesus son of Mary, for he was raised from the earth alive and his soul was taken between heaven and earth, then he was raised to heaven and his soul was returned to him, and that in His saying: “And when Allah said: O Jesus, I am going to take you ( causing you to die) and cause you to ascend unto Me” [Al Imran verse 55] [Qisas Al Anbiyaa’ by Al Gaza’ery p.474, from Oyoon AL Akhbar].
And the Prophet (PBUH & His HouseHold): “Jesus (PBUH) did not die and verily he shall return to you before the day of resurrection” [Bihar Al Anwar part 14 p. 344]
And pay attention that Jesus is a sent prophet and he had asked from Allah swt to be healed and to push the crucifixion and the torture and the killing away from him, and Allah swt does not return back a du’a of a sent prophet, so Allah swt answered his du’a and raised him, and sent down the vicegerent who was crucified and killed instead of him.
And in the bible there are many texts which include the supplication of Jesus (PBUH) to be saved from the crucifixion and the murder:
(…So he went a little farther and he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me…) [Gospel of Matthew ch.26]
(…And going a little farther, he fell on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me…) [Gospel of Mark ch.14]
(…And he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed, saying, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me…) [Gospel of Luke ch.22]
And in the Torah/ Book of Isaiah, and in the Bible Acts of the Apostles/Chapter 8 this text (…Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter, and like a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he opens not his mouth…)
And all the sent prophets and vicegerents talked, none of them went silently to the slaughter, but they were sent to talk and reproach/reprove and preach to the people, and Jesus (PBUH) in particular, how many times did he reprove/reproach the scholars and the people, and how many times did he preach to them, so it is unbelievable that he went to the slaughter silently.
But this who went to the slaughter silently is the vicegerent: (the look alike of Jesus) who was crucified and killed without speaking, and without asking from Allah that He pushes away from him the torture or the crucifixion or the killing, and without speaking with people, but even when they were pressing and asking him with insistence who are you, he did not answer them except by one word, you said.
And that way he went to the torment and crucifixion and killing, silently and satisfied (accepting) the command of Allah, executor to what descended to him, and that is to be crucified and killed instead of Jesus (PBUH).
And because originally it was not his time to be sent and inform people and speak with them, as such he went like a sheep led to the slaughter, like a silent lamb before its shearer, so he did not open his mouth.
I hope that every believer who wants to know the truth may benefit from this situation, for this human who was sent down to Earth, and was crucified and killed, and nobody knows, he did not ask to be mentioned nor did he ask to be known, he descended silently, and he was crucified silently, and he was killed silently, and ascended to his God silently, like that if you wanted to be then be.

سؤال/ 179: ما هي قصة عيسى ع ؟ وكيف شبه لهم بقوله تعالى: ﴿ وَقَوْلِهِمْ إِنَّا قَتَلْنَا الْمَسِيحَ عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ وَمَا صَلَبُوهُ وَلَكِنْ شُبِّهَ لَهُمْ وَإِنَّ الَّذِينَ اخْتَلَفُوا فِيهِ لَفِي شَكٍّ مِنْهُ مَا لَهُمْ بِهِ مِنْ عِلْمٍ إِلَّا اتِّبَاعَ الظَّنِّ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ يَقِينًا ﴾ (1) ؟
الجواب: بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
والحمد لله رب العالمين, وصلى الله على محمد وآل محمد الأئمة والمهديين
عيسى ع في الليلة التي رفع فيها واعد حوارييه, فحضروا عنده إلا يهوذا الذي دل علماء اليهود على عيسى (ع) فقد ذهب الي المرجع الأعلى لليهود, وقايضه على تسليم عيسى(ع) لهم.
وكان بعد منتصف الليل أن نام الحواريون, وبقي عيسى(ع). فرفعه الله, وأنزل (شبيهه الذي صلب وقتل), فكان درعًا له وفداءً، وهذا الشبيه هو من الأوصياء من آل محمد (ص) , صلب وقتل وتحمل العذاب لأجل قضية الإمام المهدي(ع).
وعيسى(ع) لم يصلب ولم يقتل, بل رفع فنجاه الله من أيدي اليهود وعلمائهم الضالين (لعنهم الله), قال تعالى: ﴿ وَقَوْلِهِمْ إِنَّا قَتَلْنَا الْمَسِيحَ عِيسَى ابْنَ مَرْيَمَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ وَمَا صَلَبُوهُ وَلَكِنْ شُبِّهَ لَهُمْ ﴾.
وفي الرواية في تفسير علي بن إبراهيم عن أبي جعفر(ع), قال: (إن عيسى (ع) وعد أصحابه ليلة رفعه الله إليه فاجتمعوا عند المساء, وهم اثنا عشر رجلا فأدخلهم بيتاً ثم خرج عليهم وهو ينفض رأسه من الماء, فقال إن الله رافعي إليه الساعة ومطهري من اليهود فأيكم يلقى عليه شبحي فيقتل ويصلب ويكون معي في درجتي قال شاب منهم أنا يا روح الله قال فأنت هُو ذا …
ثم قال (ع): إن اليهود جاءت في طلب عيسى(ع) من ليلتهم … وأخذوا الشاب الذي ألقي عليه شبح عيسى(ع) فقتل وصلب )(2) .

المتشابهات:الجزء الرابع/السيد أحمد الحسن عليه السلام…………………117
فالإمام الباقر(ع) يقول : (اجتمع اثنا عشر), بينما الذين جاؤوا من الحواريين هم (أحد عشر), فيهوذا لم يأت, بل ذهب إلي علماء اليهود ليسلِّم عيسى (ع), وهذا من المتواترات التي لا تنكر, فالثاني عشر الذي جاء أو قل الذي نزل من السماء, هو الوصي من آل محمد صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم, الذي صلب وقتل, بعد أن شُبِه بصورة عيسى (ع) .
وكانت آخر كلمات هذا الوصي عند صلبه هي: (إيليا, إيليا لما شبقتني), وفي إنجيل متى: (… صرخ يسوع بصوت عظيم إيلي إيلي لما شبقتني أي إلهي, إلهي لماذا تركتني. فقوم من الواقفين هناك لما سمعوا, قالوا: إنه ينادي إيليا … وأما الباقون فقالوا أترك لنرى هل يأتي إيليا يخلصه. فصرخ يسوع أيضًا بصوت عظيم وأسلم الروح.
وإذا حجاب الهيكل قد انشق إلي أثنين من فوق إلي أسفل. والأرض تزلزلت والصخور تشققت …)(1) أنتهى.
والحقيقة أن ترجمة الكلمات التي قالها هكذا: (يا علي يا علي لماذا أنزلتني), والنصارى يترجمونها (إلهي, إلهي لماذا تركتني) كما تبين لك من النص السابق من الانجيل.
والإنزال أو الإلقاء في الأرض من السماء قريب من الترك .
ولم يقل هذا الوصي هذه الكلمات جهلاً منه بسبب الإنزال, أو اعتراضاً على الله سبحانه وتعالى, بل هي سؤال يستبطن جوابه, وجهه إلي الناس: أي افهموا واعرفوا لماذا نزلتُ ولماذا صلبتُ, ولماذا قُتلتُ, لكي لا تفشلوا في الأمتحان مرة أخرى, إذا اُعيد نفس السؤال, فإذا رأيتم الرومان (أو أشباههم) يحتلون الأرض, وعلماء اليهود (أو أشباههم) يداهنونهم, فسأكون في تلك الأرض فهذه سنة الله التي تتكرر, فخذوا عبرتكم وانصروني إذا جئت ولا تشاركوا مرة أخرى في صلبي وقتلي.
وكان يريد أن يقول في جواب السؤال البيّن لكل عاقل نقي الفطرة: صُلبتُ وتحملتُ العذاب وإهانات علماء اليهود, وقُتلتُ لأجل القيامة الصغرى, قيامة الإمام المهدي(ع), ودولة الحق والعدل الألهي على هذه الأرض.

وهذا الوصي عندما سأله علماء اليهود والحاكم الروماني: هل أنت مَلِك اليهود؟ كان يجيب أنت قلت, أو هم يقولون, ولم يقل نعم, جواب غريب على من يجهل الحقيقة, ولكنه الأن توضح.
فلم يقل: نعم, لأنه ليس هو مَلِك اليهود, بل عيسى (ع)الذي رفعه الله, وهو الشبيه الذي نزل ليُصلب ويُقتل بدلاً عن عيسى (ع).
وهذا نص جوابه – بعد أن أٌلقي عليه القبض – من الإنجيل:
(فأجاب رئيس الكهنة وقال له أستحلفك بالله الحي أن تقول لنا هل أنت المسيح, قال له يسوع: أنت قلت …)(1), (… فوقف يسوع أمام الوالي فسأله الوالي قائلاً أأنت مَلِك اليهود فقال له يسوع: أنت تقول …)(2), (… فسأله بيلاطس أنت ملك اليهود فأجاب وقال له أنت تقول …)(3), (… فقال الجميع أفأنت المسيح فقال لهم أنتم تقولون إني أنا هو …)(4), (…33 ثم دخل بيلاطس أيضاً إلي دار الولاية ودعا يسوع, وقال له أنت ملك اليهود. 34 أجابه يسوع أمن ذاتك هذا أم أخرون قالوا لك عني.35أجابه بيلاطس ألعلي أنا يهودي. أمتك ورؤساء الكهنة أسلموك إلي. ماذا فعلت. 36 أجاب يسوع مملكتي ليست من هذا العالم. لوكانت مملكتي من هذا العالم لكان خدامي يجاهدون لكي لا اُسلّم إلي اليهود. ولكن الآن ليست مملكتي من هنا. 37فقال له بيلاطس أفأنت إذا مَلِك. أجاب يسوع أنت تقول أني ملك. لهذا قد ولدت أنا, ولهذا قد أتيت إلي هذا العالم لأشهد للحق …)(5).
وفي هذا النص الأخير بيّنَ الوصي أنه ليس من أهل الأرض في ذلك الزمان, بل نزل إليها لإنجاز مهمة وهي فداء عيسى (ع), حيث ترى أن هذا الوصي يقول: (مملكتي ليست من هذا العالم), (ولكن الآن ليست مملكتي من هنا), (ولهذا قد أتيت إلي هذا العالم لأشهد للحق).
عن رسول الله (ص): (قال ينزل عيسى ابن مريم (ع) عند انفجار الصبح ما بين مهرودين وهما ثوبان أصفران من الزعفران, أبيض الجسم, اصهب الرأس, أفرق الشعر, كأن رأسه يقطر
