in response to reader comment: our dear Jennifer and her Torah

Que Be,

So you are posting from Indonesia. Interesting.

You write that the Qur'an is the "latest version" of the Torah. Interesting. Given that the Torah (the first five books of the Bible) was complete 3,000 years ago; and the Bible (the one we have today) was completed almost 2,000 years ago.

That's at least six-hundred years before the Qur'an was written.

Here's what the Bible has to say about adding to, or taking away from, the Word of God -

"You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you." - Dueteronomy 4:2

"Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it." - Dueteronomy 12:32

"Do not add to His words or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar." - Proverbs 30:6

"I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book." - Revelation 22:18-19

The Bible was completed five centuries before Mohammed was born. There exists today over 5,686 Greek (the original language of the New Testament), hand-written manuscripts of the Bible dating as far back as 125 A.D. Their internal consistancy is 99.5%.

Out of curiosity - does the Qur'an ever state that the Bible is incorrect? Surely, the prophet Mohammed was aware of the Bible's existance.

Say hello to the palm trees for me.

Jennifer
