Early Islamic scholars have confirmed the Taurat and Injil were not physically corrupted so why is belief to the contrary so prevalent amongst Muslims?

1 Answer
Camilla Adang (1996) in "Muslim Writers on Judaism and the Hebrew Bible from Ibn Rabban to Ibn Hazm" cites examples of early scholars like Ibn al-Layth, Ibn Rabban, Ibn Qutayba, Al-Yaqubi, Al-Tabari, al-Baqillani, Al-Masudi and Al-Bukhari

Nope, they have "confirmed" no such thing..  A simple example is all that is required to show they are corrupted.  Samuels 24:13 So God came to David, and told him, and said unto him, Shall seven years of famine come unto thee in thy land? or wilt thou flee three months before thine enemies, while they pursue thee? or that there be three days' pestilence in thy land? now advise, and see what answer I shall return to him that sent me.  Chronicles 21:11 So God went to David and said to him, “This is what the LORD says: ‘Take your choice, three years of famine, three months of being swept away before your enemies, with their swords overtaking you, or three days of the sword of the LORD—days of plague in the land, with the angel of the LORD ravaging every part of Israel.’ Now then, decide how I should answer the one who sent me.”  So how many years of famine or did "God" make a mistake?  Then you've glaring errors:  Chronicles 36:9 tells us that JEHOIACHIN was "eight" years old when he began to reign, while  Kings 24:8 says that he was "eighteen" when he began to reign.  The unknown author of KINGS must have reasoned that what possible evil could a child of eight do to deserve his abdication perhaps?    There are hundreds of these errors in the psalms, torah and bible. Even Christians and Jews themselves, pick ot these errors.
