This paper focuses on an objection to Gallez’s conclusion to eliminate the Nasara from the original Koranic body of texts and expects the reader to be familiar with his material. With the help of the Jerusalem Talmud, this answer proposes that the Nasara constitutes a continuance of Judeo-Christian Babylonians. The timing of the addition of the Nasara reveals important clues to the expansion of an alliance.

This update includes the revelation from the Jerusalem Talmud of the arrival of a messiah in the seventh century, Ahmet, the Son of God. The Nasara may have regarded this messiah as the Son of God (also).
