Jesus answered, "I am the way ... " (Gospel, John - Yahya 14:6)

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.
