^Jesus Christ is Lord of creation and Christians are called to bear witness to his glory and faithfulness in all things. Yet in recent years, science and Christianity have often been considered two distinct types of knowledge, each self-contained-the truth of one doing nothing to the validity of the other. We are now living in a time of transition from a modern to a postmodern cultural context, and how exactly Christianity and science will influence and be influenced by this transition is yet to be seen. ^In this transition, the divide that seemed to exist between these two branches of knowledge appears to be crumbling and an apparent "war" between science and Christian theology has started-with many on both sides insisting that a high regard of the one automatically translates into a low regard for the other. More and more the developments of science appear to challenge the basic beliefs of Christianity. Has science gotten off track? Does Christian theology need to be corrected b

Dear Muslim friend, do you believe the words and teachings of your holy Qur'an? Or have you unknowingly rejected the testimony of the Qur'an about Jesus (or Isa) and about the prior revelations that God sent to bear witness to him? If you trust the Qur'an and have an open and prayerful heart, you may be surprised at what it says about the prophet Jesus. The Testimony of the Qur'anThe Qur'an declares many wonderful things about the prophet Jesus. Three surahs (or chapters) are named after references to him, and he is spoken of in fifteen surahs (ninety-three verses) altogether, more than any other person in the entire Qur'an.The Qur'an teaches that Jesus healed the sick and raised the dead (3:49; 5:113), was born of the virgin Mary (3:45-47; 23:50; 19:16-22), brought the gospel to the Jewish people (3:49-51; 13:38), and was an apostle and prophet of God (3:49; 6:85-90). In the Qur'an, Jesus alone is supported by the Holy Spirit (2:87, 253). Jesus alone is called "the Word of God" (3:45; 4:171) and "the Messiah" ("Christ," 3:45; 4:157, 172, etc). Yet the Qur'an is not the only testimony to Jesus. Nor is it the primary one. The Qur'an repeatedly states that God sent prior revelations to the Jews and the Christians: The Torah (Taurat), the Psalms (Zabur), and the Gospel (Injil). Have you ever read what these prophetic words say about Jesus? The Qur'an's Testimony to God's Prior RevelationsBut you may wonder if the Jewish and Christian Scriptures are really trustworthy revelations from God.Perhaps you have been told that they have been corrupted or lost. What does the Qur'an say about this? God Sent Other Scriptures Prior to the Qur'anIn numerous places the Qur'an testifies that God gave the Jews and the Christians revelations in the past: "He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind" (3:3-4); "Say, 'We believe in the revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you'" (29:46; cf. 6:89; 2:136; 5:46-47; 7:157). These Revelations Existed During Muhammad's TimeIn other passages the Qur'an is clear that these Scriptures existed during Muhammad's lifetime: "Say 'O People of the Book! Ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord'" (5:68; cf. 4:136; 10:94 3:93; 5:46, 59, 68-69).It would be impossible for Christians and Jews (the People of the Book) to "stand fast" by these revelations unless they were still in their possession at that time. Many ancient copies exist of both the Torah and the Gospel that are dated centuries before Muhammad. These are entirely consistent with the books known in the Bible as the Old and New Testament. The Qur'an Was Sent to Confirm & Guard These ScripturesOther verses claim that the Qur'an was sent to "confirm" the scriptures that God had sent beforehand: "This is a Book which We have sent down, bringing blessings, and confirming (the revelations) which came before it" (6:92, emphasis added; cf., 2:40-41, 89, 91; 3:3).The Qur'an also claims it "guards" these scriptures (5:51). If, however, the Bible had become so thoroughly corrupted that it was no longer capable of guiding the people, as many Muslims now assert, how could the Qur'an be said to "confirm" and "guard" it? God's Revelations Can Never Be Changed by MenAccording to the Qur'an it is impossible for anyone to change or corrupt God's revelations: "There is none that can alter the words (and decrees) of God" (6:34; cf. 6:115); "No change can there be in the words of God"
