Dear Nuray,

Jesus and Moses have a lot in common. They are both Jewish and their lives were sought after as babies. You said Jesus felt no pain on the contrary in suffered the ultimate to pay for our sins.

God made a convenant with the house of Israel on mount Sinai which we call the old convenant and God made a new convenant with man kind through the blood of Jesus being God incarnate. Jesus is the messiah that God promised the world since the time of Moses.

Jesus gave us a new commandment which is to Love our fellow human beings as we love ourselves. This is the greatest Commandment.

In the Koran the word love is not mention once. The Koran is full of stories that make no sense. The most poignant one is when it confuses Saul for Gedeon when a hundred years seperate the two men. The koran says Noah son drowned with the unbelievers but then says everybody was saved. This goes to show that those who put the Koran together had no idea who these biblical personalities were. The Koran was put together in order of length. Meaning from long surah's to the shorter ones, not in chronological order like the Bible. No wonder it's so confusing and contradictory.
