The position of Jews and Christians in Koran # 2

If you have talked to a moderate Muslim before, you probably heard the following verse(Surah 2, verse 62):
“ Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans ( before the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him), those among them who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.”
Interestingly, the verse was also repeated in Surah 5, verse 69

I would also like to highlight the following verse: “To each of you we prescribed a law and a method.” Surah 5, verse 48 .The question remains why are these verses frequently ignored by Islamic scholars who support violence against Christians and Jews?

Further analysis of the position of Christians and Jews in Koran will follow.
