Stuart Kerr to Religions of Jesus, Jews, Muslims & Christians

People of the Book:
Muslims believe that God had previously revealed Himself to the earlier prophets of the Jews and Christians, such as Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. Muslims therefore accept the teachings of both the Jewish Torah and the Christian Gospels. They believe that Islam is the perfection of the religion revealed first to Abraham (who is considered the first Muslim) and later to other prophets. They call Jews and Christians the “People of the Book” and allow them to practice their own religions.
Muslims believe that Muhammad is the “seal of the prophecy,” by which they mean that he is the last in the series of prophets God sent to mankind. The Muslim scripture, the Koran, is taken to represent the completion of these scriptures, and to synthesize them as God’s true, final, and eternal message to humanity.
