A Case for CSI…Old Manuscripts confirm The Bible As Unchanged

But Muslims continue telling that historical evidence is not enough!…

There has been, much debate among intellectual Muslims on the issue of the miracle of the Qur’an. Some Arabic scholars like az-Zamakhshari noted more than one hundred grammatical errors in the Qur’an.

The Bible, on the other hand, has stood the test of time. To suggest that the Bible has been altered is against both reason and historic findings.

Neither Christians nor Jews can reasonably be accused of altering their Scriptures. One reason is that they didn't have anything to gain from doing so, and if they did, they wouldn't willingly spill their blood defending it.

In the book of Revelation God puts a severe punishment on those who add to or take away, any part of God's Word. (Rev. 22:18 & 19) The Jews were also commanded not to commit such a terrible act. (Deuteronomy 4:2). Furthermore, Christians and Jews did not alter their Scriptures based on historic evidence. Many manuscripts of early copies of the Bible were discovered through the years, and were found to match the text we have now. Here are some of these famous manuscript:

The Sinaitic - It was written in the middle of the fourth century, about 270 years before Islam. It contains the whole of the New Testament and a large part of the Old Testament. It is now kept in the British Museum

The Alexandrian - It was written in the early fifth century, more than 200 years before Islam. It contains the whole Bible, except a few pages that have been lost. It is also kept in the British Museum.

The Vatican - It was written in the early fourth century, about 300 years before Islam. It contains the whole Bible. It is now kept in the Vatican Library at Rome. These and other manuscripts such as Codex Ephraemi and the Dead Sea Scrolls and the thousands of other copies or part of copies of the early Bibles prove beyond doubt that the Bible could not possibly be altered or corrupted.

All these Codex existed and still exist far over and befor Muhammad’s birth…So can on be so silly and still say that Christians falsified their writings?
