Let me give you a basic rundown on my thoughts on this.
The Jewish God, is the same God as the Christian God. Difference being the Jewish don't believe Christ is their Messiah, and their Messiah is still due to come.
Despite the 60+ direct prophetic verses in the OT that spell out who the Messiah was to be, right down to family lineage, birth place, method of death, resurrection and so on.The Jews (priests) of Jesus's time didn't want to give up power to a lowly peasant who rode in on a donkey (which was also prophetic).
Islam is a different bird. Jesus comes, performs miracles, dies, raises from the dead and preached for 40 days after his burial, to crowds as big as 500 people, and the Muslim religion only refers to him as a prophet? NOPE, Christianity says specifically Jesus is the Son of God. Actually God/Spirit/and Jesus are one (trinity) Also biblical teachings are so divergent from Islam, that they cannot be talking of the same God. A god of peace doesn't tell you to blow yourself up, or demand you worship him. Instead the Christian God desires you worship him, and gives you free will in the matter. Not The Same!
No other religion other than Christianity has a God who lived in man form, performed miracles and healings by large numbers, predicted his death burial and ressurection, walked on earth after death, and rose to heaven. These things were written closely after his death and by multiple witnesses and sources. Buddhists claim some isolated miracles from their leader, however they were written 500 years after his death. To me that is not credible. Other than that, no other God did these things in any numbers whatsoever, if at all.
And there's more, but for space I stop for now.
