"According to the Bible, the mark of the beast is a mark that is put on the foreheads that essentially condemns someone to hell.

On the Islamic side, the Muslim Jesus returns and tells the Christians of the world, you've had it wrong all along. Your Bible is corrupt. I never claimed to be the son of God. I never died on the cross. Islam is the true religion. Follow the Mahdi or die."
