The above verses in no way contradict this following verse, that says that there is no distinction between the Prophets, for there is no distiction between their messages, for they all taught that there is no God other than Allah. ~ La ilaha illa Allah.

“The Messenger believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and so do the believers. Each one of them believes in Allah, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers “We make no distinction {in message} between one another of His Messengers. And they say, “We hear, and we obey. We seek Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return.”
