Salam,

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.”

...

It's incumbent upon Allah to guide His creation, so, through His Laws concerning Prophethood and Revelation, He has sent messengers. Declaring, "We make no distinction among them", for a believer, is a confirmation of the Laws of Allah, and a believer knows that Allah never changes His Laws. So, all Prophets were sent according to Allah's Laws, and a believer believing in Allah's Laws makes no distinction among the prophets. They were all from the same God, with the same purpose, and according to the same law.

This is what i think i understand from, "We Make No Distinction Among Them".
...

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.
...

Everything happens according to the Laws of Allah, so it is obvious that every person could excel other persons in some areas, for example: knowledge, physical strength, attitude towards nature and beauty, and many other things. Prophets were humans like all of us,
...
18:110 Say (O Prophet!), "I am only a human like you. It is revealed to me that your God is only One God. So, whoever looks forward to meeting with His Lord, let him do works that help others and ascribe no partners in the service of his Lord.”
...
And also when people mock other personalities, it never changes the law of Allah. Those laws are in the Qur'an and in the universe, so we Muslims have to establish the Qur'anic teachings and laws. If we really want to support all prophets we have to do it.
...
3:55 “O Jesus! I will cause you to die of natural causes, I will exalt you in honor and I will clear you of the slander of the disbelievers. And I will cause those who truly follow you to dominate those who reject, until the Day of Resurrection. Eventually, all of you will return to Me. Then I will judge among you about that wherein you used to differ.”

33:56 Surely, God and His angels support the prophet. O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! You shall support him and salute him with all respect.
[‘Support the prophet’ includes supporting his Mission. 4:65, 7:157, 33:43, 49:2. For salutations to other prophets, see Surah 37]
