A silly argument but still in use by Muslims today is this: If Jesus was God, and God died on the cross, who was running the universe for those three days? I was actually asked this question by a very prominent Islamic scholar a few years back. The scholar: Muzammil Siddiqi, whom I met in a private meeting at a private home in Southern California. We had, shall we say, a nice, intimate chat for over 4 hours, going toe to toe. But I was astounded when he pulled this argument out of his bag of tricks. Learn how to refute this silly critique of the crucifixion and deity of Jesus.
