Reader Prashant delivers a revelation about where truth is to be revealed and where it's value is appropriated and altered to achieve a result not originally intended, as we learn in DNM's discussions of al-Tabari's attempts to illucidate on non-Arabic versions of Quranic transliterations from variant (questionable?) sources. To this observer, if the narrative is to be reviewed as to how the entity called Gabriel in Quranic lore is to be compared to the messenger to the Hebrew maiden in the prior Gospel narrative of the virgin birth hundreds of years before the Islamic version, do we not err in thinking that this later novel approach misses the point of the prior announcement of the Savior, whose sacrifice on the cross and death, burial and resurrection is more fully witnessed and is alive today than the replacement story of the Quran that attempts to destroy the Gospel? The tomb is empty, but the place of the cross (the real location) still exists.
Reader Prashant's allowance for the more provocative narrative that the Gospel is still a truth of a message left for promising salvation to those who believe its message and later when Gabriel appeared to Daniel, the prophet of Israel's future in these times, was this not the true appearance that the Gospel takes as the message to Israel that comes from answering to the penitent heart of Daniel? Is this not the truth of Scripture?
It is written: test the spirits: where did the inspiration of the Gospel (compared to the Quran) come from and how does one think that the original message is altered except it be corrupted the second time? This is what Reader Prashant's remarks allude to: be careful to whom one attempts to give credence when the truth is at stake: the consequences of life are dependent upon truth when eternity is at stake.
The Gospel is still true (it never changed): believe on the LORD Yeshua, Jesus Christ and be saved.
