things out of nothing, yet He has taught us that it is so, and we know that He is true. The same
thing applies to the Incarnation. We accept it because God has revealed it.
106. M. If, as you say, Jesus did not foretell the coming of Muhammad, then He was not
omniscient, and therefore not Divine.
C. This begs the question as to Muhammad's apostleship, which we deny, as you know, since we
cannot find any proof of it. It would be more logical to say, since Christ did not foretell the
coming of Muhammad, we have all the less reason to believe the latter's claims to be sent from God.
107. M. If Christ was the Son of God, why did He so constantly call Himself the Son of
C. That He was the Son of God is clear from many passages, of which one is Matt. xxvi. 63,
64, where we find Him answering to that effect on oath. He called Himself also the Son of
Man (not a Son of Man) to make His real Manhood evident, but especially (1) because in
the Syriac language, which was His mother-tongue, the expression, Son of Man, is continually used to
denote Man; (2) because Daniel (vii. 13) uses the title to denote the Messiah, and Jesus
claimed to be that; (3) because of the promise that a man, one of Adam's descendants, the
seed of the woman, should bruise the Serpent's head (Gen. iii. 15), and Christ was the person
referred to. All this we learn from His use of the expression. Thus the Bible teaches that He is
both God and Man.
