We recognize 3 different type of evidences in the Bible, We found 1 type of evidence where we recognize as a word of God. For example:
'I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.
So now I’m asking anybody weather Jew or Christian who is this I? They says “God” and I can also see this is God talking. Is not Moses, Moses didn’t say I will raise them up, God speaking through Moses, On the very face of it we can see it is God talking, we recognize no disputes!
In the book of Isaiah we read…
For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me.
So who’s talking? “God” although we didn’t see God we didn’t hear him but the words that are uttered by Isaiah, he was like a mouth piece of God. This is God talking through him.
So now we can recognize quiet easily the word of God in the Bible.
Than there is second type of evidence in the bible which we recognize as the word of the prophet of God. Like jesus!
“You have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”
That is the word of the prophet of God. Than there is a 3rd type of evidence where we read…
He was returning to the city, He became hungry. Seeing a lone fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it except leaves.
These are the word of eye witness or a hear witness or a person writing from hear say. Than there is another type of evidence in the Bible which we can’t attribute to God, a prophet or even to a saint person and there are other type which no decent man can read out to his mother, sister or daughter!
Now in the house of Islam we also have something like this, we have the word of God, we have the word of the prophet, we have the word of historian and we also have our fairy tales but they are not in “One Book”.
The word of God is in the Quran and it is complete by itself, the word of the prophets is in hadiths, the word of historian we have our ibne e talmiya, imam ghazali and so on and on. Than we have our arabian nights which the arabs before Islam filthy dirty stories but that’s in a separate book.
The word of God is separate, The word of prophets is separate, The word of historians is separate.
Where is in your case every thing is in “One Book”!
That’s the difference. So now if you show me some lunacy there and tells me you accept this as the word of God? I say no. But you believe in the bible? I say look there are things that I have no hesitation in accepting.
The 10 Commandments. No hesitation in accepting as God’s word. Whatever matches with Quran that portion we don not mind to accept it as the word of God but that does not mean that the whole of the bible is the word of God.
