I have always wanted to ask this question, and alway's had other questions: that needed immediate answers, but now: I will finally ask Matters regarding these question. I believe that both the Bible and the holy Quran were inspired by God, so there are no contradiction's, that is they both came from the same source. So regarding my question; as a Christian: I honestly believe that Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross, that is; he died and Ressurected after the three day's, "the Gospels proclaim such remark's", but when one reads the holy Quran; one finds otherwise:

"The issue of the crucifixion, death and resurrection of Jesus (Isa) is rejected by most Muslims, but similar to Christians they believe that Jesus ascended to heaven and will, according to hadith, return before the end of time. Muslims believe Jesus was not crucified, but was raised bodily to heaven by God".

and here is what the Quran says:

"That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-
May, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise;-

— Qur'an, surah 4 (An-Nisa) ayat 157–158"

And these is what many Christian's believe about the death of Jesus Christ:

"
The crucifixion of Jesus occurred in 1st-century Judea, most likely between AD 30 and 33. Jesus' crucifixion is described in the four canonical gospels, referred to in the New Testament epistles, attested to by other ancient sources, and is established as a historical event confirmed by non-Christian sources, although there is no consensus among historians on the exact details.

According to the canonical gospels, Jesus was arrested and tried by the Sanhedrin, and then sentenced by Pontius Pilate to be scourged, and finally crucified by the Romans. Jesus was stripped of his clothing and offered wine mixed with myrrh or gall to drink after saying I am thirsty. He was then hung between two convicted thieves and, according to the Gospel of Mark, died some six hours later. During this time, the soldiers affixed a sign to the top of the cross stating "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews" which, according to the Gospel of John, was written in three languages. They then divided his garments among themselves and cast lots for his seamless robe, according to the Gospel of John. According to the Gospel of John after Jesus' death, one soldier pierced his side with a spear to be certain that he had died, then blood and water gushed from the wound. The Bible describes seven statements that Jesus made while he was on the cross, as well as several supernatural events that occurred.

Collectively referred to as the Passion, Jesus' suffering and redemptive death by crucifixion are the central aspects of Christian theology concerning the doctrines of salvation and atonement".

So for instance in the Gospels, the Bible say's these:

Mathew 27:1-54

"
Early in the morning, all the chief priests and the elders of the people made their plans how to have Jesus executed. 2 So they bound him, led him away and handed him over to Pilate the governor. 3 When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders. 4 “I have sinned,” he said, “for I have betrayed innocent blood.” “What is that to us?” they replied. “That’s your responsibility.” 5 So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. 6 The chief priests picked up the coins and said, “It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money.” 7 So they decided to use the money to buy the potter’s field as a burial place for foreigners. 8 That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day. 9 Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: “They took the thirty pieces of silver, the price set on him by the people of Israel, 10 and they used them to buy the potter’s field, as the Lord commanded me.” 11 Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?” “You have said so,” Jesus replied. 12 When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer. 13 Then Pilate asked him, “Don’t you hear the testimony they are bringing against you?” 14 But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge—to the great amazement of the governor. 15 Now it was the governor’s custom at the festival to release a prisoner chosen by the crowd. 16 At that time they had a well-known prisoner whose name was Jesus Barabbas. 17 So when the crowd had gathered, Pilate asked them, “Which one do you want me to release to you: Jesus Barabbas, or Jesus who is called the Messiah?” 18 For he knew it was out of self-interest that they had handed Jesus over to him. 19 While Pilate was sitting on the judge’s seat, his wife sent him this message: “Don’t have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him.” 20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus executed. 21 “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?” asked the governor. “Barabbas,” they answered. 22 “What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called the Messiah?” Pilate asked. They all answered, “Crucify him!” 23 “Why? What crime has he committed?” asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, “Crucify him!” 24 When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I am innocent of this man’s blood,” he said. “It is your responsibility!” 25 All the people answered, “His blood is on us and on our children!” 26 Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. 27 Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. 28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, 29 and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. 30 They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. 31 After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him. 32 As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross. 33 They came to a place called Golgotha (which means “the place of the skull”). 34 There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. 35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. 36 And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. 37 Above his head they placed the written charge against him: THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 38 Two rebels were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. 39 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads 40 and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!” 41 In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. 42 “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the king of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. 43 He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’ ” 44 In the same way the rebels who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him. 45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. 46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli,lemasabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). 47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.” 48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 49 The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.” 50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. 51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people. 54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”.

So why is there a contradiction about a man's life, if both scriptures came from the same source?, And what can we learn from this?.

There is a public doctrine in Islam, and an esoteric Muslim doctrine known as Sufism.

The Sufi initiates always recognized the light of Tawhid, the divine unity, can express in many ways. Elohim is the army of the voice: many masters, one universal consciousness.

The unity can express as Kether (supremacy), Chokmah (wisdom), and Binah (intelligence). There is no division there, since they are three aspects of one divinity.
In the name of Allah (Kether), the infinitely Compassionate (Chokmah), the Merciful (Chesed).
Praise be to God (Binah), Lord of all the worlds.
The Compassionate (Chokmah), the Merciful (Chesed). Ruler on the Day of Reckoning (Geburah).
You alone do we worship, and You alone do we ask for help (as Tiphereth, the human soul).
Guide us on the straight path (of Yesod),
the path of those who have received your grace (by controlling the mind and heart, Netzach and Hod);
not the path of those who have brought down wrath, nor of those who wander astray (in Malkuth).
Amen.
To understand the Qur’an, one must be a Kabbalist and alchemist.

When people do not know Kabbalah and alchemy, they enter into confusion.

Just as the Buddhists rejected the doctrine of Atman (self) in order to clarify the teachings of anatman (no self), so did the original Muslims seek to clarify the teachings of unity against the fanaticism and dogmatism of the Christians who thought the trinity signifies three literal people.
He it is Who has sent down the Book upon thee; therein are signs [verses] determined; they are the Mother of the Book [the Tarot, the High Priestess], and others symbolic. As for those whose hearts are given to swerving, they follow that of it which is symbolic, seeking temptation and seeking its interpretation. And none know its interpretation save God and those firmly rooted in knowledge (marifah in Arabic, gnosis in Greek, Da'ath in Hebrew, the hidden sephirah on the Tree of Life, hidden within the throat whereby the verb is gestated, the power of the Tree of Knowledge). They say, "We believe in it: all is from our Lord." And none remember save those possessors of intellect (intelligence, Binah). –Al-Imran 7

The last phrase, “possessors of intellect,” is an inadequate translation. The original Arabic is ulu'l-al-bab, “possessors of kernels” or “seeds.” An intuitive kabbalist can see into the core of things, into their seed, their root nature. This is the nature of intuition, to perceive and interpret the experiences of divinity directly without the interference of the mind. We do so precisely working with the sexual seed, the seed of life. Intuitive kabbalists also see into and interpret the heart or core of any doctrine, any knowledge, any dimension, precisely since they develop the power of prophecy, founded upon Yesod. —Arcanum 2: The Empress from the Gnostic Academy of Chicago
Kabbalah is at the heart of Islam, which is the science of La Baca [in Spanish, the Kabbalah pronounced backwards], which translates as the cow, the Divine Mother of Surah 2, Al-Baqarah.

The science of the Divine Mother is the sacred stone, the Ka'ba of Yesod. Remember that Prophet Muhammad, while meditating at the Ka'ba or cubic stone of Yesod in Mecca, rode the mystical animal al-Buraq (Arabic for "the lightning" or Kundalini power) up the seven heavens (awakening the seven heavenly chakras of the spinal medulla).

The serpent awaits its awakening through the science of Yesod, the Ka'ba, so that the blackened stone of sex can be purified once more.

The name Muhammad, using the Abjad system of Arabic Kabbalah, is constituted of the following letters with specific numerical value:

Muhammad: (م) Mim (40) + (ح) Ha (8) + (م) Mim (40) + (م) Mim (40) + (د) Dal (4) = 132

Muhammad has the same Kabbalistc value as the Arabic word for "heart":

قلب Qalb, Heart:
ق Qaf (100) +
ل Lam (30) +
ب Ba (2) = 132

The sum for both ب Qalb and محمد Muhammad is 132. Adding the digits together we also get: 32 + 1 = 33. This reminds us of the 32 paths of Kabbalah, the Tree of Life, that we must walk to achieve Self-realization. There are thirty-three canyons within the spinal medulla through which البراق Al-Buraq, the sexual power of the Divine Mother, must rise.

Therefore Prophet Muhammad symbolizes how from the Ka'ba, Yesod, we raise the Kundalini power up the 33 vertebrae of the spinal medulla in accordance with the powers and fires of the heart, in order to ascend to the superior worlds.

When you add 33 together you get 3 + 3 = 6, and the sixth Sephirah in Kabbalah is תפארת Tiphereth, the Heart. With just reason, Prophet Muhammad, stated:
There is an organ in the body that, if it is righteous, ensures that the whole system will be righteous; and if it is corrupt, the whole body will become corrupt. This organ is the heart.

There is a polish for everything that takes away rust; and the polish for the heart is dhikr, the remembrance of Allah. –Hadith
The fires of the heart control the fires of sex when we know how to polish the mirror of our heart, so as to reflect the light of divinity.

Prophet Muhammad is "the Seal of the Prophets," signified by the two ת Tav's in תפארת Tiphereth. ת Tav in Hebrew means "seal" or "truth." Therefore, Prophet Muhammad represents תפארת Tiphereth within any disciple that is walking the path of البراق Al-Buraq, the Rune Sig or "lightning" of الله Allah. The seal of the truth or truth seal is Mahamudra, Dzogchen, upon which Padmasambhava commented:
"It is the secret, unexcelled cycle of the supreme vehicle of Tantra, the true essence of the definitive meaning; the short path for attaining Buddhahood in one life."
This is the straight path mentioned in al-Fatihah of the Qur'an.

Lightning, b-r-q in Arabic, is also a vajra. Vajra relates with Dzogchen, Mahamudra, the Truth Seal, the Seal of the Prophets.

So we see that Muhammad is a master of tantra or Vajrayana, the sexual alchemical teachings. That's how he ascended to the superior worlds. البراق Al-Buraq is the lightning or the אור Aur, "light" of תפ-אר-ת Tiphereth: תפ-אור-ת, in the heart, the center of the Tree of Life. תפארת Tiphereth therefore hides the Hebrew letter ו Vav or Arabic و waw, the spinal medulla through which البراق Al-Buraq ascends within our spinal column to take us to heaven, the straight path to leads the soul to liberation, as described in the first Surah of the Qur'an, al-Fatihah. All of this is accomplished through sexual magic and dhikr: intense remembrance of الله Allah, the Being.
