The Quran claims about the cross:
157And because of their saying (in boast), “We killed Messiah ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah,” — but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but the resemblance of ‘Iesa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man), and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely; they killed him not [i.e. ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)]: 158But Allah raised him [‘Iesa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) unto Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allah is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise.An-Nisa 4:157-158, Muhsin Khan
This Quranic claim did not happen in history.
Jesus taught about the cross:
Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!”Matthew 20:17-19
Jesus’ disciples taught that Jesus died on the cross and rose again from the dead.
One of Jesus’ foremost disciples was Peter. Jesus appeared to Peter after He died and rose again. Peter testifies to Jesus’ death and resurrection,
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.1 Peter 1:3
Another disciple, John, testified to Jesus’ death and resurrection,
This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.1 John 3:16
What happened in history is important for what will happen in your history, because you and I will die.
Isn’t it obvious that Jesus’ death and resurrection are historical truths? Isn’t the Bible clearer on this issue than the Qur’an? Isn’t this better news than the Qur’an, since Muhammad is dead and buried?
Believe in Jesus, and be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins, and you can have certainty that you will inherit eternal life. Jesus said,
I told you that you would die in your sins; if you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins.”John 8:24
