To Amin Razaque

Don't you know that the Qur'an gives massive testimony and support to the Bible Mr Razaque? Don't you know that Allah claims to have authored the Bible? don't you know that the Qur'an claims to confirm the Bible? Don't you know that the Qur'an self-destructs by claiming to confirm the Bible, whilst at the same time denying it's most important teaching?

Don't you know that Chrtistianity absolutely stakes its claim to validity on the Lord Jesus Christ's resurrection from the dead? and that the New Testament contains thirty-four passages, all very early, and dated between 1 and 34 years after Jesus' crucifixion, some of which are traceable to the earliest Christians, thirty-four passages which say that Jesus died or was raised from the dead (cited in, "Paul Meets Muhammad a Christian-Muslim Debate on the Resurrection" Michael R.Licona, Baker Books, Grand Rapids, Michigan, 2006, page 139).

Don't you know that the earliest Gospel is that of Mark, with an authorship between AD 55 and AD 70? don't you know that the Gospels were most assuredly written before the close of the first century, and written by eye-witnesses of the events recorded, or written under the direction of eye-witnesses? don't you know that the Apostle Paul was killed in Rome during AD 64, and his inspired writings comprise about 50% of the New Testament, with his earliest writings dated to around 1 year after the Lord Jesus Christ's crucifixion? and you ask me whether I know that the Bible was written more than 100 years after the death of Jesus Christ!!

Don't you know that the Sahi Hadith of Bukhari wasn't written down until more than 200 years after the death of Muhammad? so if you think the writing down of New Testament documents between 1 and 65 years after the Lord Jesus Christ's crucifixion is too long for them to be reliable accounts, you and other Muslims will have to disregard all of Sahi Bukhari!!

If the Bible is good enough for Allah and was good enough for Muhammad and Islam's most eminent scholars, why isn't it good enough for you Mr Razaque?
