Mansoor - oldest "Bibles"

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Bible is not the original Gospel (Injil)

Submitted by jennifer solis (United States), Apr 2, 2008 at 15:45

Hello Mansoor,

The oldest COMPLETE copy of the New Testament is dated 300 A.D. Written in the original Greek.

Transcript of the oldest Old Testament dates 100-125A.D. Written in the original Hebrew.

See: http://www.danielpipes.org/comments/123189

The history of the writtings of the Bible reveal absolute strict preservation (after all, these were considered to be inspired words of God).

Do you have any information on the "oldest" Qur'an?

Not expecting to hear back from you on this one. It would require too much cerebral effort on your part.

Submitting....
