Islamic Fact, Chapter 29 - Volume 13

Jesus of the Qur’an: No mention of Jesus drinking or making intoxicants, instead he is held in honor in this world (Qur’an 3:45). There is some benefit in wine but the sin is greater than the benefit (Qur’an 2:219).
Jesus of the Bible: Jesus drank the intoxicant wine (John 19:30). Jesus changed water into wine (John 2:7-9). Jesus said wine is good (Luke 5:38-39). Jesus is called a “drunk” (Luke 7:34). John the Baptist was so holy that he did not drink wine (Luke 1:15, 7:33). Jesus said no one is greater than John the Baptist (Luke 7:28). If you want to be holy you cannot drink intoxicants (Numbers 6:1-4). The Biblical Jesus is not holy!
