Maybe Paul got it wrong and unfortunately they all followed what Paul said or concluded.<quoted text>
The Christians getting the story wrong doesn't mean the Quran got it right.
John the baptist name in the Quran is Prophet Yahya the son of Zakaria and we as muslims are not sure if he and his father were killed by the Jews or Died normally, Ibn Kathir suggests that Yahya was killed by the Jews and others responded that such info is only mentioned by the people of the books (Christians and Jews).<quoted text>
You're right. I forgot about John the baptist.
we may be happy with the idea of putting false prophets to death, but the Quran doesn't say anything about false prophets, that is a very good question how do we know real prophets from false ones ??? in my opinion it depends on that particular prophets' teachings, saying, acts and the nature of the message itself.<quoted text>
Because they didn't think he was a prophet.
The Quran admits there were many false prophets and Muslims are quite happy with the idea of them being put to death. So the question is how do we tell real prophets from false ones? Of course if there are no real prophets (which is my view) then it's not surprising that so many fall foul of the established priesthood.
Although the life story of Jesus in the Quran is too long to be discussed on this thread, I'll provide verses from the Quran about his life in a different response and maybe we can make a quick comparison between the story of Jesus in the Quran and his story in the Bible.<quoted text>
In the Quran we are told many times that Jesus is not the son of God. What we don't get is his life story. There's more about his mother than him.
If you disagree then please provide verses about his life and miracles.
but the Jews back then were living under Romans authority, hence they weren't applying the teachings of the Old Testament, I assume the Romans were threatened and didn't want to lose the authority, after all Jesus said that he came to confirm the old testament teachings and for sure didn't come to abolish them, However, the Jews from the beginning tried to deceive Jesus but since he was also a Jew he was as smart as they were, if we take in consideration the story of the scribes and the Pharisees bringing a woman to Jesus (PBUH) and claimed that she committed adultery, Jesus only had two choices its whether he stone that woman to death or set her free, so if he stoned her to death he might get killed by the Romans or at least go to prison ( remember the punishment of committing adultery wasn't to be stoned to death under the Roman authority), and if he set her free Jews would say he is not a real prophet because he is clearly not following the teachings of the Torah (OT), according to the Bible While Jesus Remains seated he bends over and writes with his finger on the ground, He straightened up, and said to them,He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her, Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground." they left one after the another till Jesus remained alone with the woman, anyways my point is that those people were testing Jesus in order to have grounds for accusing Him, on the other Hand we as Muslims would say "hold on a second if that Woman was caught on the act of committing adultery then where is the man ?!!! and where are the witnesses ??! it was only a trick but Jesus (PBUH) knew how to get out of it.<quoted text>
About 2014 years ago a baby was born, possible to a carpenter.
About 33 years later he was an itinerant preacher, preaching his own views on Judaism and the temple priests.
He cause enough trouble and preached enough heretical ideas for the Priests to have him killed by the Romans.
