The arguments of Muslim scholars: 1. The coming of the last Prophet Mohammed is predicted in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. 2. The coming of Mohammed is predicted in sacred Christian and Jewish books. 3. Mohammed glorified Jesus and Mary, as predicted. 4. Muslim scholars point out that only Mohammed was sent for the entire human race, while Jesus and other prophets were sent only for Jews. 5. The corruption of the Bible leaves the Qur’an as the only book to be the true Word of God. 6. Many, if not all, of the Muslim witnesses of Mohammed’s sayings and deeds are well known by their virtues and approved to be reliable sources of Truth. In contrast, the public, for example, does not know the people who wrote the New Testament, and nobody knows how well they were to be trusted. 7. The Qur’an records many facts about the nature of life and the nature of things which have since been proven by science today. 8. The Qur’an was given from Allah to Mohammed through a mediator angel known as Djibril (Gabriel). The facts from the Bible: 1. The “last prophet” argument is based on speculation over two verses that Moses referred to about the next prophet who will come after him; Jesus was speaking about the Holy Spirit Who was yet to come upon believers in Him. 2. Christianity is based on the Canon of the Bible and not on the many non-canonical documents, for they are not considered inspired by God because they contradict each other and the Canon itself. 3. Mohammed actually glorified himself over every other messenger of God who came before him, speaking about himself as a “Seal of Prophets”. But the Holy Spirit actually glorifies Jesus as the Son of God and the Only Saviour, Whose second coming all Christians await since His ascension into Heaven after His resurrection from the dead. 4. The history of Christian expansion shows that Christ was sent not only for Jews but for the entire world. 5. The Bible in its entirety has one consistent message about salvation, in spite of the fact that its 66 biblical books were written by 40 different authors over a period of 1500 years. There are no contradictions which might normally be present in books written by so many writers. It shows that One God is behind this Book. The character of God described identically by so many authors, as well as the plan of salvation through the blood sacrifice of an innocent and pure Being instead of us, a sinful and wicked people, to cover our sins. It starts at the very beginning of the Bible, in Genesis 3, when God Himself made a sacrifice of an innocent animal to cover the sin of Adam and Eve. God used the skin of this animal to cover their bodies, and the “covering of our sins” continues until the final book of the Bible, called Revelation, with the triumph of the Lamb of God who once was slain to be the sinless sacrifice for the entire human race. 6. The Bible teaches us not to trust human beings, for our hearts are corrupted and we need to rely only upon God Himself. Most of the prophets, kings, judges and apostles had a bad reputation even during time of their ministry. One had a mother who was a prostitute, another committed immoral sins, some were afraid to witness, etc. In spite of their shortfalls and failures, God used them to glorify Himself, as He said to Paul in the second epistle to the Corinthians: “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in (your) weakness.” We do not rely on the testimony of men simply because of their genealogy and credibility, but upon the Message itself, as to whether it really came from God. 7. The Bible itself speaks of many scientific facts. One of these facts concerns the shape of Earth as “hanging” in space without any support (not held up by a turtle, elephant or whale, etc. as we read in some of the earliest legends). We can find a description of dinosaurs and a “greenhouse effect” that influenced the growth of giant flora and fauna on antediluvian Earth. On the subject of science, the Qur’an cannot claim to be more “holy” than the Bible. 8. In many cases, God Himself spoke directly with His prophets like Abraham, Moses, and others. Jesus also communicated directly with the Father. In contrast, Mohammed never experienced the presence of Allah Himself.
