From an Islamic viewpiont. http://www.islamway.com/english/imag...radictions.htm
As for knowing the bible is the word of god based on the idea it was written by so many people all over the world. Many of its original authors are unknown, and the original stories were revised and adapted many times to suit the current political agenda. The books were constantly expanded upon throughout the ages, and were not all perfectly written at the same time. Over almost 2000 years these texts were written, and then slowly edited into what we now know as the bible. Edited so that it was in chronological order. In every bible u will see notes at the bottom of each page which refer to the different versions different interpretations and translations.
The bible isnt even historically accurate. Proven historical evidence and archaeological findings show the bible has a distorted version of history.
Alleged biblical contradictions answered:
Contradictions in the koran:
Conclusion: The bible is the true word of God. The koran was written hundreds of years after the bible was completed. Mohommud took the bible and twisted up it's stories in order to fit his false religion. It was only written by one person, yet it still contradicts it's self. The bible was written through 40 men, many of which didn't even know or have contact with each other, yet it has no contradictions or errors. The dead sea scrolls PROVE that the bible was NOT edited or changed. You don't hear people who say that the bible has been changed (yet have not proof) speak of the dead sea scrolls. They outdated the oldest known manuscripts of the bible by over 1,200 years!! Yet when they were compared to the modern bible, they had NO errors or contradictions. Those who attack the word of God (the bible) can say what they want, the proof it right there. The koran is a twisted up book written by one man who is still in the grave. The bible was written by God, through 40 men. There is no way that 40 people could have written one book without God telling them exactly what to write, but one false prophet (mohommad) can sit and write a book and claim whatever he wants, that doesn't make it true.
