muslims; u say there are different versions of the bible, well why are there different versions of quran?

the bible was written in hebrew, and there is only 1 hebrew version, just like there is 1 arabic version of quran, so why do you call your english versions translations but u call our english versions different versions which are different bibles?

Update:

u guys seem to be avoiding the querstion. dont just say that the bible has been changed without any proof. if this was the case, why are there billions of christians?

    the bible has been added to and changed by men throughout the years. the Qur'an has not been changed since prophet Muhammad was given the words by God. we only have language translations, not 'versions' there is a difference. the language translations are so everyone can read it, but the Qur'an has not been altered. when we say you have different versions of the bible, we don't mean as in language, we mean that it has changed over history so it does not resemble the original bible

    The original Bible is written in Hebrew but most Muslims believe that a portion of the Bible is missing or was changed over time, when or how is no longer known. Many Bibles have different editors and the ones written in the same language sometimes differ from one another. That does not mean that it is entirely untrue but Muslims believe that it is unreliable. I'm still very interested in reading the Bible and Torah as those are still holy scriptures.

    The original Quran is still in the world, unchanged. All Qurans written in Arabic are copied word for word from the original. The only Qurans that differ from the original are the translations, which are not entirely correct (because of the difference in languages). That is why the Muslim world acknowledges that Muslims are better off learning Arabic and read the Quran in its true form.

If you know where can i get an authentic copy PLEASE... i would appreciate if you could give me the whole Gospel of Jesus(peace and blessing be upon him) ... Precisely the Whole Book please

    why is it that the Christians and the rest doesn't have it???

    And how about you do you have any proof???? Have you seen it?? have you Read it? do people memorize it? is it shared? Is the Teaching of the REAL bible passed? Do Christian follow the Real bible??? Or do they follow those bible which were written just by people when Jesus (peace and blessing be upon him) was long long long gone already!!! not even the same time.... You called it authentic?? you never saw it yourself...

    Bring the Real bible first then get back to me

    Bible has King James Version, NIV version, New King James Version, and many many more.

    Just search it.

    The Quran is simply, "The Holy Quran". There are no versions of it. It has not been added to.

    The Bible was written and changed throughout the years, such as when King James published HIS OWN VERSION of the Bible.

    There is an Old Testament but the New Testament disregards some laws of the Old Testament. This changing and the fact that it was written by men who were not around Jesus's time AND the fact that it has numerous and countless contradictions clearly shows the falsity in the Christian Bible.

  • Bibles are different b/c they change the meanings around

    the Qur'ans translations only translate = explain the same meanings in a different language

    although, there *are screwed up translations of the Qur'an out there, but people have done a good job of taking them out of circulation b/c so many have memorized the verses from heart and keep the Ummah on track:

    54:17

    "And We have indeed made the Qur'an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?"

    but the different translations of the bible have actually been promoted and supported ...so what to believe? it's been changed!

    :)

    peace

  • there is only one version of the Quran. but the Bible has been changed many times and there are many different versions of it. ya there are Quran translations translated by different people. but the Quran written in arabic has not been changed. versions and translations are two completely different things.

    That doesn't really make sense. The Bible has been changed so many times over the centuries everybody knows this.

    Third-century church father Origen on the copies of the Gospels:

    “The differences among the manuscripts have become great, either through the negligence of some copyists or through the perverse audacity of others; they either neglect to check over what they have transcribed, or, in the process of checking, they make additions or deletions as they please”.

    Orthodox bishop of Corinth named Dionysius:

    “When my fellow-Christians invited me to write letters to them I did so. These the devils’ apostles have filled with tares, taking away some things and adding others. For them the woe is reserved. Small wonder then if some have dared to tamper even with the word of the Lord Himself, when they have conspired to mutilate my own humble efforts”.

    “Not only do we not have the originals, we don’t have the first copies of the originals. We don’t even have the copies of the copies of the originals, or copies of the copies of the copies of the originals. What we have are copies made much later-much later. In most instances, they are copies made many centuries later. And these copies all differ from one another, in many thousands of places….Possibly it is easiest to put it in comparative terms: There are more differences among our manuscripts than there are words in the New Testament.”

    A statement from the Church father himself is proof enough. After all, why would a Church father of all people say that there are "great differences" in the Bible if there wasn't? That doesn't make sense!

    But if you want proof here are some contradictions:

    Mark 2: Jesus is confronted by the Pharisees because Jesus and his disciples ate grain on the Sabbath. So Jesus reminded them of what King David done (ate the bread reserved for the priests in the Temple when Abiathar was the high priest). However, the Old Testament verse that Jesus is reciting (1 Sam 21:1-6) says, in actual fact, that David did not do this when Abiathar was the high priest but when Abiathar’s father, Ahimelech, was.

    Mark 4: Jesus says that the mustard seed is the “smallest of all seeds on earth”.

    Mark 14:12; 15:25: Jesus died after the Passover meal was eaten.

    John 19:14: Jesus died before it was eaten.

    Luke 2:39: After Jesus’ birth, Joseph and Mary returned to Nazareth just over a month after they had come to Bethlehem and performed the rites of purification.

    Matthew 2:19-22: Matthew indicates they fled to Egypt.

    Galatians 1:16-17: Paul says that after he converted on the way to Damascus he did not go to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before him.

    Acts 9:26: Says that was the first thing he did after leaving Damascus.

    what is the bible exactly.. a group of books written by the followers of Jesus a few years after his death..

    the present compliation of the bible was voted upon by some relgious scholars and kings later (long later) after jesus departed.. some of the writings they voted to be destroyed and not included in the now bible..

    Whose to say that those books were more or less relavant to what we need to know... The bible also isnt Gods exact words dictated and writen down as said to Jesus.. its only hearsay stories, history, parables that the deciples wrote from memory..

    the Quran is the actual word for word dictation from God to Mohammed, he wrote them down exactly as given, not a dot or iota or pronunciation left out...

    Jesus didnt manage to write down the bible during his walk on earth or manage to proofread his exact words...

    and also it wasnt in hebrew.. it was more of aramaic language.. and some words get lost in translation from history to history.. NO bible has the exact original books written in the original language side by side of the english translation for you to compare.. No christian demands that another learn aramaic to be able to know exactly what it means..

    our Quran does.. every print in english or other language has the arabic text along with it.. Every muslim is encouraged to learn arabic to read the original verses..

    Protestant bibles have the fewest chapters.

    Catholic bible have more chapters.

    Orthodox bibles have the most chapters.

    How many chapters does this hebrew bible of yours have? However many chapters it has, you should inform the hundreds of millions of christians belong to the sects using a different number of chapters that they've been wrong for all these centuries.

    lol there are no different versions of the Qu'ran... all one.

    Hebrew Bible is always going to be original. Why couldn't the Christians just learn how to speak Hebrew??
