BIBLE IN THE QURAN
Let’s look at some of what the Quran says about the scripture and the Gospel.

Mohammed was instructed by Allah as to where to get his advice when he had doubts:
Sura 10:94 If thou wert in doubt as to what We have revealed unto thee, then ask those who have been reading the Book from before thee: the Truth hath indeed come to thee from thy Lord: so be in no wise of those in doubt.
That verse was recited hundreds of years after the bible had been translated into every popular language and was being read all over the known world. Indeed we have over 5300 partial or complete manuscripts of God’s Word that were penned prior even to 300AD.
sura 5:47 Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel.
So Christian’s are instructed by Mohammed to judge Islam according to what God revealed to us in the Gospels! From a Christian perspective only the single verse in the Quran that follows is needed to judge Islam, because it reveals that Mohammed’s words are COMPLETELY OPPOSITE of the WHOLE SUBJECT of the Gospels!
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Surah 4:157 That they said (in boast), “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-
In Jesus words: Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Sura 5:68 Say: “O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord.” It is the revelation that cometh to thee from thy Lord, that increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. But sorrow thou not over (these) people without Faith.
Mark 1:1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
1John 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
Muslims are even given similar instruction as Christians! sura 4:136 O ye who believe! Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and the scripture which He hath sent to His Messenger and the scripture which He sent to those before (him). Any who denieth Allah, His angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Day of Judgment, hath gone far, far astray.
1John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three are one.
Some Muslims make a claim that the bible was corrupted but they are going straight against the Quran. Besides the fact that it would be an admission that their “Allah”, didn’t know the bible that Jews and Christians uniformly use, would be corrupted, before he inspired the above verses commanding that we judge by, and stand fast by, the Gospels!
Mohammed was supposed to “ask those who have been reading the Book from before thee: If thou wert in doubt”, but Mohammed slaughtered them instead.
Sura 5:48 To thee We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety:…
While it was supposed to have served to confirm and guard, we can see that the 23 year heavily abrogated book of Mohammed wound up being the perfect opposite. Indeed this study alone helps demonstrate why a whopping 71 out of only 114 suras are subject to abrogation – if indeed there even exist bible related Quran verses that abrogate them.
…so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the Truth that hath come to thee. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute;
My Muslim friends, is the one true God of the Jews and Christians, that revealed Himself over a 1600 year record through ALL of the prophets and apostles, showing you the truth? Don’t you wonder why women are treated the way they are in this religion of men, that is at the direct expense of women? Why are there multiple virgins in Mohammed’s heaven for men? Where are the verses saying what his heven is like for women? I wonder who cooks the chicken in Mohammed’s heaven?
How is it that a “peaceful” religion engaged in imperialistic conquest, murder and theft of property all the way up into Tours France and Vienna Austria? How is it that another 12,000 deadly Islamic terror attacks have been perpretated just since 9-11?
Have you ever read the scripture that Mohammed told you to: “Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and the scripture which He hath sent to His Messenger and the scripture which He sent to those before (him).“? How can you follow the Quran and believe in the scripture that came before Mohammed, if you haven’t read it?
Here is a link to an introduction to the Gospels. Why not read a little for yourself?
May God bless you and guide us ALL in ALL truth.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Sura 5:43 But why do they come to thee for decision, when they have (their own) law before them?- therein is the (plain) command of Allah; yet even after that, they would turn away. For they are not (really) People of Faith.
