Good News

The Bible is Changed - Really? It is supposed by many Muslims that the Bible which Christians have today is a corruption of an original text which has been lost. They charge Christians with distorting the Bible. Yet, on the other hand, their holy book, the Qur'an, upholds this same Bible, calling it the word of God. God caused them to descend (He revealed them) In the Qur'an the following terms are used with reference to parts of the Bible: 1. Tawrat - Torah, the fist five books of the Bible 2. Zabur - the Psalms 3. Injil - the Gospel 4. Sahaif - the books of the prophets The Torah, the Psalms and the Sahaif are called the Holy Scriptures of the Jews, which Christians call the Old Testament. The Injil is called the Holy Scripture of the Christians which Christians call the New Testament. The Qur'an states that all these Scriptures were revealed by God: " .... confirming that which was (revealed) before is, even as He revealed the Torah and the Gospel." [1] A Guidance for Mankind: The Qur'an emphasizes that the Tawrat, the Zabur, the Injil, and the Sahaif are God's books, His word, light, and "Furqan" that is, a criterion for judgment. 1. Tawrat a)is the book of Allah.[2] b)is a guidance and reminder for men of understanding.[3] c)is light and guidance.[4] d)is "the Criterion."[5] 2. Injil a)"has clear proofs." [6] b)was, "bestowed on him (Jesus)" c)has "guidance and light" and d)is "confirming ... the Torah." [7] The Universiality of The Torah & The Injil: The Qur'an insist that the Injil and the Torah are guidance for all mankind, "clear testimonies for mankind, and a guidance and a mercy."[8] The Holy Injil as a standard: Christians are told to judge according to the Injil. "Let the people of the Gospel judge by that which Allah hath revealed therein. Whoso judgeth not by that which Allah revealed, such are evil livers."[9] The Qur'an would hardly command Christians to judge by their book if Muhammad had had reason to believe that it had been changed, even in the slightest degree. Yet, many Muslims today allege that the Holy Gospel has been grossly distorted. Either the Muslims who cast doubt on the veracity of the Bible are wrong of Muhammad was wrong! God's Word never changes: The Qur'an claims that no one can alter the word of God. It says, "It is the law of Allah which hath taken course aforetime. Thou wilt not find for the law of Allah aught of power to change."[10] In another place the Qur'an says, "There is no changing the word of Allah - that is the Supreme Triumph."[11] The Qur'an as a guardian: The Qur'an not only claims to confirm the previous Scriptures but also claims the responsibility of being, "the watcher over it."[12] Al-Baidhawi explains that "watcher over it" means, "The Qur'an is the protector of all the sacred books to preserve them from any kind of change."[13] The Qur'an does not suggest "Alteration" In the Qur'an there is no suggestion of alteration or corruption of the biblical text by use of the word, "tahrif." The Qur'an, using the word "tahrif", occasionally accuses the Jews (but not the Christians) of concealing the truth, but it in no way implies that the text had been corrupted. Different kinds of "Tahrif" In the Qur'an the word "tahrif" is used with the following meanings:- 1. To pervert words from their meaning by distorting them with the tongue. For example, the Qur'an accuses certain Jews of deliberately mispronouncing words spoken by Muhammad: "Some of those who are Jews change words from their context ...... distorting with their tongues and slandering religion."[14] 2. To misinterpret verses. For example, they "used to listen to the Word of Allah then used to change it, after they had understood it, knowingly."[15] The facts: Accusations by Muslim apologists that the text of the Injil and the Torah had been corrupted did not arise until long after Muhammad. Accusations that the scriptures had been tempered with fist appeared in their writings during the 12th century.[16] Before Muhammad: Some claim that the Injil and the Torah were corrupted before the coming of the prophet of Islam. If that were so, why does the Qur'an affirm that the message revealed to Muhammad was simply a confirmation of the previous Scriptures? According to the Qur'an, which was written approximately seven hundred years after the writing of the Injil, the Torah and the Injil were in pure form in Muhammad's time. Had the Injil not been genuine and totally accurate in the time of Muhammad, then the Qur'an would not have instructed Christians to judge by that which God had revealed in the Gospel. After Muhammad : Others charge that the Torah and the Injil were changed sometime after Muhammad began preaching. however, this charge contradicts the Qur'an since it claims to be the guardian of the previous inspired books. Thus, anyone who claims that there has been corruption of the text of the Torah or of the Injil also, inevitably, charges the Qur'an with failure in its role as Guardian! If the pre-Islamic Scriptures had been corrupted, why does the Qur'an order Muslims to believe them? For it is written in the Qur'an:- "Say (O Muslims): "We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and which was revealed unto Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac and Jacob, and the tribes and that which Moses and Jesus received, and that which the prophets received from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered."[17] Documentary evidence : Numerous manuscript copies of all parts of the Bible written centuries before the time of Muhammad are available today. For example, the Dead Sea Scrolls, which were written before 68A.D. contains most of every book of the Old Testament except one, (i.e. Esther)[18] Also, one of the oldest Greek manuscripts of the entire New Testament which is available for research is Codex Alexandrinus. This manuscript dates from the 5th century A.D. and may be seen daily & studied in the British Museum in London Manuscripts of portions of the New Testament which date back to the 2nd century may also be studied. The reliability of the present-day Bible may be verified by comparison with such documents as these. modern bonafide translations are basically the same in content as those current in Muhammad's time. They do not differ in any item of doctrine which Muslims call in question. We Christians believe that God who preserved his Word in the past is able to preserve it always in the future. The Bible is changed: Really? If the Bible and the Qur'an do disagree they cannot both be right. Has, then, the Qur'an made a mistake in vindicating the Bible? No! For reference has been made to the historical documents which substantiate the Bible. We urge Muslims to follow the Qur'an's clear advice to Muhammad and his followers: "If thou art in doubt concerning that We reveal unto thee, then question those who read Scripture (that was before thee."[19] Why? Because it is truly, "a guidance to all mankind."[20] (Steven Masood)
