Christians view all TRUTH as coming from God. The stories in the Quran about Adam, Moses, Isa Al-Masih and other prophets that are in accordance with the Torah, Zabur, and Injil are accepted by Christians. For example, Isa Al-Masih was born miraculously (without a human father) by Mary. Also He was also without sin, did miracles, and raised dead people to life. Both the Quran and the Injil record these facts. These kinds of truths will surely be well received by Christians.
When the contents of the quran agree with the Bible, Christians will agree with it. However, Christians reject those parts of the Quraran that conflict with the Bible. For example: The Quran says that Jesus was not crucified. This statement rejects the clear teaching of the Bible that Jesus was crucified. This is also a proven fact by secular writers. Thus Christians reject the Quran’s mistake in denying the crucifixion.
The Bible is Holy Scripture
The only book that Christians view as Holy Scripture is the Bible. They believe that this is the only book given by God to man.
To Christians, the Quran is the Muslim’s Holy Scripture. Christians do not accept it as Holy Scripture. Christians only read the Quran to learn more about what Muslims believe.
All of the Bible is Important
Every part of the Bible is of equal importance. Some Christians might say the New Testament, or Injil, is more important because it tells the story and teachings of Isa Al-Masih. This is true. But the Old Testament (Taurat, Zabur, and Nabi) points to Isa Al-Masih. These books give prophecies about Isa so that when He came, His followers knew that He was the Promised One – the Messiah.
Everyone Should Read the Bible
If you haven’t read the Bible, we encourage you to read it. Try to find the Bible in your own language. You will understand it best that way. If you can’t find a Bible in your heart language, most bookstores carry English Bibles, including Lifeway, Family Christian Stores, and Barnes & Noble. There are also several websites online where you can read the Bible in English. Bible Gateway is a website where you can find many translations of the Bible.
As you read, ask Allah to show you the Truth about the Bible and Isa Al-Masih. If you pray this, He will answer!
The Greatest Truth
The Bible tells the greatest truth of all time. It tells how God planned from the very beginning of time to send Isa Al-Masih to Earth to die for the sins of the people on Earth! Isa died for you and your sins. He wants to be a part of your life. If you are interested in this, go to www.isaandislam.com/Way-of-Salvation to learn more.
