In future articles, we will consider some other serious difficulties with the idea that the Qur’an represents the revealed words of God.My argument here can be summarized in syllogistic form as follows: First, a note of qualification.
Premise 2 is easy to establish, since the Qur’an and the Bible fundamentally contradict one another.Here’s the full text: The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers—it is to him you shall listen— just as you desired of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, when you said, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God or see this great fire any more, lest I die.’ And the Lord said to me, ‘They are right in what they have spoken.I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers.If, then, the Christian Scriptures are indeed the inspired Word of God, the Muslim Scriptures cannot be, since the Qur’an so fundamentally disagrees with the theology of the Bible.The Qur’an’s Affirmation of the Christian and Jewish Scriptures For the Muslim to reject the conclusion of the argument, at least one of the three Premises must also be rejected.The Islamic religion claims that the Qur’an, revealed allegedly by the angel Gabriel to the prophet Muhammad beginning in 610 A. Such an assertion, however, is highly problematic, and many, many arguments could be given to convincingly refute it.
In this article, I am going to offer one of those reasons, which I perceive to be the most damning.
By “the Bible” I refer to the Old and New Testaments as we possess them today and as possessed by Christians at the time of Muhammad in the seventh century.
Granted, there are textual variants in the New Testament Greek manuscripts, but the core message of the New Testament remains the same — they are thus immaterial to what I’m attempting to establish here.
Confronted with this obvious Qur’anic error about the contents of the Christian Scriptures, Muslim apologists will often attempt to argue that the Christian Scriptures have been corrupted, or that the “Injil” (the Gospel) refers to a special book given only to Jesus (whom the Qur’an calls “Isa”) which has left no record in history.
As we shall see, however, neither the historical record, nor the Qur’an, allows for that possibility.
Verses 1-2 of Deuteronomy 18 clearly reveal who “brothers” refers to: The Levitical priests, all the tribe of Levi, shall have no portion or inheritance with Israel.
