WE SHOULD NOT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM SINCE THEY WERE ALL ONE IN PURPOSE. BUT ALLAH DOES.
2:136 (O You who have chosen to believe) Say, “We believe in God, and the revelation that has been given to us, and (the surviving truth) in what was sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, as well as the Tribal Israelite Prophets and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to all Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction among them (since all of them were one in purpose and they got their guidance from the One True God). And for Him, we are Muslims.”
We are not expected to distinguish between prophets since all of them were men of high character and they all had a common purpose.
However, Allah granted higher degrees to some over the others due to the differences in their assignments, their scope of work, the size of the community, the duration of their office and the sacrifice involved.
2:253 (All Messengers were one in purpose. They were assigned different strategies suitable to their times, locations and people.) We caused some of those Messengers to excel others. God spoke to some of them. Others He raised in degrees of high honor. Jesus son of Mary was one of those Messengers whom We gave clear signs of truth and helped him with Noble revelation. If God had so willed, the later generations would not have fought among themselves after clear evidence of the truth had come to them. But they chose to differ, some believing and others rejecting. Yet, if God had so willed, they would not have fought each other. But God does everything according to His laws.
