Proof Please ?
And all the things you could say about Jesus and the bible could just as easily be said about Muhammed and the Koran . (Or any other prophet and their holy book) .
We could just as easily be taking to a guy called "EirannachforAllah" or "EirannachforKrishna"
You would have to look into it yourself. A starting point would be to take a look at the fulfilled prophecies in the bible.
Another area to look into would be the scientific facts it contains. For example, the bible talked about the "paths of the seas" long before ocenagraphers knew aything about ocean currents. In fact, Matthew Maury, who is considered the father of ocenagrapher noticed the expression "paths in the sea" in Psalm 8:8 and declared," If God said there are paths in the sea, I am going to find them." Maury used the bible as a guide to a scientific discovery.
I could also mention the principle of quarantine mentioned in Leviticus 13 and 14. If people used these guiding principles, millions upon millions of lives would have been saved during epidemics such as the Black plague. I could go about the earh's free float in space, mentioned in Job 26:7 at a time when the scientific world believed that the earth sat on a large animal or a giant.
By the way the attributes of Allah and the god of the bible are very different indeed so I couldn't possibly stand for both.
