Why Christians Choose the Bible, Not the Quran

Kitab-13Have you ever tried to compare the Quran and the Bible? You will discover there is a big difference between the two books. The Bible is full of prophecies, whereas the Quran is not.  What God tells us through His Prophets about things to come is called "prophecy."

Testing the Quran and the Bible through Prophecy

The only way you can know a book is from God is if the prophecies in the book come true. True prophecies are very specific. Some Muslims claim “And when books spread abroad” (Qs 81:11) is a prophecy. Books were spread abroad at the time of Muhammad. But this is not a prophecy. It is too general. Therefore, we can’t test the Qur’an to see if it is really from God based on a “prophecy” like that.

On the other hand, God’s prophet Micah prophesied 500 years before the coming of Isa Al-Masih that He would be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:1-2). This is a true prophecy. It gives a specific location of where, in the future, something would take place.

The Bible gives us many more prophecies as well. It records God’s words given through many of His prophets on things to come. These prophecies can be tested. They have been tested, and found to be true. This is why Christians believe the only Book from God is the Bible.

The Quran Cannot Be Testedbigstock-Quran-Page-36965635

If the Quran had fulfilled prophecies in it, like God’s Book, there would be a reason to believe it. But it does not. We can’t test the Quran. No, you just have to believe that Muhammad received it from the angel Gabriel. You have to believe the words of one man are more accurate than the words of many prophets.

You keep using the word "test." I do not think it means what you think it means. You're using the Bible to prove that the Bible is right.

I quote: "We cannot test the Quran." No, you just have to believe that Muhammad received the words from the angel Gabriel.

Well, we cannot test the Bible. You just have to believe that the authors of the Injil based their stories on the life of a real man. The earliest extant fragment of the New Testament is the Rylands Library Papyrus P52, a piece of the Gospel of John dated to the first half of the 2nd century. That's not contemporary.

Dear Michael,

Thank you for your comment! Your views are respected and appreciated by us. Perhaps the article was unclear or confusing to you.

The purpose of the article was not to establish the dates of manuscripts, but to show the fulfillment of prophecy in the Bible. The existence of Jesus Christ is not in question.

The historical evidence for Christ is overwhelming. Other than a very rare historian who has placed his emotions above his intellect, Christ as a real historical figure is accepted the world around - even by atheist scholars.

Please read this article for more information about how we know the Bible is true: http://www.isaandislam.com/The-Bible/should-muslims-trust-the-bible.html

You claim that the Qur'an has no prophesies (excluding the day of judgement) and that is incorrect. You claim that the only way to tell that a book is from God is by prophesies that have come true. This is also incorrect.

The Qur'an 2:23,24 says: "And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah, if you should be truthful. But if you do not, and you will never be able to, then fear the Fire, whose fuel is men and stones, prepared for the disbelievers."

The proof that the Qur'an is from God is given in the challenge to make a surah (chapter) comparable to those in the Qur'an. In 1,400 years no one has done so. The beginning of surah 30 and surah 111 are also prophesies that have come true.

Sabr Nooh,

Here is a prophecy according to some Muslim scholars from Qs 30:42, "Corruption has spread on land and sea because of what men's hand have wrought."

This is not a prophecy. This is a general statement. It is like me saying, "The world is full of evil."

Many books contain many "so-called" prophecies, and then because of the laws of probability, a couple of them come true.

What makes the Bible different is that every single prophecy about Isa Al-Masih in the Old Testament is very specific and is fulfilled in the New Testament. Study carefully the list of prophecies about Isa Al-Masih in the article above. You will see that the Quran cannot match any of those prophesies.

You claim that the Quran cannot be proven. But the Quran tells us how the universe was created and no one at the time could prove it. Then science discovered it in 1960. What do you say to that?

The Quran tells us how humans were created and no one had knowledge about that at the time. In the 20th century science discovered it. And many other things have also been proven.

The Quran is unchanged by human hands. It's pure.

Dear Shaquille,

Thank you for your comment. You are right that certain parts of the Quran can be proven through science. Do you know that Genesis 1:1, written thousands of years before the Christian era, also said that God created the world? Did you know that the Gospel, written 550 years before Muhammad, said that God created the world? Do you realize that Muhammad got most of his theological ideas from the Jewish Taurat and the Christian Injil?

Shaquille, the same can be said about the creation of mankind. It is all recorded in clear detail in the Taurat.

As Christians, we believe that all truth is from God, and we can affirm the parts of the Quran that are true.

But again, as the above article explains, the Quran can't be proven in the same way as the Bible through prophecies. Every single prophesy about Isa Al-Masih that is given in the Old Testament is then fulfilled by Isa in the New Testament.

If the Bible is God's Word then why is it in different forms - the Old and New Testaments? What does it mean?

In the New Testament, Jesus Christ (pbuh) is the Son of God, He is begotten of the Father. In the King James edition this word does not exist. Who wrote it, Muslims or Christians?

Dear Zameer,

Thank you for your question. The Old and New Testaments are not different forms of the Bible. The Old Testament is the first part of the Bible and was complete by the time Jesus lived on earth.

Whenever Jesus talks about "the Law and the Prophets" He is referring to the Old Testament. The New Testament is the second part of the Bible and was written after Jesus returned to Heaven. God's Holy Spirit inspired men to correctly record the Words of Isa Al-Masih. God also gave further revelation to the Apostles.

Zameer, you will see that the Word "begotten" is in the New Testament. Please note, "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth" (Injil , John 1:14, NKJV).

Sometimes the word "begotten" is translated as "One and Only."

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I am shocked to see that you are ignorant of the teachings of the Quran. What silly logic are you giving about a book being true only if it predicts the future. Which Bible are you talking about my friend?

With so many versions, how can the book be true? I as a Muslim believe in the Bible as a book of God. But over time, people have distorted facts about the Bible and have created different versions.

On the other hand, there is only One Quran, and Allah will protect His word forever. There are at least ten million Muslims who know the Quran by heart. May I recommend that you at least read the Quran once.

Arjumand,

There is only one Bible. You are right that the Bible has many translations, but they are all from the same Greek and Hebrew manuscripts. Much research and work has been done to preserve those manuscripts, and when the manuscripts we have now are compared to the fragments that date back to the 2nd century BC (Taurat) and the 1st century AD (Injil), they are the same.

The differences between different Bible translations are very minor, such as the differences in translations of the Quran. The differences are because different scholars disagree about what word is best to convey the message in the original Greek and Hebrew languages.

You are right that the Quran tells about many prophets. It also states that to fully learn about those prophets, one must read the Taurat and the Injil (Qs. 2:136).

The Bible has not been changed. There are many verses that attest to this. Some of them are:

"The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God will stand forever" (Isaiah 40:8).

"Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens" (Zabur [Psalm] 119:89).

The Bible (Word of God) is eternal! It "stands firm," ie, it cannot be changed.

Are sure of your proof? Even the prophesies regarding Isa (Jesus) were not fulfilled according to your Bible. e.g Was Jesus Christ ever called Emmanuel?

Consider the Holy Quran with care. It is the only book Allah (God) promised to prevent from human's manipulation, is this not a prophecy? This makes it different from the Bible.

As you know, the Bible contains a lot of contradictions and errors. The Quran has confirmed prophecies that exist among us but you can't figure them out because you don't really want to know the truth.

You state that the Quran is the only book God promised would not be changed. I must disagree with you. There are many verses in the Bible stating that it will not be changed and is eternal.

"The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God will stand forever" (Isaiah 40:8).

"Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens" (Zabur [Psalm] 119:89).

The Bible (Word of God) is eternal! It "stands firm," ie, it cannot be changed.

"I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished" (Injil, Matthew 5:18).

The Bible cannot be changed until every prophecy has been fulfilled, which will be after the end of time as we know it, for the Bible even prophesies about what life will be like in Paradise after Isa Al-Masih returns to earth.

The Quran is the holy book of Islam (words of God), but we also read Hadiths (words of the prophet Muhammad saw). So, we have more books to read and learn than those of the Old and New Testaments.

Hadiths contain not only guidance but also prophecies spoken through the prophet Muhammad saw. Some prophecies of Al-Quran (mainly scientific, i.e. about plate tectonic theory) and some in Hadiths have been fulfilled.
Quote
# Jasmin 2012-12-12 21:25
~
Imtihanah,

The Hadiths cannot be the revelation of God nor should Muslims believe them. For example: The Prophet said, "If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease" (Sahih Al-Bukhari: Volume 4, Book 54, Number 537). When the Hadiths contain these kinds of ideas, it is clear that the Hadith are not reliable.

Explaining how the earth works, i.e. plate tectonic theory, is not a prophecy. A prophecy is foretelling of what will happen in the future. For example, the prophet Isaiah foretold that Isa Al-Masih would suffer for the sins of humanity 500 years before he lived. ”But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all” (The Prophet Isaiah 53:5-6).

Remember that the Old Testament pre-dates the Quran by thousands of years and the New Testament pre-dates the Quran by at least 500 years. Also it is important to note that most of the content of the Quran have been taken from the Old and New Testaments.

You said that the Bible is full of prophecies, but they should also be tested. One prophecy in the Bible is that as Jonah was in the belly of the fish for 3 days & 3 nights so shall the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth for 3 days & 3 nights. How many days was Jesus in the heart of earth?

The prophecy has another link also that Jonah was alive and to fulfill the prophecy Jesus must be alive but according to Christians Jesus was dead. If this is true, then the prophecy is not fulfilled. Please explain.

Wasim, you are absolutely correct. All prophecies need to be tested!

First of all the “heart of the earth” is figurative language for the grave. In Jewish thinking in the first century a part of a day was equivalent to a full day. So they would understand that part of Friday, all day Saturday and part of Sunday is three days. Other verses state that Jesus would rise on the third day (Injil, Matthew 16:21 and Luke 9:22). So he fulfilled the prophecy by being in the grave three days.

As to the second question, Jesus is alive today. He rose from the dead on the third day and He lives with His followers today. Thus He fulfilled that prophecy. In fact He promised those who love and follow Him, “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Injil, Matthew 28:19).

In my opinion, the Quran is God's words because it has not been altered from how it was revealed originally, while the Bible has been modified many times.

The Quran confirms and answers: why am I alive, who created the world, and where is my future after death.

Also, the Quran confirms Jesus' prophecy and his resurrection, but the Bible only emphasizes love and sin, which is a small part of life.

Abi,

Originally the Bible was written in the very old Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek languages. Because people no longer speak those languages, the Bible is translated into modern languages. Just like the Bible, the Quran has also been translated. To learn more about why there are different translations of the Bible, please go to: http://www.isaandislam.com/the-bible/why-are-there-so-many-translations-of-the-bible.html.

The focus of the Bible is on God restoring our relationship with Himself. To learn more about how you can have a relationship, go to http://www.isaandislam.com/way-of-salvation/the-divine-way.html. Yes, this could be described as "love and sin." But the Bible provides everything we need to live. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, "All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work."

But Muslims also believe that the Quran is the continuation of the one true religion which started with Adam and ended with Muhammad.

All your observations have been very clearly answered and scientific facts proven by Dr. Zakir Naik's video where he has a debate with Dr. William Campbell. If it still doesn’t answer your concerns then May Allah guide you, for no one else can.

Thank you for you gentle response to our content.

I want you to know that we have read and studied Islam for 50 years. In all of my studies I have not found Islam or the Quran defensible. There are many contradictions in Islam and the Quran. Answers that Muslims have given are not adequate. I have not closed my eyes to the truth and have tried to be open to Islam and the Quran in every respect.

I have listened to some of the video referred to above. It is very clear from the video that Dr. Campbell’s explanation about embryology shows how modern science contradicts the Quran.

My friend, I would encourage you to read the Injil very carefully. You will find, what so many Muslims have found, that Christ Jesus is the Savior of world. This salvation can be received by faith through grace alone. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Dear Admin,

I really appreciate this open discussion. I think this can help us, both Christians and Muslims, to present our point of view.

The subject is, the Quran or Bible, which one is God's (Allah's) Word. This is a very old and common argument.

As you said and boasted, that Bible is the Word of God.

As a Muslim, the Quran guides us Muslims to ask those people who are claiming, relating or attributing some thing to God which is not be fitting to God (Allah). The Quran tells us to ask them if you are right or true, then produce your proof.

And as a Christian you already clearly said that Bible is the Word of God. And the Quran is not. So I think it is a waste of time if I try to explain to you something from the Quran.

So if the Quran is not the Word of God and the Bible is, then let us examine Bible. Put this Book to the test. If it passes the test then we Muslims have no objections to accept that this Book is the Word of God. If you agree then I will continue.

Dear Syed:

Yes, we believe fully that the Bible is God's Word and that the Quran is not God's Word. And we are willing to answer any questions about the Bible.

It is important to note that most of the Quran comes from the Old and New Testaments. It is made up of stories that your prophet heard from the Jews and the Christians in Arabia.

You can read why we don't accept the Quran as God's Word by reading carefully three articles on contradictions in the Quran - http://www.isaandislam.com/Way-of-Salvation/

Finally, as to the Bible, it is much older than the Quran and it has been preserved by God. God is all powerful and He would not permit His holy Word to be corrupted. To charge that God's holy Word has been corrupted is to doubt the power of God.

Kind regards,

It is true that the Bible gives prophesies. But the real thing behind it all is that the Bible calls Jesus the Son of God. Can you believe that? Can you believe that God came here to earth and He was not even able to survive?

The Quran does give prophesies. It tells us that the skin is where all feeling is. It tells us about the convection of the currents during a rain, etc. But you have to be eager enough to search for them.

Allah is the only Creator. He created the heaven and the earth and Jesus. He Is the Master and Creator of all.

Arqam, thank you for your good comments.

Jesus is the Son of God, but not in the way mankind thinks of a son. "Son of God" is a figure of speech. Jesus is also called "Kalimah Allah" but He is not a sentence. And because God is all-powerful He can easily come to earth as a man if He pleases. Who can stop Him? http://www.isaandislam.com/isa-al-masih/why-muslims-cannot-deny-the-possibility-of-the-incarnation.html

The Triune God willed that Isa, the eternal Kalimah Allah, would be crucified to save us from eternal punishment. That is how much He loves us. Because He is all powerful, He rose from the dead. This is a great victory.

The prophecies you speak of are not prophecies at all. To prophesy is to foretell events that will happen in the future. For example the prophet Isaiah foretold (prophesied) that the Kalimah Allah would be crucified 500 years before it happened. Please see Isaiah 53. This is a perfect example of a true prophecy.

Yes, Allah is the creator and Master of the universe. The Kalimah Allah and the eternal Spirit (Rohullah), members of the Triune Godhead, also participated in the creation. Colossians 1:16 says, "For by him [Isa Al-Masih] all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him."

Good day,

You mentioned in one of your replies that Mohammad picked up most of the scientific information from the books before the Quran.

There is a surah in the Quran that is specifically about about iron, the metal. The words that used are "iron is sent down," which points to the fact that iron is not produced in the earth's core since it is not hot enough.

Therefore all the iron we have was once produced in stars in our galaxy. For a person who did not know how to read and write to gather information like this is remarkable.

I have not read the Bible but can you give me a reference from where this kind of information could have been gathered?

# Jason Gilead 2013-05-15 19:12

You are referring to Qs 54:25. Please note that not all translators translate this verse in the same way. Three well known and trusted translators of the Quran translate it as: “God brought forth iron” (Mohsin Khan), “revealed iron” (Pickthall), “made iron” (Shakir). Keep this in mind.

But be careful about your confidence in the Quran. There are many things that are confusing. For example a Muslim must believe that God made the stars as missiles to throw at devils. “And We have (from of old) adorned the lowest heave (sky) with lamps, and have made such (Lamps as) missiles to drive away Satan . . .” Qs 67:5). We all know that this idea is foolish. Of course you can say that Muhammad was speaking poetically, and I will accept that. He was also speaking poetically when he mentioned the matter of iron.

Please don’t be taken in by the idea that the Quran contains all kinds of scientific knowledge. I know this is hammered into our brains by Muslim apologists but it is just not so.

Hi Prayatna,

Thank you for your comment.

We believe the Bible is God's Word. Until now no one has shown me that the Bible is untrustworthy. And I would have to say that no one has shown me why I should trust the Quran. Please check out some of our articles about contradictions in the Quran on this site.

To my knowledge the Quran contains no prophecies. A prophecy is a prediction about an unknown event that will happen in the future. The Bible is full of prophecies about what will happen in the future.

You are absolutely correct. Many people are going to be very, very sad when some of the Biblical prophecies are fulfilled.

I agree with Michael Lee Cline. There are not just prophecies in Qur'an, there are also scientific facts!

Of course the Qur'an has nothing as complicated as modern science like what Mr. Campbell said about embryo. But the embryo thing and how humans were made in the Qur'an is going in the same direction. Look for how humans were made in the Qur'an. There is no contradiction there. And it makes humans curious to know the truth.

As a student I decided that the Qur'an is my best guide because it fulfills all the parts of living. In it, you find how to act toward God, people, the environment and so on. It is your fundamental guide for thinking.

First of all, to my knowledge, there are no prophecies (predictions of future events) in the Qur'an.

Secondly, it is impractical to accept any holy book because one thinks it contains scientific evidence. One man wrote a book, "Scientific Facts in the Bible." I think it is nonsense to write a book like this. The presence or absence of scientific facts do not verify that a book is revealed by God.

I am amazed at how people try to prove that the Qur'an or the Bible contain scientific facts.

The Holy Bible is God's only message for mankind because it adequately deals with the problem of sin and salvation. No other book provides a solution for how we humans can be sure of heaven. Jesus said to His followers: "I am the way the truth of the Life. No man comes to the Father but through Me" (Injil, John 14:6).

Dipen,

The best way to learn more about God is to read the Taurat, Zabur, and Injil. If you don't have one, you can read it online at www.biblegateway.com. Also, if you have a smartphone, look for the "YouVersion Bible" in your app store. This app is free and has lots of languages, so it is very likely you can read the Bible in your own language there!

Injil, Matthew 5:6 says, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled."

Zabur, Proverbs 11:19 says, "Truly the righteous attain life, but whoever pursues evil finds death."

Who is the life? The life is Isa Al-Masih. He said, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (Injil, John 14:6).

God told us through the Bible that none are righteous and all have sinned, including His Prophets (Romans 3:10). In the Bible, one can see indecent stories of His Prophets, but this doesn't mean that sin is allowed. These stories are to show us that God hates sin, so He already set a way for us to overcome our sin through the sacrifice of Isa Al-Masih.

Ashfaq,

What do you mean that “the Quran and Islam will eradicate all ideologies in the world”? Also, what is the point of doing that?

Through Isa, we can know that God is Love. He said to "love your enemies and pray for for those who persecute you" (Injil, Matthew 5:44). The highest values in the Christian faith are love, sacrifice, humility, and compassion for others, which includes patience.

However, He promised that He would bring whoever receives Isa Al-Masih as their Sacrifice to Himself. “Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me'” (Injil, John 14:6).

We will not stay forever in this world. The world will disappear. Therefore, “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near” (Isaiah 55:6). If you seek the truth, you’ll find that Isa is the way. For further information please go to: http://www.isaandislam.com/Isa-Al-Masih/jesus-a-sign-to-men.html

Dear Aila,

I want to show you some of the verses in the Injil that are still there without any changes. I am cross-checking with the Quran. The Injil, John 16:7-8 says,
"But what I am saying is true: my going is for your good: for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. And he, when he comes, will make the world conscious of sin, and of righteousness, and of being judged."

You said in a previous comment this is the "Holy Spirit." But in John, Isa (Pbuh) mentioned He is the Prophet Muhammed (Pbuh). Do you have any proof Isa is referring to the "Holy Spirit" here? And where do you see the Holy Spirit after Isa (pbuh)?

And we have proof that the comforter, ruler and judge mentioned in John 16:7-8 who would come after Isa (pbuh) is Muhammad (Pbuh) He came to the world and said the same thing (Qs 61:6) "the son of Mary, said, 'O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad.' But when he (Isa) came to them (Israel)with clear evidences, they said, "This is obvious magic."

Cross checking with verses of the Injil (John 16:7-8) and the Quran (Qs 61:6), what Allah says is true. The prophet Muhammad was the last messenger.

Mohammed,

The Book of John does not have any statements saying that the Prophet Muhammad is the Helper, Isa never says this. In the Injil, John 14:17, it says “And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.

From this verse, we know that it’s the unseen Spirit of truth; He’s from Above, not from the world. The world does not receive Him either, however Isa’s disciples know him. The Spirit of truth will dwell with and stay in them. From these things, how could it be possibly be Muhammad?

Fifty days after Isa went up to heaven, the Holy Spirit came down from Heaven and the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit. “When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:1-4). After that, the Holy Spirit led Isa’s disciples in continuing His work on earth even more than that was done when Isa was on earth because of the Holy Spirit.

They preached the Gospel (Good News about Isa), healed the sick, and cast out demons throughout the world.

The Bible is significant because it is God's Word given to man! It tells about how much God loves man and His plan for us.

The Bible explains how humans are separated from God because of sinfulness. It tells how God sent Isa Al-Masih (Jesus Christ) to earth to be the sacrifice for our sin and to provide eternal salvation for us.

For sure the Bible is not a book from Allah. Let me ask a question: if it is God's book then to whom was it revealed to and where? Second, Allah's book should be free from man's interpretation.

Omari,

Even though the Bible was written by men, it was inspired by God himself through the Holy Spirit. The Quran says, “…we bestowed on him [Isa] the Gospel wherein is guidance and a light, confirming that which was (revealed) before it in the Torah" (Qs 5:46). And the Quran says that the Word of God cannot be changed, “Perfected is the Word of thy Lord in truth and justice. There is naught that can change His words" (Qs 6:34). If the Quran acknowledges the Bible, then why don’t you?

The Catholic and the Protestant Bibles are a little bit different because at the time of the Reformation, the Protestants decided not to include the books which weren’t in the Hebrew Bible. However, despite the differences, both bring God’s message about Isa Al-Masih, in whom we have faith. Isa is the way, the truth, and the life. None can come to Allah except through him (Injil, John 14:6).

Christian history indicates that there were 3 different texts available at the time the first Bible and the first Torah were compiled. These text were A) Scacerdotal text, B) Iloyist text and C)Yavist text.

According to history, each text was compiled at different stages ranging from 200 years to 600 years after Prophet Moses (pbuh), ie: 10BC, 8BC, 6BC

From these 3 texts, the Bible (Old Testament) was compiled. Theological research has now proven that the first verses of Genesis contain a mixture of the 3 texts.

If the Bible is the word of God, can you please tell me who wrote the Old Testament (who wrote the Iloyist, Yavist and Scacerdotal texts). EXACT NAMES & SURNAMES of the authors and scribes would be a great help since these are the people who were inspired (by God) to write these texts.

And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age ”(Injil, Matthew 29:19-20). Isa wanted the world to know that He is God's Word who came down to earth.

Hours before he passed away, he converted to Christianity. As far as Muhammad (saw) not being mentioned in the Bible, he is in the Hebrew Bible where Mahmood is Hebrew for Muhammad.

The Bible was compiled gradually. The Taurat, Zabur, and Nabi were accepted as Scripture by the Jews of Jesus' day, and because most of the early Christians were Jews, they also accepted as Scripture. Much of the Injil was accepted immediately. What you referring to by Constantine was just a confirmation of what was already being accepted as Scripture by almost all of the early church.

We can't find Muhammad or “Mahmood” in the Bible. It should have been written clearly and several times in the Bible if what you said is right. Could you show me what the verse is in the Hebrew Bible?

Bid': It means short-period- from 3 to 9 years. The period between the loss of Jerusalem (614-15 A.C) by the Romans and their victory at Issus (622 A.C) was seven years, and that to the penetration of Persia by Heraclius was nine years.

Thank you for your comment. We believe there is only one true God. It's amazing that most people realize, there is something beyond this life and someone beyond this world. It's God and His Kingdom. “The heavens declare  the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun” (Zabur, Psalm 19:1-4).

From the beginning God revealed Himself. The Bible taught, He revealed Himself as “I am”. '“...'I am who I am”' (Taurat, Exodus 3:14). He is the God who wants to be sought. He longs for an intimate relationship.

However, some people call God, Allah. The name of Allah: is from Semitic language. Al means the, and Ilah means deity, God. Semitic language is a group language consisting of Arabic, Amhar, and Hebrew. In Hebrew, Allah means Elohim, El, Elyon and Eloah.

Since Taurat was written in Hebrew, therefore the first name for God the Creator is Elohim.

“Allah” was firstly used by those who were called “Kafiroon” in Mecca before Muhammad was born. The Arabic Christians at that time also used Allah. Yet, nowadays, Muslims claim Allah is Islamic name for God.

Blessings.

It is expedient that truth and clear explanation is made here. "Prophecy of a messenger (in a book) does not declare another book as substandard or false book. Quran is a book that is clearly far from falsehood. Islam gives enough and non-contradicti ng explanations about the Christians/Jews and their faith (in God). If it were to be the Bible, the explanations would have been modified or partly removed. Prophecy of prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) was made in the Bible but was interpreted to be another thing (like Holy spirit). Frankly speaking, Christians have to be careful of what they say about God so as not to get themselves blamed in the last day. If you will continue to accept my comments, I have a lot of peaceful comments on this issue. Thanks.

Many thanks for your comment. It's an old saying from Muslims that the Bible has been changed. Where's the proof? However, the Bible stands firm throughout time and convicts many people that it's the Word of God given through His chosen people. Everyone, including Muslims, should trust the Bible.

The text of the Bible can be traced back almost two thousand years. The Bible (the Taurat and Injil) proves that God's word is unchangeable. "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away." (Injil, Mark 13:31).
