well i'll try...jesus did reconfirm the law and so did mohmmad.but christianity didnt really became a religion until about 600 years after christ. the jews that followed jesus were called christians by others jews as a mockery. but the christian took the name and turned it into a beauitful religion. but over the hundred of years man wrote down what they all experiened and heared about jesus. even today through research people see that man is not exempt from mistake.

to help conform the truth...national geographics had a special on about the bible and through reseach. it was concluded that although the bible is holy book and a basic part of many religions. it was not free from human error. the koran on the other hand was memorized. the word koran means recite. many muslims learned and memorized the koran. although islam spread through many countries and in different laguages the meaning are not the same.

the koran was put into book form 400 or 600 years after mohammad death. after highly educated religious scholars study closely the meaning of the memorized quran. now since then the koran never been changed or revised. it is in its pure form since being written in to book form. but just like the bible man wrote it down. now during that transittion it could be possible that error had occured. i believe they all all right the piece that maybe error is the written form
