Muslims: Why isn't Jesus the Son of God, seeing as he said he was?

Jesus said:

"God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son." John 3:16-18

Jesus said, "what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, ‘I am God‘s Son‘?" John 10:36

Likewise John the Baptist testified, "I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God." Joh 1:34

    The bible was changed, yet there are still places in the bible were it says that Jesus was a prophet

    "And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet." - Matthew 14:5 (compare with Matthew 21:26)

    "And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee." - Matthew 21:11

    "But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet." - Matthew 21:46

    "And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:" - Luke 24:19

    "The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet." - John 4:19

    "Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world." - John 6:14

    "Many of the people therefore, when they heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet." - John 7:40

    "Nevertheless I (Jesus) must walk to day, and to morrow, and the [day] following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem." - Luke 13:33

    And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.- Matthew 13:57

    I'm not entirely clear why this is addressed specifically to Muslims. But if you think people should believe whatever anyone says (which is the implication of your question), perhaps I should tell you that I'm a tabby cat with a black tip to my tail. Oh, and my friend says I'm much more handsome than the ginger cat down the road.

    All the statements you quoted are the writings of John and not Jesus himself and John heard from some one else and he heard from some one else.

    Did you ever think about that?

  • Because Mohammed couldn't be the Last prophet if Jesus was the Son of God !

    Because they don't realise that Mohammed was actually quite sinful, and so his testimony is not to be trusted.

    I'm not a Muslim, but what proof do you have that God or Jesus exists? Apart from a book of dubious origin?
