SHIA BELIEFS IN THE BIBLE
Thomas McElwain, from Ohio, U.S.A., had delivered a series of lectures in London covering topics of Imam Hussayn (a.s.),
Tragedy of Karbala, the Injeel and the event of Ghadeer. These lectures were published under the title of “Shia Beliefs in the Bible”.
Following are extracts from his lectures:
Unity of God:
Psalms 86:10 “for you are great, and do wondrous things: You are God alone.”
“Jesus agrees with the Unity of God and says in Mark 12:29 ‘the first of all Commandments is here; O Israel! The Lord our God is One Lord.’”
Justice of God:
Isaiah 45:21 “and there is no other God beside me; a just God, there is none beside me.”
Deuteronomy 32:4 “He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways is judgment: a God of truth and without inquiry, just and right is he.”
Amos 3:7 “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he will reveal his secrets to his servants the prophets.
Psalms 106:24“Indeed they despise the land of Muhammad.”
Exodus 8:5(9) “And Moses said to Pharaoh ‘Glorify Ali: when shall I entreat for you, and for your servants, and for your people, to destroy the frogs from you and your houses, and they may remain in the river only”
The word Ali in the Bible:
The word Ali has been used in the Hebrew Scriptures 226 times. There are some striking parallels between the Biblical Eli and Imam Ali (a.s.) who had two sons who became righteous leaders.
Such texts as Number 11:13 and 14:27 could conceivably translated Ali as well as a form of interjection something on the order of “Ya Ali”
Day of Resurrection:
Revelation 14:6-7 “Fear God and give glory to him, for the hour of his judgment is come.”
Amre Bil Maroof and Nahi anil Munkar:
Psalms 45:7 “Thou lovest righteousness and hates wickedness.”
Hussayn (a.s.) in Bible:
The word Hoosen is found in Exodus 25:7, 28:4, 15, 22, 23, 24, 26, 28, 29, 30; 29:5, 35:9, 27
