*First and foremost this topic is for those who either believe and follow the teaching of the Bible, or those who believe and follow the teachings of
Prophet Mohammed (Quran/Hadith/Islam) *
1. Gabriel, an angel of the Lord who is mentioned by name in two books (Daniel and Luke) in the Bible. And mentioned as the angel who delivered the
Quran recitations to Prophet Mohammed. (I also believe this angel is mentioned in other places within the Bible but not by name, but by description of
his title of authority under God's Kingdom-which I will elaborate on later)
Gabriel was written in Luke as the angel who delivered the message to Zacharias that he would bear a son and name him John. And again in Luke the
angel Gabriel was sent to Mary to deliver the message she would bear a son and his name was to be called Jesus (KJV is used in this post) And these
are the exact words the angel
Gabriel spoke to Mary (regarding Jesus):
(Luke Chapter 1:30-32)
30- And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31- And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.
32- He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
2. This is the message delivered unto Prophet Mohammed from angel Gabriel to Zacharias
(Surat Maryam 19:7)
[He was told], "O Zechariah, indeed We give you good tidings of a boy whose name will be John. We have not assigned to any before [this] name."
And to Mary-(regarding Jesus)
(Surat Maryam 19:19-22)
19-He said, "I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy.
20-She said, "How can I have a boy while no man has touched me and I have not been unchaste?
21-He said, "Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, 'It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a
matter [already] decreed.
And later verses about Jesus:
(Surat Maryam 19:34-35)
34-That is Jesus, the son of Mary - the word of truth about which they are in dispute.
35-It is not [befitting] for Allah to take a son; exalted is He! When He decrees an affair, He only says to it, "Be," and it is.
*So pausing there*
We can already clearly see the discrepancy. Same supposed Angel Gabriel, delivering very similar messages but with one BIG flaw.
In the Bible the angel Gabriel tells Mary Jesus shall be called "the Son of the Highest" but in Quran the angel Gabriel say's it is "not befitting
for Allah to take a son"
As a Believer in the Bible as the being the Holy and anointed Word of God and therefore using it to discern (wisdom) Then clearly something is not
1. The Angel Gabriel is a liar
2. The Angel Gabriel was telling the truth initially, but fell somewhere between 1BC and 700AD.
3. Mohammed was a liar.
4. The entity that delivered the message to Mohammed was a liar and identity thief.
So *IF* The Bible is correct and legitimate (which I believe it is) Then right here in these few passages above we are given the wisdom to know that
Islam is not a Religion ordained by the same God who sent forth the Bible.
This is only one, of the many discrepancies I have found so far, but one of the most obvious and crucial to all of us who believe or want to believe
in the True God, one and only God.
I welcome any help here and if I need to submit links to the above Bible passages and Surat please let me know. But what are your thoughts?
