I am wondering, when you speak of Adam being muslim. for me, a Christian, I see no claim, only that he is the first man made by God. however, my question is - what of the twelve tribes of Israel. The Bible in the Old testament is very specific about this.

For Christians, Jesus allowed those who were not of the twelve tribes, to know God. Before him, only those descended from the Jewish people could say that this was their God. This is why , for us, jesus brought a new covenant, that was different from the old testament, a different agreement with God, for those not descended from the Jewish people.

How does this fit with your perception..? I ask out of respect, and curiosity, as I feel sometimes that Jews, Christians, Muslims are like three brothers, quarreling with each other, but living in the same house :)
