Bible vs Quran: Similarities And Differences



Bible and Quran are in full agreement refuting the divinity of Jesus. Really strange that how Christians entered the doctrine of Trinity in their creed. Bible Book of Numbers 23:19 and Hosea 11:9 clearly show that God is not man, while Jesus is called a man many times in the Bible as in Matthew 16:27, John 8:40, Acts 2:22, Acts 17:31 and Timothy 2:5. Bible also says that God is not a son of man as in Numbers 23:19(See KJV) while Jesus is often called a son of man as in Matthew 12:40, Matthew 16:27, Mark 2:10 and John 5:27. In Quran Surah Maidah 5:75, to assert that Jesus is not divine, God says that both Jesus and her mother used to eat which is a humanly trait. There are instances in bible pointing to the fact that Jesus used to eat, sleep and pray to God and also tempted by Satan/devil as is clear by Mark 14:17-18, Matthew 8:24-25, Luke 5:16 and Mark 1:13 respectively.

Study of Bible tells that Jesus never claimed divinity. There is not a single clear statement in the whole Bible where Jesus himself says that he is God people should worship him. In fact he preached quite the contrary as you can see in the below box that in John 14:28. John 10:29, Matthew 12:28 and Acts 2:22 he is clearly saying that that God is greater than Jesus and explained his miracles as the power of the One True God. If Christians say that God(Father) is greater than the son but still Jesus the son is also God then they should again see the above section regarding Oneness of God where it is clearly mentioned that “I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.” Jesus Refuted even the farthest claim of his Divinity as in Matthew 19: 16-17

“Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?” “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

Jesus said that the path to salvation was through keeping the commandments and did not say that people should believe in Jesus as God.

Further I put the last verse John 20:17 in Bible section(Box) below to refute any chance of claim that might arise in naive minds that why everywhere in Bible God is called as Father (Thus He must be a father of Jesus). Bible is full of such instances where God is called “Father” of other persons, People and nations as well. Also as you can see in John 20:17 where Jesus is saying “I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God”. Old Testament also has many such instances like Psalm 2:7 “I will proclaim the decree of the Lord: He said to me, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father.” and as in Isaiah 64:8 ” Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”

Thus Father is actually a metaphor and not a proper name for God but one of many titles by which Jews speak of regarding God in a sense that God is “Father” to all humans because he created the world and in that sense “fathered” the world. Similarly expression “Son of God” only meant ‘Servant of God’; one who is close and dear to God as a son is to his father and cannot be accepted literally because in Bible, God addresses many of his chosen servants as ‘son’ and ‘sons as in Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers,for they will be called sons of God.” and in Deuteronomy 14:1 “You are the children of the Lord your God.”
