1. Since Adam and Eve, the plan was made for the coming of the Messiah, savior, Jesus

2. OT is GODs words to prophets who prophesized about the coming of the Messiah, his life, his teachings, details about his death and his resurrection

3. Since the beginning of the world, people tried to worship anything, sometimes fire, moon, sun, etc. GOD started to talk to us through his prophets, even these prophets couldn't understand GOD because GOD almighty is beyond our understanding, and we are so limited that we can't say what and who GOD is. The only fully human and fully divine who could deliver Gods message to us is Jesus

4. NT, Jesus came to set us free from old beliefs and strict relation ship with almighty GOD, people in the past feared GOD, we Christians do not fear GOD we love him, we do good out of love not out of fear. why? Simply because only Jesus understood GOD? Why? Simply because Jesus is the only divine messenger who came from GOD who is the son of GOD.

5. Gods words to the world through his prophets can only be understood from Jesus because Jesus is the only heavenly prophet; he is the only heavenly gift that came to humanity. Jews believe in the messiah and still waiting for his coming, many of them converted to Christianity which is why you see the number of those who believe and practice Judaism is very minimal. This is what is called free will that God provided to us. Whether Muslims and Jews believe in Jesus as a savior is irrelevant, their unbelief will not change the fact that Jesus is the holy son of God that is perfect, never sinned and can not be compared with any other prophet.

6. We believe that if any one of us will go to heaven is out of Gods unconditional love and mercy but not because of our deeds that Judaism and Islam believe in

7. Prophets in OT were only human, they sinned, they were not perfect, Jesus came as a perfect example, because only he can provide perfect example. What ever prophets did or failed to do in OT is irrelevant, our example is Jesus and Jesus alone.

8. Muhammad not only failed as a prophet he also brought whole nation backward to even before OT,
Example: Islam believes in uncleanness of women during their period the same as was written in OT, women during their period are considered not clean and prevented from praying, or touching the holy books. Sin only or bad words coming from our mouths made us unclean (men and women). This is only one example out of many.

Hope this helps Harrak
