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.

Both the Quaran and and the Bible contain the Old Testament, these are common to both religious texts. The New Testament is contained in The Bible, but not the Quran. In Islam, Jesus is considered a Prophet, as are Moses, Abraham and Mohammed (PBUH).

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.

I don't really know but slavery was popular during the time it was written so it probably supports slavery, just like the old testament and the new testament.

Muslims believe that originally all the books were sent by Allah. The old Testament came first but was corrupted by humans and so the new Testament was sent. Then, that too was edited and so a third book Quran was sent which has remained preserved in its original form till this day.

All of the books of the New Testament go to make up the heart of this book. There is no book of more importance than another. If one understands the scriptures the New Testament is the heart of the bible.

There are bassically 2 parts of the bible. The old testament and new testament . The old testament is about a collection of people and prophets preaching about god speaking to israel and fortelling about the messiah. The new testament is a collection of books telling about jesus christs misdion and relating to that. It is a good book but also give the quran a chance it has all this and more. :)

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.

No. The question becomes, "do Jews believe the New Testament?" Just as you would read the religious books of another faith, it becomes a matter of if you believe it. Jews don't believe that the New Testament is scripture.

No. Before his death, Jesus promised that after he left, the Spirit of Truth would come to the apostles and guide them "into all the truth" (John 16:13). Thus, the teachings of the apostles recorded in the later New Testament books are really Jesus' teachings.

Epistles. The majority of New Testament writings are epistles of Paul, James, Peter, John, and Jude with the anonymous Hebrews.

It is called the New Testament because it was written after the Old Testament and tells of the new "testament" which means covenant or agreement between God and man. The old testament or covenant with Moses was fulfilled in Christ and this is the story of the New testament.

In short, the old testament is the new testament concealed, the new is the old revealed. The old testament is before the human birth of Jesus, the new is during and after.
