What Does the Quran Say about the Bible?

In verse 3 of Surah Al-Imran of the Qur’an, Allah says: He has sent down to you the Book of Truth confirming the previous books, and He has sent down the Torah and the Gospel.  In another place Allah says: And following in the footsteps of these Prophets, we sent Isa bin Maryam Those who confirmed the Torah, the first book of theirs and gave them the Gospel, which is a guide and a light and the Torah which confirms the Book before it, and guides and advises those who guard (against evil). { Surah Al-Maida:46}. The term Bible is not found in the Qur’an.

In Quran Bible is called the Injeel which was revealed to Prophet Isa (A.S). Except for the Qur’an, all other books have been distorted, so the Qur’an says that it is necessary to believe in these books but not to follow them. Because over time these books were changed. But the Qur’an bears witness to these books, and also Quran testifies to the nations upon which they are revealed.

Introduction of the Bible:

The Injeel (Gospel) is an Arabic word that means “Good news” that is called the Bible in modern times. The Gospel is the third inspired book revealed to Prophet Isa (A.S).
