A good friend asked me to give some differences between the real Jesus of Christians and fake Jesus of Muslims. I quickly wrote this for him.
There was a question regarding the identity of the person who anointed the feet of Jesus. We look at the scriptures only and find out that there was two different anointings, the first by a sinner and the second definitely by Mary of Bethany, the sister of Martha and Lazarus.

The favourite story of the ancient Ebionites and modern anti-Paulists is that Paul taught something very different to Jesus. This is not true.
Please look at the section'Jesus and Paul' in 'Messages' tab for more information.
New article on the verses in 1 Corinthians 14:34,35 asking women to be silent in the churches. The key is the use of the Greek word 'eta' in verse 36. KJV translates it as 'What?' We can also translate it as 'Nonsense'. Paul actually refutes this idea.
Please look at the section 'Silence' in 'Messages' tab for more information.
Two interesting videos have been shared in the 'Olive&Lamp' tab regarding the supposed mistakes in the genealogy of Jesus. They are very good videos and worth watching.

In 1932, 30-year-old Gladys Aylward arrived in China as a missionary. On her arrival in Yangcheng, Gladys worked with an older missionary, Jeannie Lawson, to found The Inn of the Eight Happinesses. For a time she served as an assistant to the Chinese government as a "foot inspector" by touring the countryside to enforce the new law against foot binding young Chinese girls.
She became a Chinese citizen in 1936 and was a revered figure among the people, taking in orphans and adopting several of them, intervening in a volatile prison riot and advocating prison reform, risking her life many times to help those in need. In 1938, Japanese forces invaded the region, and Gladys led over 100 orphans to safety over the mountains, despite being wounded.
Years later, Gladys led another harrowing journey out of war-torn Yang Chen during the Communist take-over. One morning, fear gripped her and she had no apparent hope of reaching safety. A 13-year old girl tried to comfort her by saying, "Don’t forget what you told us about Moses in the wilderness," to which Gladys replied, "Yes, my dear, but I am not Moses." The young girl replied, "Yes, but God is still God."
Those who trust in Christ have a living Hope who does not disappoint. Today in prayer, praise the Lord that your hope in Him has given you eternal life.
I had written in big letters on the wall behind my chair in my office a quote of George Müller (?) “If God fails me this time, it will be the first time.” It comforted me many times when I was not sure – though I had a very few unanswered prayer of healing of a dear one but every time he protected me, and supplied my needs.
A new Video showing some archaeological proofs for the Bible has been added. It's at the end of the page as we scroll down.
The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound;
