We sent, following in their footsteps, Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming that which came before him in the Torah; and We gave him the Gospel, in which was guidance and light and confirming that which preceded it of the Torah as guidance and instruction for the righteous.
43:63 - 64, Qur'an
And [so] when Jesus brought clear proofs, he said, "I have come to you with wisdom and to make clear to you some of that over which you differ, so fear God and obey me.
John 20:17, Gospel
[Indeed, He is] my God, and your God.
Luke 4:8, Gospel
[So] you will worship the Lord your God, and Him only will you serve. [This is a straight path.]"
3:52 - 53, Qur'an
But when Jesus felt [persistence in] disbelief from them, he said, "Who are my supporters for [the cause of] God?" The disciples said, "We are supporters for God. We have believed in God and testify that we are submitting to Him. Our Lord, we have believed in what You revealed and have followed the messenger Jesus, so register us among the witnesses [to truth]."
21:89 - 90, Qur'an
And [remember] Zacharias, when he called to his Lord, "My Lord, do not leave me alone [with no heir], while You are the best of inheritors." So We responded to him, and We gave to him John, and amended for him his wife. Indeed, they used to hasten to good deeds and supplicate Us in hope and fear, and they were to Us humbly submissive.
So the angels called him while he was standing in prayer in the chamber, "Indeed, God gives you good tidings of John, confirming a word from God and [who will be] honorable, abstaining [from women], and a prophet from among the righteous."
19:12 - 13, Qur'an
[And so God] said, "O John, take the Scripture with determination." And We gave him judgement [while yet] a boy and affection from Us and purity, and he was fearing of God.
[And indeed,] Zacharias and John and Jesus and Elijah - all were of the righteous.
21:91 - 92, Qur'an
And the one who guarded her chastity, so We blew into her [garment] through Our Spirit [Gabriel], and We made her and her son a sign for the worlds. Indeed this, your religion, is one religion, and I am your Lord, so worship Me.
But the people divided their religion among them into sects - each faction, in what [Book] it has, rejoicing -
2:135 - 136, Qur'an
[For] they say, "Be Jews or Christians [so] you will be guided." Say, "Rather, [we follow] the religion of Abraham, inclining toward truth, and he was not of the polytheists." Say, "We have believed in God and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the [twelve] tribes [of Israel] and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are in submission to Him -"
3:2 - 3, Qur'an
[For He is] God - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of existence. He has sent down upon you, the Book in truth, confirming what was before it. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel.
[So] let the People of the Gospel judge by what God has revealed therein. And whoever does not judge by what God has revealed - then it is those who are the defiantly disobedient.
[So] say, "O People of the Scripture, you are [standing] on nothing until you uphold [the law of] the Torah, the Gospel, and what has been revealed to you from your Lord." And that which has been revealed to you [O Muhammad] from your Lord will surely increase many of them in transgression and disbelief. So do not grieve over the disbelieving people.
[But] indeed, among the People of the Scripture are those who believe in God and what was revealed to you and what was revealed to them, [being] humbly submissive to God. They do not exchange the verses of God for a small price. Those will have their reward with their Lord. Indeed, God is swift in account.
God took a covenant from those who were given the Scripture, [saying], "You must make it clear to the people and not conceal it." But they threw it away behind their backs and exchanged it for a small price. And wretched is that which they purchased.
[2 Ezra 12:36 - 38], Torah
[For they said,] "You only have been meet to know this secret of the Highest. Therefore write all these things that you have seen in a book, and hide them; and teach them to the wise of the people, whose hearts you know may comprehend and keep these secrets."
2:159 - 160, Qur'an
[But] indeed, those who conceal what We sent down of clear proofs and guidance after We made it clear for the people in the Scripture - those are cursed by God and cursed by those who curse, except for those who repent and correct themselves and make evident [what they concealed]. Those - I will accept their repentance, and I am the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
[So] O People of the Scripture, there has come to you Our messenger making clear to you much of what you used to conceal of the Scripture and overlooking much. There has come to you from God a light and a clear Book.
[But] they did not appraise God with true appraisal when they said, "God did not reveal to a human being anything." Say, "Who revealed the Scripture that Moses brought as light and guidance to the people? You [Jews] make it into pages, disclosing [some of] it and concealing much. And you were taught that which you knew not - neither you nor your fathers." Say, "God [revealed it]." Then leave them in their [empty] discourse, amusing themselves.
Jeremiah 23:31 - 32, Torah
[God said,] "Behold, I [am] against the prophets, who use their tongues and say, 'He says.' Behold, I [am] against those who prophesy false dreams, and tell them, and cause My people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I did not send them, nor command them, therefore they will not profit this people at all." the Lord says.
Ezekiel 13:6 - 7, Torah
[Rather,] they have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, "The Lord says," and the Lord has not sent them, and they have made [others] hope that they would confirm the word. Have you not seen a vain vision, and have you not spoken a lying divination, whereas you say, "The Lord says [it];" although I have not spoken?
3:77 - 78, Qur'an
[So] indeed, there is among them a party who alter the Scripture with their tongues so you may think it is from the Scripture, but it is not from the Scripture. And they say, "This is from God," but it is not from God. And they speak untruth about God while they know.
Ezekiel 13:8, Torah
Therefore the Lord God thus says; "Because you have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I [am] against you," the Lord God says.
[Book of Enoch 99:2], Torah
[So] woe to you who alter the words of truth, and they distort the eternal law and count themselves as being without sin; they will be trampled underfoot on the ground.
[Book of Enoch 98:15], Torah
[And] woe to you who write lying words, and the words of the impious, for they write their lies so that men may hear and continue their folly. And they will not have peace but will die a sudden death.
So woe to those who write the "scripture" with their own hands, then say, "This is from God," in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn -
22:52 - 54, Qur'an
[For] We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he spoke [or recited], Satan threw into it [some misunderstanding]. But God abolishes that which Satan throws in; then God makes precise His verses. And God is Knowing and Wise. [That is] so He may make what Satan throws in a trial for those within whose hearts is disease and those hard of heart. And indeed, the wrongdoers are in extreme dissension. And so those who were given knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord and [therefore] believe in it, and their hearts humbly submit to it. And indeed is God the Guide of those who have believed to a straight path.
And [thus] We have revealed to you [O Muhammad], the Book in truth, confirming that which preceded it of the Scripture and as a criterion over it. So judge between them by what God has revealed and do not follow their inclinations away from what has come to you of the truth. To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had God willed, He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He intended] to test you in what He has given you; so race to [all that is] good. To God is your return all together, and He will [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.
[So] believe in what I have sent down confirming that which is [already] with you, and be not the first to disbelieve in it. And do not exchange My verses for a small price, and fear [only] Me.
[So] recite to them, the news of him to whom We gave [knowledge of] Our signs -
Acts 18:9 - 11, Gospel
[When] the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, "Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not hold your peace. For I am with you, and no man will set on you to hurt you, for I have many people in this city." And he continued [there] a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
7:175 - 176, Qur'an
But he detached himself from [Our signs]; so Satan pursued him, and he became of the deviators. And if We had willed, We could have elevated him thereby, but he adhered [instead] to the earth and followed his own desire. So his example is like that of the dog: if you chase him, he pants, or if you leave him, he [still] pants. That is the example of the people who denied Our signs. So relate the stories that perhaps they will give thought -
Galatians 1:20, Gospel
[When Paul said,] "Now the things which I write to you, behold, before God, I do not lie.
Romans 2:16, Gospel
[On] the Day [of Judgement,] God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus, the Messiah, according to my Gospel.
2 Timothy 2:8, Gospel
[For] remember that Jesus, the Messiah, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead - according to my Gospel."
*Psalms 118:17 - 18, Torah
[But the Messiah said,] "I will not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. The Lord [God] has chastened me sore, but He has not given me over to death.
Psalms 27:10, Torah
[For] when my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up."
Psalms 41:2, Torah
[And thus] the Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; [and] he will be blessed upon the earth, and You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies -
[For] God said, "O Jesus, indeed I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify you from those who disbelieve and make those who follow you superior to those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then to Me is your return, and I will judge between you concerning that in which you used to differ."
[So] say, "O People of the Scripture, do not exceed limits in your religion beyond the truth and do not follow the inclinations of a people who had gone astray before and misled many and have strayed from the right way -"
1 Corinthians 7:12, Gospel
[Like Paul, who followed his own desire and said, "Now] to the rest I speak, not the Lord, 'If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.'
1 Corinthians 7:25, Gospel
Now concerning virgins, I have no commandment of the Lord, yet I give my judgement, as one who has obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.
1 Corinthians 7:40, Gospel
But she is happier if she so abides, after my judgement, and I think also that I have the Spirit of God -
1 Corinthians 8:2, Gospel
[But] if any man thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he should know.
2 Corinthians 11:1, Gospel
[So] I wish to God you could bear with me a little in [my] folly, and indeed bear with me.
2 Corinthians 11:17, Gospel
[For] that which I speak, I speak [it] not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting."
[So] who is more unjust than one who invents a lie about God or says, "It has been inspired to me," while nothing has been inspired to him, and one who says, "I will reveal like what God revealed." And if you could but see when the wrongdoers are in the overwhelming pangs of death while the angels extend their hands, [saying], "Discharge your souls! Today you will be awarded the punishment of [extreme] humiliation for what you used to say against God other than the truth and [that] you were, toward His verses, being arrogant."
[So] indeed, those who inject deviation into Our verses are not concealed from Us. So, is he who is cast into the Fire better or he who comes secure on the Day of Resurrection? Do whatever you will; indeed, He is Seeing of what you do.
