Which account of Jesus Christ is correct? Is the New Testament account of Jesus reliable?
Muslims believe that Muhammad was mankind's last prophet who received the final revelation of Allah verbally and
recorded as the Quran (632 A.D.). According to the Quran, it was the last of three previous revelations: Tawrat by the prophet
Moses, Zabur by the prophet David, and Injil by the prophet Jesus.
But the Quran is the product of a single author with no corroborating manuscript or historical evidence of its
Mormons / Latter Day Saints believe that an angel led Joseph Smith to inscribed golden plates which he translated to
form the Book of Mormon (1830). They believe that the Book of Mormon is another witness of Jesus Christ and clarifies the Bible.
But the Book of Mormon, like the Quran, is the product of a single author with no corroborating manuscript or historical
evidence of its truthfulness. The golden plates were purportedly taken back to heaven for safekeeping, and the Book of Mormon's story of an
ancient Semite civilization that gave rise to North America's native Americans lacks archaeological, anthropological and genetic evidence.
In comparison to all religious books, the Bible remains the best and only source for information about Jesus Christ:
- It is the oldest source and written over a span of 1,500 years.
- The ancient manuscripts from which translations are based are well attested and continue to be available for study
- Translations are made by bona fide and well known Greek and Hebrew scholars.
- Archaeology attests to the historicity of the gospel accounts and the authors of the Bible.
