Was the Bible corrupted as Muslims claim?
We must remember that the Torah (the first five books of the Old Testament),the Zabur (the Psalms), the Injil (the Gospel) and the Sahaif (the books of the Prophets), which are mentioned in the Koran are the same the Torah, the Zabur, the Injil and the Sahaif found in the Holy Bible.
The Torah, the Zabur and the Sahaif are called the Holy Scriptures of the Jews, which we Christians call the Old Testament. The Injel is called the Holy Scriptures of the Christians which we call the New Testament. Some of our Muslim brothers sometimes say that the whole Bible has been falsified! Especially those who don’t like the moral constraints of the Bible want to say that the Bible has been changed since it was written. This is basically because they are not willing to consider the evidence honestly. There is absolutely no evidence that the Bible has been revised, edited or tempered with in any systematic manner.
As we know Mohammad Dib, a Bedouin shepherd of the tribe of Ta’ Amireh, in 1947, first found the Dead Sea Scrolls in the cave of Qumran when he went there to look for his lost goat. This Dead Sea Scroll proved that each word of the Holy Bible is correct and nothing has been changed. Now we will see how Koran testifies the Holy Bible.
Surah Al- Sajdah 23 says, “We did indeed a foretime give the Book to Moses; be not then in doubt of it’s reaching (thee); and We made it guide to the Children of Israel.”
Surah Al-Maidah 46 says “And in their (those of previous prophets) footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him; We sent him the Gospel; there in was guidance and light, and confirmation of the Law that had come before him; a guidance and an admonition to those who fear God.”
Surah Al-Maidah 47 says, “Let people of the Gospel judge by what God hath revealed therein. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what God hath revealed, they are (no better than) those who rebel.”
Surah Al-Baqarah 62 says, “And those who follow the Jewish (Scripture), and the Christians and the Sabian’s, any who believe in God and the last day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on their shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”
Surah Al-Baqarah 136 says, “We believe in God and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Isaac, Ismail, Jacob and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to Prophets from their Lord; we make no difference between one and another of them; and we bow to God.”
There are still more verses in the Koran indicating that the Holy Bible are right path of truth in accordance with the will of God.
We know that Mohammad came this earth 600 years after the ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ. By that time how many thousands of the Holy Bible been distributed among the followers of Christ and the Church’s of Christ, we don’t know. Now if any Muslim says that the Holy Bible has been changed then the very simple question comes to our mind, then why Mohammad said in his time that the Torah and The Gospel (Old Testament and the New Testament) are true?
As for the Jews, their zeal in preserving their book is proverbial. They know the exact number of words and letters it contains, as all who have associated with their leaders know. Thus the Holy Bible in its entirety is free from alteration and change will never overtake it, as is witnessed by common sense and historic transmission. Since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in Qumran, it has become abundantly clear that the copying and transmission of God’s Holy Book is living proof of the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Church of Christ.
Now we will see what the Koran says about the Holy Bible.
Surah Al-Baqarah 38 says, “Who so ever follow my guidance, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.”
Surah Al-Baqarah 91 says, “Believe in what God hath sent down.”
Surah Ali Imran 3 says, “It is He who sent down to thee, in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it.”
Surah Al-Maidah 47 says, “Let the people of the Gospel judge by what God hath revealed therein.”
Surah Al-Maidah 68 recorded, “Say. ‘People of the Book! Ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord.’”
Surah Yunus 94 says, “If thou wert in doubt as to what We have revealed unto thee, then ask those who have been reading the Book before thee: the Truth hath indeed come to thee from thy Lord: so be in no wise of those in doubt.”
These verses like tens of others demonstrate unequivocally that the Koran came attesting to the veracity of the Torah and the Gospel confirming them and watching over them, that is, as a guardian and preserver.
If the Bible was corrupted before Jesus, why did not Jesus correct it for his disciples? After all, he received the Torah (The Law) from God. And if it was “beyond correction” why did he not tell his disciples to ignore it? Instead Jesus confirmed the Bible saying “Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.” (Luke 24; 44).
If the Bible was corrupted by the Jews after Jesus, why did the Christians not protest this change in Scripture? And if it was the Christians corrupting the Bible, why did the Jews not protest? And if the Jews and Christians got together to change the Bible, why is there no record of this event?
Therefore, the Bible could not have been corrupted before or after Jesus. Every word of the Holy Bible is true and correct and these Muslims claims are not true.
