I am in search of some information pertaining to the Kaaba and its construction. Also, I would like to know why there seems to be no mention of Mecca or the Kaaba in the Bible. If someone can shed some light on this for me I would appreciate it..

In response to the question : who is father?

The father in this context is God , as indicated elsewhere, for example in the same gospel, “For as the father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the son gives life to whom he wishes” (John 5:21 , my translation ) .

do you want to worship to the person who pray to his God instead of worship the God who heard the person prayer?

To M. I. Ismail:

The fact that Jesus both prays to the father and claims to be the father has to do with the theory of the trinity, which I can try to explain if you like, but I warn you, I am not sure that the theory makes sense.

This is a very good point . I do not understand the trinity concept myself . Please feel free to elaborate .

To M. I Ismail and mellowone: The trinity doctrine is that the one god is three persons. Everything therefore depends on what ‘persons’ means here. Let me quote David T Williams: “What makes a person is relationship, just as what makes the Son to be fully divine is his relationship to the two other Persons.” god as such is dependent only on himself, The father and the Son are as such only in a relationship (paternal or filial) with each other. I shall suggest (though I do not know whether Christians would agree with me) that God is father in his relationship to us as creator; he is Son in his relationship to us as redeemer; he is Holy Spirit in his relationship to us as inspirer or strengthener. For further information, u must ask Christians: u might try

in Genesis 31v.13 "I am the God of Beth-EL (which means house of the Lord)where thou anointedst the pillar" confirming whaat was mentioned before also in Gen28v.9and17 says it is the gateway to heaven.
Muslim scholars take these verses to reference the kaba. And Mecca is also called Becca (Quran 3v.96 "verily the first house (for worship)for mankind was that in Bakka.cross reference that with something i read Psalms 84v.6 mentioned the valley of Bacca also. It is the beginning of the true worship of the One and only All Mighty Creator it is not idol worship.but the uniting point where Abraham taught us all to worship One God. Remember Jesus said before Abraham was (a prophet) now I am????? Abraham was not a Jew or a Christian but he submitted to God he was Muslim.
