The Arguments of Shabir Ally Examined: Commentary by Jonathan McLatchie and Vladimir Susic (Part 1)



My good friend Vladimir Susic and I are doing a video commentary on my debate from last year with Dr. Shabir Ally on the nature of God (Tawhid vs. Trinity). Here is part 1, in which we review Shabir's opening statement. Enjoy!

Why is it that in the New Testament we don't find any conflict between the Jews and Christians over the latter's belief in the Trinity? Should THIS have not been the biggest bone of contention between the Jews and early Christians, dwarfing all others? Is not the total absence of debate over this issue in the NT absolutely astonishing? Is it credible that the Jews were aware that the early Christians believed in a "blasphemous" triune God and yet and still allowed them to worship in the Temple? Is it credible that these Jews had absolutely nothing to say about their contemporaries (early Jewish Christians) belief in a Trinity? Does it not appear that the Jews were completely unaware that the the early Christians believed in a Trinity? Please enlighten me.

Because there was no Triune God at that time. So simple.

@ Jabbar Musayev

From the entire corpus of Islamic scripture can Muslims cite a single piece of evidence which shows that the Jews were ever aware that Muhammad even once accused them of having corrupted their scriptures?

There is zero evidence that Jesus or his early followers rejected the Torah existing in the first century as corrupt. If Jesus and his followers had “blasphemed” against the Torah they wouldn't have lasted in the Temple five minutes. Neither is there a single recognised New Testament scholar or historian, including Bart Ehrman, who believes that Jesus and his early followers rejected the Torah existing at their time as corrupt.
