Sura 5:47 Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allah hath revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel.

By Muhammad's 7th century, the Gospel had been translated into every popular language, copied tens of thousands of times, and had been read all over the "known world" for centuries. So by the time Muhammad recited that verse, Christians had already been going by what is revealed in the Gospel for over 400 years.

I had always suspected that verse to have been among Muhammad's earlier Mecca recitations, and that Islamic scholars simply relied on the fallback of claiming that verse to have been nullified and substituted with a better one. Because the Quraish pointed out that Muhammad's recitations were full of self-contradiction, Muhammad tried to excuse it away by claiming it to have been revealed "in stages", with latter recitations nullifying and substituting for earlier recitations that they contradicted:

2:106 (Asad) Any message which, We annul or consign to oblivion We replace with a better or a similar one. Dost thou not know that God has the power to will anything?

Surah 16:101 When We substitute one revelation for another, and Allah knows best what He reveals (in stages), they say, "Thou art but a forger": but most of them understand not.

So I figured Muslims in here would claim it was annulled by and substituted with the verse that contains Muhammad's denial of the basis of the whole subject of the Gospel:

Surah 4:157 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, ..... for of a surety they killed him not:-

I had been somewhat mystified as to why Muhammad's followers haven't simply been declaring Sura 5:47 to have been nullified, until it recently dawned on me to check its chronological position in the Quran compared to Surah 4:157. As it happens, Sura 5:47 that instructs Christians to go by what is revealed in the Gospel, is in one of the last chapters or even the last chapter that Muhammad recited, and definitely after Surah 4:157 in which Muhammad denied the basis of the whole subject of the Gospel. So Muhammad's followers can't even allow themselves to make the claim, that his telling Christians to go by what is in the Gospel, was nullified and substituted by Muhammad's denial of the basis of the whole subject of the Gospel!

Even worse Muhammad's followers are required to believe those verses contain Muhammad's "Allah's" words so they can't even blame Muhammad for being ignorant to the whole subject of the Gospel that, for many centuries before Muhammad, Christians had already been going by what is revealed therein.

As at least one guy that possesses the capacity for critical thought recognized the truth:
