The Bible and the Qur’an

Jews, Christians, Muslims, and Mormons all have a holy book that plays a very important role in their faith.  But the role of the Bible is different than the role of other holy books:

Jews might say, the Master of the Universe gave us the Torah.

Mormons say, God gave us the book of Mormon.

Muslims say, Allah gave his very words in the Holy Qur’an.

Christians say, God gave his son.

There is a difference.  The Bible points beyond itself to God who involved himself in human history and human life.
