Alright. So Lewis asking, is it possible that the Quran and Bible were once the same or part of the same book? I love this question because it’s I think there’s a lot of people who do wonder about this kind of thing. And are all of these religious texts from different belief systems, are they all related in some capacity?

Speaker 2

And I know extremely smart people who also struggle with this and ponder it.

Speaker 1

Yeah. So what do you guys think?

Speaker 3

Do you want to oh, my lighting got funny.

Speaker 1

Sorry. It’s on your lighting causing that. That’s something else causing that.

Speaker 2

She was transfigured. Tina is on her way to heaven right now. Everybody.

Speaker 1

I’m sorry.

Speaker 3

Yeah, I’m sorry. Okay.

Speaker 2

Right. So it’s hard to sort of prove out of the Bible necessarily without an extensive comparison. But if you look at every single religion except for what I believe is biblical Christianity and maybe even the Judeo Christians religions, if you look at all the other ones, they all have the same thing in common, which is you can save yourself and you get yourself into heaven or you do this and that there’s only one religion that says you can’t do it. There’s nothing you can do by yourself. And all you could do is accept that and depend on God to save you, to transform you, to do all these things. And yes, we have a role in it. We have to make decisions, we have to cooperate. But only Christianity and Judeo Christianity says that God is the one who is in control. God is the one who by his Grace saves us. Not by our merits do we get saved. And only does God provide us even the ability to become the type of person who wants us to be for eternity. So that’s so unique. And I’ve got to say, we could go through so many other things, too, where Quran says Jesus is just a Prophet, whereas the Bible says and we’ll be looking at this soon where it says Jesus is the creator, Jesus is divinity, Jesus is God.

Speaker 2

There’s so much there. You can’t possibly be a Christian and believe that there’s a Crown. And if you’re a Jew, you can’t believe the Quran because the Quran is going to say Isaac was the favorite son. I was talking to Isaac Ishmael is the favorite son is through Ishmael that the world’s going to be blessed, which then cuts out the line of Isaac, which Judeo Christian lead system says it was through Isaac that the savior came ultimately Jesus. So that in a nutshell, is why we can’t go there. We can’t say they’re the same book.

Speaker 1

That’s great. All right. Let’s go ahead and get our next question up. Unless you have anything.

Speaker 2

Yeah. Do you want to chime in?

Speaker 3

No. I mean, when I think of the Quran and the Bible being the same book, I hear what people are saying because there are a lot of the same characters in both of these books. But as far as the Bible speaking for itself, if you read two Peter 121, it says for the prophecy came out of old so the Bible came out of old by the will of men, but Holy men of God Spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. So the prophecies of the Bible the words of the Bible were given by the Holy spirit. But when you look at the Quran, basically the Quran says that these words were given by Mohammed from an angel or he had these visions and so it’s a very different source that they’re both claiming to have.

Speaker 2

The words of these books written by pretty much in dispute is fact that the Quran didn’t come into existence until that was around 380, right.

Speaker 3

At least, yeah, not later.

Speaker 2

And it wasn’t even reduced to written writing, I think, until even a couple of hundred years after that. Don’t quote me on it but the general idea is that’s how it is. It came way after Jesus walked the Earth, came way and then it became a reading book as we know even further after that.

Speaker 3

Yeah, and the thing is too I mean the scripture of the Old Testament that was originally written in Hebrew while the Koran was written in Arabic which again comes into existence hundreds and hundreds of years later. So, yeah, it’s not the same book.

Speaker 2

Yeah, good point. Yeah, that’s right. Regional language was Arabic whereas the Bible Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, a bunch of different languages that it was written in. Exactly.
