Hebrews 5:7-8 confirm Islam's claim about Jesus never got crucified and contradicts the Bible

 The Chapter of Hebrews 5, and emphasis on verses 5:7-8.

While I was reading my Bible before bed time (sometimes read the Bible and sometimes read the Noble Quran), I stumbled upon Chapter Hebrews 5 in the Bible's New Testament.  The following was taken from the New International Version Bible (NIV).   Pay attention to Hebrews 5:7:
Hebrews 5
1  Every high priest is selected from among men and is appointed to represent them in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins.
2  He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness.
3  This is why he has to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for the sins of the people.
4  No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was.
5  So Christ also did not take upon himself the glory of becoming a high priest. But God said to him,
"You are my Son;
today I have become your Father.[1] "[2]
6  And he says in another place,
"You are a priest forever,
in the order of Melchizedek."[3]
7  During the days of Jesus' life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could
save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.
8  Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered 9  and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him
10  and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

Warning Against Falling Away

11  We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn.
12  In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God's word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!
13  Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.
14  But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.

5:5 Or have begotten you
5:5 Psalm 2:7
5:6 Psalm 110:4

Few points to notice:

1-  In Hebrews 5:7, we clearly see that GOD Almighty had heard Jesus' cries to save him from death.
2-  In the book of Psalm 91, we see the same reference with the exception that in Psalm 91:10-12, 15, we read that GOD Almighty will not let the crucifixion to happen, and that the Angels will protect the Messiah from all harm and lift him up:
Chapter Psalm 91 clearly and indisputably confirms that Jesus never got crucified!
It is, first of all, important to know that Psalm 91 is referenced more than once in the New Testament for Jesus Christ.  So we know for certainty that Psalm 91 is referring to the coming Messiah in the Bible:
Luke 4:10-11
10 For it is written: " 'He will command his angels concerning you (Christ) to guard you carefully;
11 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'"

Matthew 4:5-6
5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple.
6 "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. For it is written: " 'He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'"

Let us now take a look at Psalm 91:
(Please pay specially attention to Psalm 91:11-12, 15)
Psalm 91
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [a]
2 I will say [b] of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.  (According to the Noble Quran and the original writings of the Disciples of Jesus, Jesus was not crucified, and he watched the crucifixion of the doomed person).
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling— even the LORD, who is my refuge-
10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.  (If Jesus died on the cross and got buried, then his feet would've struck the ground and the stones on it from bringing him down, throwing him on the floor and burying him).
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
a.Psalm 91:1 Hebrew Shaddai 
b.Psalm 91:2 Or He says 

3-  As shown in the displayed article on Psalm 91, the New Testament in Luke 4:10-11 and Matthew 4:5-6 clearly links Psalm 91 to Jesus Christ, or the coming Messiah.
4-  Yet, unlike in the rest of the book of Hebrews and in many parts of the New Testament, Psalm 91 doesn't go in harmony at all with the crucifixion.
·  Hebrews 9:11-15
11 When Christ came as high priest of the good things that are already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not man-made, that is to say, not a part of this creation.
12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.
13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean.
14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
15 For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant."

·  While we read in Hebrews 9:11-15 about Jesus Christ died for our sins, but Psalm 91:10-12, 15 clearly contradict that.  We are told in the latter verses that, yes, GOD Almighty: 

·  Will hear his cries (Psalm 91:15) and will save him (Psalm 91:3).

·  He will cover him with His Protection (Psalm 91:4).

·  Christ will then not have any fear in him (Psalm 91:5).

·  Christ will then observe with his own eyes the punishment of the crucified ones (Psalm 91:8).

·  No harm or disaster will even come near Christ (Psalm 91:10....this even contradicts him getting beaten up before crucifixion).

·  GOD Almighty will send down the Angels to protect him and lift him (Psalm 91:11-12, 14).  Not even his foot will strike the ground from his enemies pushing, grappling and punishment.

·  Christ will be delivered and honored (Psalm 91:15).

·  His life will be prolonged (extended) and he will live to even see his offspring (Isaiah 53:10, which by the way contradicts Jesus never got married and had children.  In Islam's Noble Quran's 13:38, however, it is quite possible that Jesus Christ had wives and children).

·  His life will overpower death (Isaiah 53:12).

So how do we explain this contradiction then?
Clearly Psalm 91 is in irreconcilable disagreement with the New Testament.  So how is this possible? 
Well, the answer to this question is actually quite simple.  There is really not a whole a lot to it except quoting what the New Testament's own theologians and historians say about the Canon (the Bible), and about its books and gospels, and in particular about the book of Hebrews.  And since all of the books and gospels had been altered by unknown men, unknown number of men, and in unknown places and unknown dates, then it is obviously quite possible and highly probable that false agendas and beliefs had been injected into the "Scriptures", then this makes the book (the book Hebrews in this case):
·  Falsely reference what the older manuscripts say and prophesy.  In this case, Psalm 91 was completely misunderstood and referenced wrongly in the New Testament.

·  Contain alterations and insertions by people from different beliefs, times, places and mindsets, which certainly explains why the Bible, as a whole, contains ample and countless contradictions, corruptions, man's alterations, historical errors, and scientific absurdities in it.
By the way, I've just recently purchased 5 new Bibles from among the top English Bibles in the US.  I bought every Bible that had commentaries, history and appendices for each book and gospel it contained, and the total were, again, 5 Bibles.  The rest of the Bibles in the bookstore didn't have commentaries and history in them; just verses.  I will be updating the article, insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing), with ample new quotes that will further prove with any doubt that the Bible is indeed a corrupt and altered book.  You will be amazed, insha'Allah, at what I've read from the many many different historians and theologians who translated the English Bibles.  But anyway, the article as it stands right now, still contains ample proofs from the NIV Bible's commentaries that, again, prove that it had been corrupted and altered by unknown men, unknown number of men, and in unknown places and unknown dates.  The other Bibles' commentaries, which I've already read, will further confirm this, insha'Allah.
I will update this section once I update the article, insha'Allah.

The Bible is in clear contradiction with itself regarding Jesus Christ's alleged crucifixion and in everything else that it essentially talks about.  It can not be trusted nor taken very seriously to base a serious faith on.  At best, one would only be speculating when he tries to use the Bible to prove anything.  Islam is the only Religion, which is by the way also the Only True and uncorrupt Divine Religion remaining today, that confirms the Truth in the Bible and removes the falsehood from it.
I pray to Allah Almighty that this article will shed some light upon the reader and clearly prove to him/her that Islam is the True Way to GOD Almighty, and it is indeed a True and Divine Religion from GOD Almighty.  Ameen.
