Isa عليه السلام had A Teacher?

The allegation of the anti Ahmadi Muslims is against Ahmadas for claiming Isaas had a teacher who taught him the Old Testament. Firstly this statement is taken out of context completely. In this statement Ahmadas is describing how Allah revealed to Muhammadsaw to read and this was different than all other Prophets. In reality, when we look at the bible, in contrary to the Qur’an it only tells us of Isaas being taught the old testament. As Ahmadi Muslims we also believe that Allah taught Isaas the New and Old testament as the Qur’an says but Ahmadas is comparing it to the way Allah taught the Prophetsaw. His statement is being used as an argument to support the truth of the Seal of the Prophetssaw. In fact the Bible itself in Luke has a heading named the Boy Jesus as the Temple. It is stated:


Every year Jesus’ parents went to Jerusalem for the Festival of the Passover. When he was twelve years old, they went up to the festival, according to the custom. After the festival was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it.  Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends.  When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him. After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.  Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. (Luke Chapter 2, Verses 41-47)


In reality, this is not an allegation rather the anti Ahmadis misquote Ahmadasand have not read the Bible. Furthermore, Ahmadas is taling about Zahiri Ilm which is basically the knowledge which is evident or can be seen. He is showing that Allah taught the Holy Prophetsaw how to read by quoting the very first verse revealed which itself which included the word “Iqra”. This was much different in comparison to the other prophets which shows how high the status of the Holy Prophet Muhammadsaw really is.
