Muslims and Christians
believe in the infallibility of the original Biblical manuscripts. But many adherents of Islam think that today's Bible has undergone substantial changes with regard to its early manuscripts and their translated versions.

But the Quran does not support this claim unanimously! In fact it makes it clear that the Bible, known as the Torah and the Injil, was found reliable in Muhammad's (pbuh) time, the sixth century. To prove that the twentieth century Bible is still authentic it only has to be compared with a copy from the sixth century. [ Read More ]

However the discovery in 1947 of the Dead Sea Scrolls can do even better than comparing the scriptures to the sixth century. Dr. Bryant Wood, an archaeologist with Associates for Biblical Research, replies to the question "What archaeological discovery has had the all-time greatest Biblical impact?" with the following:

    "Probably the Dead Sea Scrolls have had the greatest Biblical impact. They have provided Old Testament manuscripts approximately 1,000 years older than our previous oldest manuscript. The Dead Sea Scrolls have demonstrated that the Old Testament was accurately transmitted during this interval. In addition, they provide a wealth of information on the times leading up to, and during, the life of Christ." [ Read More ]

The Bible's books are arranged by TYPE, rather than chronologically. The nine major sections are:

  1. Books of Moses and the Law
  2. History books (about God's chosen people, Israel)
  3. Wisdom books
  4. Prophets' books (beginning with the most major five first)
  5. Gospels (Jesus Life and the way of salvation)
  6. History of the early church (Acts)
  7. Paul's letters
  8. Other letters
  9. Apocalypse (Book of Revelation)

The Bible is unique in that it:

  • was written by over 40 authors...
  • was written on 3 different continents: Asia, Africa and Europe...
  • was written in many different places: wilderness, prison, traveling, islands...
  • was written over a period of 1,500 years...
  • was written by people who had different kinds of jobs: fishermen, kings, shepherds, a herdsman, a politician, a doctor, a tax collector, a rabbinical scholar and more...

They all wrote about the same thing, and without any contradictions!
