29:12 Of all - Of all, your prophets. As a book - In which no man can read, while it is sealed up, as books then sometimes were, being made in the form of rolls. Delivered - Unsealed and opened.

Let the Christians explain to us this verse and whom it refers to. Because we've similar verse in the Quran that stated the same thing.

First of all the bible was the book of Jesus, and when God sent him to Israel. So how ever the Christian leaders tried to hide the truth. They canít because they are human pin and they are powerless because God, the creator is more powerful. There is no one like a God from the heaven to the earth. So this chapter is truth I believe anyone who wants to know the truth can see there is a real God which is powerful an merciful.

This verse is the prophecy of the coming of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as that what typically happened to prophet Muhammad when the arch-angel Gabriel first come to him and ordered him to read but the prophet said I am not learned then the angel prompt him. Please believe in Islam before the Judgement Day!!!
