There are several concepts in the New Testament that differ with those in the Quran. Muslims revere Jesus as a great prophet, but do not consider Him God. Muhammad taught that Jesus was not crucified, but was taken to heaven-and a substitute appeared to die in His place (Sura 4:157). This is strikingly similar to some Gnostic teachings Muhammad would have encountered in his travels.

The Quran affirms Christ's virgin birth, but in doing so appears to confuse the identities of Miriam, the sister of Moses, and Mary the mother of Jesus. In Sura 19:28, Christ's mother is called the "sister of Aaron"a phrase which everywhere else in the Quran refers to Miriam. In response, Muslims suggest that "sister of Aaron" is a generic term meaning "virtuous woman" even though such a usage occurs nowhere else in the Quran.

Depending upon which Christian and Muslim sect you are discussing, the Quran teaches the 'immortal soul' which is unscriptural and Hellenistic in origins. Muslims believe in a vengeful God who tortures souls in fire continually by giving them new skin as soon as the old is consumed. The rewards for some are multiple virgin women versus the New Testaments death is akin to sleeping and all who repent and accept Jesus after the Judgement become sons and daughters or co-equals in the God Family which will come to Earth (Rev. 21).

The Shia branch believes the 'Mahdi' will come to cause World War and destruction in order to enter the new world. The NT teaches the 2nd Coming of Jesus to put an end to World War and establish the Kingdom of God on Earth.

There are other differences between the two.

What are the disadvantages of only reading the Old Testament?

This question can be understood in terms of reading only the Old Testament but not the New Testament, or in terms of reading only the Old Testament but nothing else that could contradict or challenge the stories and traditions portrayed in the Old Testament. For a Jew, there is no particular disadvantage in reading the Old Testament but not the New Testament, as the New Testament is not relevant to his religion. For a Christian, the disadvantage is that the books most important to his faith are in the New Testament. Anyone reading only the Old Testament and not what is now known about the history of the times and biblical scholarship on the Old Testament, the disadvantage is that the reader must take everything literally and can not have an informed view as to how literally the Old Testament should be read.

No.The Old Testament was written many hundreds of years before Christ and the new Testament was written in the first century. The Quran was't conceived nor written until several centuries after Christ and therefore it would be impossible for any mention or sign of the Quran to be found in the Bible.Additionally:But there are signs of the Bible in the Q'ran... the passages that were lifted out of the Bible and copied there.
