My dear sohail rabina yusahil 3alaikum akthar wa akthar.

I do not study early Christianity but the Gnostic Bibles eg: The gospel of Thomas, the gospel of Judas were not canonized period.

For your likes that are only interested in peolemics, you do not realize that Christians do not tell us that the Bible is the word of God, they tell us it is inspired by God. The Bible in a way is like the hadith. Some hadith is saheeh and was included in the canon (of I forgot that you know no Arabic but you just have to check with your Mullah) and some hadith was considered da3if and was not included in the canon. This is the same as the gnostic Bibles they were not canonized because they were considered by early Christians as being like a hadith da3if. If you do not get this point, you are really beyond help. so are you beyond help our dear sohail?

And remember that what is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

As for the main event in Islam it was tanzeel al-Qur'an and in the case of Christianity it was Jesus. Whether you believe either claim is not the point but this is the reality of both religion so again

1. The bible as a book equals al-hadith matn and isand included.

2. Jesus as an event equals the Qur'an.

Do us all a favor stop your polemics and get a life....
