Gospel of John 10:24) Then came the Jews around him, and said to him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou art the Christ, tell us plainly. 25) Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I did in my Father's name, they testify concerning me. 26) But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said to you.

27) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28) And I give to them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any pluck them out of my hand. 29) My Father, who gave [them to] me, is greater than all; and none is able to pluck [them] out of my Father's hand.

30) I and [my] Father are one.

31) Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32) Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shown you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

32) The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy, and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.

Even as they did not believe and ready to stone Him, even they knew He identified Himself as being one and the same as the Father.

Only in unbelief does one try and make the argument that the Quran makes better arguments for Islam than the Holy Bible does for Christianity. Every argument made that says the Holy Bible is not the truth is a repeat of ancient lies from before and during the time Jesus Christ revealed Himself to the Jews nearly two thousand years ago, and those lies are with us today.

Notice that every where one makes a cross reference to the Holy Bible and tries to make the later words of the Quran seem applicable, it counters the words of Jesus Christ. That would make the references in the Quran of Jesus Christ as though Jesus Christ did not know what HE was talking about, or the Quran makes Jesus Christ out as a liar. So, in your view, who is the liar, the Prophet of Islam, or Jesus Christ? Remember, even the Jewish rulers of the time said the same thing as the Quran in condemning Jesus Christ to the cross.

Finally, just so there no mistake and one may have further understanding, if one desire to believe it, Jesus gave up His life on the cross:

John 10:17) Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again. 18) No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received from my Father.

So, in the plain witness of Jesus Christ's own words, who do you think one should believe, Jesus Christ, or people who not want to believe in Him? From this perspective, Jesus Christ will always win.
