While the Holy Bible does tell of the words of Moses coming back to haunt the Jewish people, and they chose to follow the unbelief of the Chief Rulers during the revealing of Jesus Christ as HaMashiach in preparation for His rejection according Isaiah 53 (etal), we must remember as well that Christianity was populated with only Jewish believers initially (salvation is of the Jews, according to the words of Jesus Christ). Only in the Romanization of the Church hundreds of years before the time of the Islamic Prophet did the Jewish influences suffer and were expelled for the anti-Semitic sentiments of non-Jewish believer, blaming the Jewish people at the time of the crucifixion for the death of Jesus.

That the Quran seems to emulate the Holy Bible makes sense, but only in that it became a point of departure to build a written work outlining why the Islamic Prophet did not want to believe in a Jewish world view concerning life in this mortal realm (a man's pride, lusts and sins needing redemption by the sacrificial death burial resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ), and eternal life in the Kingdom of Almighty God with Jesus Christ on the throne in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. The Islamic Prophet tries to give some credence to his version of who Jesus Christ is, then make Him out to be a liar. That is what is seen as one who believes every word that Jesus Christ said and sees the Quran fail to honor the words of Jesus Christ.

We will make this a part one, but in so closing, think about the visitor that came to Abraham just before sending the two other companions to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, remembering what was witnessed to our fellow reader from the UAE, that the entity refered to in the Holy Bible as Almighty God has from the very beginning been revealed in the complexity of His personality, later shown in three faces, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Had this been held to in the Quran's depiction of the Brit Hadassah, the Quran would have made that distinction as well and not held to the Jewish insistence of the misinterpretation of the sh'ma.
