God Gave Jesus the Gospel in which was Guidance and Light

So Let the People of the Gospel Judge by what God has Revealed Therein

5:46, Qur'an
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.

3:39, Qur'an
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.

6:85, Qur'an
[So indeed,] Zacharias and John and Jesus and Elijah - and all were of the righteous.

66:12, Qur'an
And [remember] Mary, the daughter of 'Imran, who guarded her chastity, so We breathed into her through Our Spirit, and she believed in the words of her Lord and His Scriptures and was of the devoutly obedient.

4:136, Qur'an
[So] O you who have believed, believe in God and His messenger and the Book that He sent down upon His messenger and the Scripture which He sent down before.  And whoever disbelieves in God, His books, His messengers, His angels, and the Last Day has certainly gone far astray.

3:3, Qur'an
[For] He has sent down upon you, the Book in truth, confirming what was before it.  And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel.

5:47, Qur'an
[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.


There is Among them a Party who Alter the Scripture with their Tongues or Conceal it

So there has Come Our Messenger Making Clear Much of what you used to Conceal and Overlooking Much

3:187, Qur'an
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 14:6], Torah
[For they said,] "These words will you declare, and these will you hide."

2:174, Qur'an
[But] they who conceal what God has sent down of the Book and exchange it for a small price - those consume not into their bellies except the Fire.  And God will not speak to them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He purify them.  And they will have a painful punishment.

3:77 - 78, Qur'an
Indeed, those who exchange the covenant of God and their [own] oaths for a small price will have no share in the Hereafter, and God will not speak to them or look at them on the Day of Resurrection, nor will He purify them; and they will have a painful punishment.  And 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 13:6 - 7, Torah
[For] 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?

22:52 - 54, Qur'an
[Thus] 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.

5:15 - 16, Qur'an
[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, by which God guides those who pursue His pleasure to the ways of peace and brings them out from darknesses into the light, by His permission, and guides them to a straight path.

5:48, Qur'an
And [so] 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.


The News of him to whom God Gave Knowledge, but he Followed his Own Desires

Paul Said, "I Think that I have the Spirit of God," and "Jesus was Raised from the Dead According to my Gospel"

7:175 - 176, Qur'an
[So] recite to them, the news of him to whom We gave [knowledge of] Our signs, but he detached himself from them; 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.

Acts 22:14 - 15, Gospel
And [so mention when Ananias] said, 'The God of our fathers has chosen you [Paul], that you should know His will, and see that Just One, and should hear the voice of his mouth.  For you will be his witness to all men of what you have seen and heard."

Galatians 1:20, Gospel
[So Paul said,] "Now the things which I write to you, behold, before God, I do not lie.

2 Timothy 2:8, Gospel
[So] remember that Jesus, the Messiah, of the seed of David, was raised from the dead - according to my Gospel."

4:157 - 158, Qur'an
[But We cursed them for] their saying, "Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of God."  And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them.  And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it.  They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption.  And they did not kill him, for certain.  Rather, God raised him to Himself.  And ever is God Almighty and Most Wise.

Romans 2:16, Gospel
[But Paul continued, "And on] the Day [of Judgement,] God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus, the Messiah, according to my Gospel."

28:88, Qur'an
[But] do not invoke with God another deity.  There is no deity except Him.  Everything will be destroyed except His Face.  His is the judgement, and to Him you will be returned.

1 Corinthians 7:25, Gospel
[Paul continued,] "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 7:8:2, 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."

6:93, Qur'an
[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."

41:40, Qur'an
[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.
