090 - Summary of the Correlation for Adam Between the Bible and the Koran
If we summarize this correlating list about Adam in the Bible and the Koran, then we get the following sobering result:
a) The Koran OMITTED 58 verses
from the Bible-verses about Adam.
b) The Koran ADDED 41 non-biblical verses
to the Bible-verses about Adam.
c) The Koran CHANGED 48 verses
of the Bible-verses about Adam
d) The Koran QUOTED 0 verses
from the Bible-verses about Adam. This means that not one single Bible verse about Adam was left unchanged, when the Koran incorporated it into its own account about Adam.
e) The main verses of the Koran that are RECOGNIZABLE as being rooted in the Bible are just 22 Koran verses: Suras al-Baqara 2:30-22 and 35-36 -- al-Ma'ida 5:27-32 -- al-A'raf 7:19-20 and 22-26 -- Ta Ha 20:115+120+123. However, all these 22 verses in the Koran have significant changes, when compared to their correlated 48 verses in the Bible.
In Deuteronomy 12:32 we read: “The whole word, which I command you, you shall preserve, in order to do it. You shall add nothing to it or take anything from it.” The Koran in its passages about Adam seems to have done exactly what the Bible forbids: Instead of adding nothing to it, the Koran did add 41 non-biblical verses; and instead of not taking anything from it, the Koran did omit 58 Bible verses. In addition, the Koran changed all the remaining 48 Bible verses about Adam. This shows you that the Koran did not preserve, what the LORD God commanded Moses and his people, in order to do it. Always remember this fact, when studying or discussing the Koran in a biblical perspective.
