Debate: Yusuf Ismail vs William Lane Craig [Identifying Jesus: Is he man or both man & God?]
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Most people have probably never heard of Br. Yusuf Ismail, and that’s a shame, he is one of the best present day debaters in the world of theology, especially from the Muslim side. This is one of his greatest debates, although it does date back to 2010, it really demonstrates how weak Christians can become (intellectually) in front of a Muslim whose been educated in the same exact fields, read the same books, used the same arguments. William Lane Craig clearly underestimated Br. Yusuf, if you’re looking for a debate to fancy your interests, learn a thing or two, we certainly recommend this one:
wa Allaahu Alam.
[and God knows best.]
In his final speech before the Q&A, Craig noted Ismail’s red herrings he brought up. To be fair, Craig was the first to throw irrelevancies into the debate. The topic was whether Jesus was God and man or just a man, but in his opening speech, Craig touched on the crucifixion, resurrection and Infancy Gospel of Thomas. These matters were irrelevant to the topic, so Ismail should have called him out on this.
