in response to reader comment: Just an addendum re: Islam and the Judeo-Christian tradition

Interesting. So you're saying, Qur'an 7:157 would read: "educated, gentile, Biblical prophet".

Do you bring this up because the prophets of the Bible were all Jewish?

Why doesn't it state Mo's name? How do we know which "prophet of Islam" this is?

Another verse from the Qur'an states Abraham was neither a polytheist, nor a Jew, nor a Christian (Q.3:67), however he (Ibrahim) is the spiritual father of all believers.

Seems like the Qur'an just took parts of the Old Testament, mostly, and very little of the New Testament, and did a 360 with them all.

And it's a mess, as you say.

You know what's funny - up until this day, Islam is still trying to adopt more from the Bible.

A new phenominon has sprung up over the net - at least, I did not know about it. It can be described as "the Qur'an confirms the teachings of the Apostle Paul".

Neither the Qur'an nor the Hadith ever mention the name of Paul. But sites such as submission.org, thetruecall.com, answer-islam.com and other pro-Islamic sites are repeating the history of the origins of the Qur'an - taking parts of the Bible and twisting them.

Somehow, somewhere they've realized Paul was a pretty important guy, Biblically. He was - Paul wrote most of the New Testament.

Of course, this idea that the Qur'an confirms Paul's teachings is ridiculous. Paul preached a crucified Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 1:23), who was the Son of God.

The Qur'an preached a non-crucified Jesus (Surah 4:157) who was a prophet.

There's many more differences, but the point is, again, Islam is using the Qur'an to twist the info. of the Bible.

Too late for them to add the name "Paul."
