  1. Yes, I agree with that. Of course, the Old Testament has an enormous amount of civil law to govern the kingdom (in the days of David, Solomon, etc), but Christ says in Matthew 5 that he came to fulfill all of the law. I think the New Testament was never intended to govern a society. It isn't a book of rules or laws that are designed to manage a government etc, rather, it shows what the life of a Christian should look like and how someone can enter into that new life through faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus. A good example is Ephesians 2. 'For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God. Not a result of works, so that no one can boast' We believe that Christ will one day rule in a physical kingdom on this Earth, but for now he is ruling in the hearts of people who have been transformed by his grace. Does that make sense?
  2. Right. Of course in Acts it says that Paul actually did meet Jesus, on the road to Damascus. Acts chapter 9. To your last point, would you agree that there is far more about the life and purpose of Jesus (ie what he taught, how he lived, about his death and resurrection etc) in the gospels than in the Qu'ran? It just seems like there is very little said about Jesus in the Qu'ran, and what is said is significantly different from the gospel accounts. Let me know what you think.
  3. How available is the Bible in Iran? Just curious.
  4. Thanks everyone for replying. It's really interesting to me. The reason that I asked is because I've gotten a variety of responses when talking to my Muslim friends. A lot of them say that they really love Jesus, but they've never read the gospels which are all about Jesus! So I was curious to see what all of you said.
  5. Hello, I'm interested to know how many here have read some or all of the Bible. Which parts? How available is it in your country?
