Thanks Mr. Ocheje for putting space into time as far as it concerns Mr. Moshay's comment. It is true that Biblio (not Bibilo) is the Greek word for 'Bible'; the reason the Bible is called 'Bible' is because it is a collection of writings by different writers, mostly as they were led by the Holy Spirit of God what to write, others rather wrote history, still others wrote testimony, yet others wrote prayers, psalms etc. I am not Mr. Moshay but I spent many days thinking about my existence in this world.

From a Biblical perspective the existence of a Christian has much to do with two expressions found in the Bible, the one being 'standing in the gap' for other people, the other being 'building up the hedge'. These are the main ways how God's glory gets reflected back to Him and that was what Jesus spent much of His time doing when He came in the flesh. The gist of Mr. Moshay's book is that Allah is not YHWH (God), as such Jesus did not get revelation by an angel from Allah but from YHWH (spoken Yahweh). Here is one revelation to as well as about Jesus as described in a book inside the Bible called Luke, from a translation of the Bible called the English Jubilee 2000 Bible, especially Luke 9:35: Luke 9:27: But I tell you in truth, there are some standing here who shall not taste of death until they see the kingdom of God. Luke 9:28: And it came to pass about eight days after these words, he took Peter and John and James and went up into the mountain to pray. Luke 9:29: And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment [was] white [and] glistering. Luke 9:30: And, behold, two men talked with him, who were Moses and Elijah, Luke 9:31: who appeared in majesty and spoke of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem. Luke 9:32: But Peter and those that were with him were heavy with sleep, and when they awoke, they saw his glory and the two men that stood with him. Luke 9:33: And it came to pass as they departed from him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to remain here; and let us make three tabernacles: one for thee and one for Moses and one for Elijah, not knowing what he said. Luke 9:34: While he was speaking this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they feared as they entered into the cloud. Luke 9:35: And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son; hear him. Luke 9:36: And when the voice was past, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and told no one in those days any of those things which they had seen. Luke 9:37: And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the mountain, many people met him. Another quote that may be of interest to you is the following, especially verse 14, about Jesus, the faithful and true Witness: Revelation of John 3:14: And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; Behold, he who saith, Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God: Revelation of John 3:15: I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot; I would thou wert cold or hot. Revelation of John 3:16: So then because thou art lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Revelation of John 3:17: Because thou sayest, I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing and knowest not that thou art wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, Revelation of John 3:18: I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined in the fire, that thou may be made rich; and clothed in white raiment, so that the shame of thy nakedness not be uncovered; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou may see.
