The Bible is a canonical collection of texts considered sacred in Judaism or Christianity. Different religious groups include different books within their canons, in different orders, and sometimes divide or combine books, or incorporate additional material into canonical books. Christian Bibles range from the sixty-six books of the Protestant canon to the eighty-one books of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church canon.

I praise Almighty Allah and thank Him for guiding me to the light of Islam, and I testify there is none worthy of any worship, except Allah and that Muhammad is His messenger.
Let me begin by stating, we Muslims do not seek to put down or desecrete the Holy Bible, even though there is no extant piece of scripture in original form, we still hold in our hearts and minds a very high place for the original revelation of the Bible and for all of those to whom God inspired with its revelation.

It is a critical matter of faith for every Muslim to believe in the original revelations that came down to Moses, David, Solomon and Jesus, just as it is is important for Muslims to believe in the revelation of the Quran that came to Muhammad, peace be upon him.

It is initially presumed in this study that the books which the Quran and early Muslims referred to as the Taurat, the Zabur and the Injil, are part of what is now commonly called the Bible. The Taurat is probably to be equated with the Old Testament and the Injil with the New, though one might argue that only the Pentateuch and the four Gospels are indicated. The question one must ask is, what would an Arabian Jew of Muhammad's time understand when he heard the term Taurat, or an Arabian Christian when he heard Injil (= evangel = gospel = good news)? The most likely answer is the Holy Books which were in the possession of their religious leaders, i.e., the Old and New Testaments. That this initial presumption is correct will be very easily confirmed by an honest study of the following passages.
