Allah and Elohim - Are they the same God? Part - 5

Whole Bible tells us that the God of the Bible is omniscient and He is all knowing.  He knows the things which are going to come and the things which were in the past and nothing is hidden from Him.  God of the Bible foretold the things of the future and recalled the past.  But contrary to it Allah is not all-knowing.  Let us look from the Quran what Allah says:

Al-Imran (The Family of Imran)

Sura 3:3. It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong).

Here in this Quranic verse it says that Quran is the confirmation of the Law of Moses and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Let us go back to the first five books of Moses which contains the Laws given to Moses and let us analyze it whether it is conforming to Quran or not.  In the first five books of the Bible we read about the fall of human and their separation from God and also the punishment of God which came on them. Then again we read about the sacrifice and blood atonement through which a person can get the forgiveness of their sins. God gave the Law to Moses and showed how a person can get the forgiveness of their sins. Leviticus 5:5-6,  "And it shall be, when he is guilty in any of these matters, that he shall confess that he has sinned in that thing; and he shall bring his trespass offering to the LORD for his sin which he has committed, a female from the flock, a lamb or a kid of the goats as a sin offering. So the priest shall make atonement for him concerning his sin."

And also the book of Leviticus says in Leviticus 17:11, "For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul."

So we can see that God gave the Law to Moses which told how to sanctify a person or how to get the forgiveness of their sins. 

Now come with me to the Gospels where Jesus said in Matthew 26:28,  "For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."  And also Jesus said in Matthew 5:17,  "Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill."

And the Gospels say that Jesus is the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world as we read in John 1:29, "The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!"

Yes, from Genesis to Revelation the Bible says about the salvation of God through blood atonement.  But when we come to Quran we can see that Quran does not support the blood atonement but it says about good deeds and charity as we read in  

Al-Baqara (The Cow)

2:277 Those who believe, and do deeds of righteousness, and establish regular prayers and regular charity, will have their reward with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

So we can see in the Quran that a person is earning his/her salvation by their good works or by giving to charity or by doing religious rituals.  If Quran was a confirmation of the previous scriptures then it should show similarity with Torah and Gospels and if Allah is the same God of the Bible then he should have given the same message of the Bible as the Bible says in Isaiah 64:6, "But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away." This verse makes it clear that our good works are nothing but filthy rags before God so we can not earn our salvation by our good works but if we want to be saved we need a Savior who is God Himself, who is Jesus Himself.  Jesus gave Himself for our salvation on the cruel cross and shed His precious blood to save us.  He paid the price for our salvation in full.

Son of God :

Again we read in Quran like this:

Isra', The Night Journey, Children Of Israel
17:111 Say: "Praise be to Allah, who begets no son, and has no partner in (His) dominion: Nor (needs) He any to protect Him from humiliation: yea, magnify Him for His greatness and glory!"

19:88 They say: "((Allah)) Most Gracious has begotten a son!"
19:91 That they should invoke a son for ((Allah)) Most Gracious.

19:92 For it is not consonant with the majesty of ((Allah)) Most Gracious that He should beget a son

Well, let us examine what the meaning of Begotten is? "The only begotten Son" (monogenes, Greek.) means "one of a kind," "unique," "without precedent." Some manuscripts read "the only begotten God" (NU God). The abrupt statement about a "begotten Son" or "God" is seen by some as an intimation of the virgin birth. The Logos, who is the Son, "has declared" God. He is indeed the interpreter, the exegete (exegesato, Gk.), leading out and explaining God to man.

The Bible tells us that God is Spirit.  He is not a physical being and has no physical son. But it seems that Allah has taken it in the wrong way.  While God showed Himself as father to Israelites as we read in Deu 32:18  Of the Rock who begot you, you are unmindful, And have forgotten the God who fathered you. David calls God his father. Isaiah said that God is Everlasting father in Isahiah 9:6

Psalms 2:7,  "I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, 'You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.

Psalms 2:12, "Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him."

These verses strongly say about the eternal Sonship of Messiah and His divinity.   And it makes it clear that unless we kiss the son(Jesus Christ) we perish but those who put their trust in Him they are blessed.

Yes, God has given His only begotten son so that we may not perish but get eternal life through Him.  And again it proves that God of the Bible and Allah is not same but they are totally different and their messages are totally different and contradictory to each other.
