Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (Jn 14:6)

Qur’anic Statements about Jesus Not Backed by the Bible:
He was only human and had no divine nature (4:171)
He was a created being and not the Word of God (4:171)
He was a messenger for Israel only and not the Light of the World (3:49-51)
He was raised to Allah rather than died on the cross (3:55)

What’s Missing in the Qur’an:
Jesus’ connection to the temple (Matt 21:12), the Torah (Jn 1:17), and the kingdom of God. (Lk 9:62)
Jesus’ messages that address reconciliation (Rom 5:10), forgiveness (Eph 1:7), redemption (Rom 3:24), covenant (Matt 26:28).
Jesus speaking of God as His Father. (Jn 6:32)
He is not called Immanuel (Matt 1:23), the Lamb of God (Jn 1:29), Son of God (Mk 1:1), Son of Man (Jn 3:14).
Jesus died on the cross. (1Thes 4:14)
Jesus rose from the dead. (1Cor 15:3-4)
