Is Jesus God Because Satan Called Him “The Holy One Of God”?

There are Christians who tend to use the following verse to try and prove Jesus’ divinity.

Mark 1:24

24″What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”


Christians tend to argue that since Satan called Jesus “The Holy One of God” that means Satan knew Jesus was divine. That is why he called him that. They argue that God in the Old Testament is called Holy One (e.g.. 2Kings 19:22) so that means Jesus is God.

This is a very lame argument on the Christian’s part. First of all, Mark 1:24 says that the devil called Jesus “The Holy One of GOD”. So how can Jesus be God of God? Translators tend to trick the readers by putting “Holy One” in capital letters.

Holy one means a “saint” It could also be referring to a  messenger. For example, look at


Daniel 4:23

23 “You, O king, saw a messenger, a holy one, coming down from heaven and saying, ‘Cut down the tree and destroy it, but leave the stump, bound with iron and bronze, in the grass of the field, while its roots remain in the ground. Let him be drenched with the dew of heaven; let him live like the wild animals, until seven times pass by for him.’


So when Satan called Jesus “The Holy One of God”, it most likely means that he just called Jesus a messenger of God. As a Muslim I completely agree with this statement.

Mark 1:23 does not prove Jesus’ divinity, it actually goes against it and proves that Jesus is, was and never will be God!


And Allah knows best..
