Qur'an to Jesus in 3 Hops

How the Qur'an confirms the authenicity of the gospels

I often wonder how different my beliefs would be if I grew up under different circumstances. Am I a Christian only because I was raised by Christians? What if I had been raised by atheists or by Hindus? Would I come to the same conclusions that I arrive at now?  

I have even made attempts in the past to clear my slate (as best I can) and start from scratch. It is important to examine our own beliefs. Why do I believe in God? Why do I believe Jesus is God? If I start over, would I re-assemble the same construct that I have now or would it look different? While we are (admittedly) incapable of entirely setting aside beliefs, one can attempt to imagine different starting points in life and explore the reasoning premised on the beliefs we hold. Imagine that you were a Muslim (are perhaps you are). If the Qur'an alone were your starting point then where would it guide you?

I believe in divine revelation, but I do not accept every sacred book that claims to be such, mainly because they are rationally exclusive.  But I don’t just dismiss them out-of-hand, blindly, I reject them for specific reasons.  Even though they claim to be divine revelation, I put them all through the same grid of reason which is necessary to identify something as revelation. 

When God Walked Among Us

The Incarnation is One of the Unique Claims of Christianity

One of the unique claims about Christianity is that we have a God who walked among us for a time as a human being. Jesus came to earth as an infant and had the same experiences that we humans do. From birth to death, He shared in the everyday events of life. He went to a wedding and celebrated with the bride and groom (John 2:1-10). Working with his earthly father in a carpenter shop, he experienced the pleasure of work done well. He experienced the pain of loss, when his good friend Lazarus died (John 11:11-15; 32-44). He experienced the closeness of friendship with His disciples. And ultimately, Jesus experienced the pain and isolation of betrayal and death (Mark 14:43-50; 15:34).
