How many times Jesus is mentioned in Bible Vs Quran? The Major Biblical Scandal

The answer of this very important question depends on what version of the Bible you have. In one version, Jesus is mentioned 883 times; in some versions He is mentioned from 900 to some 1000 times. In others versions, Jesus is mentioned from 1200 to some 1700 times and so on up to 1907 times!  In the Quran, Jesus is mentioned 25 times.

1. How many Jesus is mentioned in the Bible?

When I have seen the difference in the results of how many times the word "prostrate" is mentioned in 22 different English versions of the Bible, I said let us try another item.

As far as I know, Jesus is the most important person in the Bible.

I said let us try to find out how many times Jesus is mentioned in different versions of the Bible, assuming that there should be no discrepancy at all.

 

How many times Jesus is mentioned in 22 different English versions of the Bible?

 

American Standard Version …………………………… 883

 

Darby Translation …………………………………………… 904

Young's Literal Translation ……………………………… 932

King James Version ………………………………………….

942

New Century Version ……………………………………………………. 1907

 

I am really indebted to this great website http://www.biblegateway.com/keyword/ for helping me to search out the name of Jesus in22 different English versions.

 

It is interesting that the New Century Version mentions Jesus twice times than does the American Standard Version. Actually, it is more than twice; for every 215 Jesus in the New Century Version there is one hundred Jesus in the American Standard.

 

Only two versions out of the 22 different English versions of the Bible mention Jesus equally; they are the New International Version 1984 and the New International Version – UK and both of them mention Jesus 1277 times.

 

Furthermore, in some versions Jesus is mentioned from 900 to some 1000 times. In others versions, He is mentioned from 1200 to some 1700 times and so on up to 1907 times!

 

This is unbelievable; I really could not imagine how and why they do that?

O you eminent Biblical writers, how and why you have done that with your Lord Jesus?

Certainly, this is a major Biblical scandal.

 

Today, the world is heading very fast for improving the quality control of goods and affairs. What about the quality control of the Bible at least in respect to the name of the Lord Jesus?

 

On the other hand, let us see how many times Jesus is mentioned in two different Arabic versions of the Bible?

An Arabic version (St-Takla.org) ………………………….. 931

Another Arabic version (Enjeel.com)…………………….931

 

Currently, which Biblical version is the accurate one? If you know: please let me know.

 

------------------

 

2. How many times Jesus is mentioned in the Quran?

 

Now let us see how many times Jesus is mentioned in the original Arabic Quran that is revealed unto the Prophet Muhammad via the Angel Gabriel, as well as in the four English translations of the meanings of the Noble Quran?

Jesus is mentioned 25 times in the original Arabic Quran.

It should be emphasized that the original Arabic Quran is the same one all over the world.

The copy of the original Arabic Quran in Africa is the same as the copy of the Arabic Quran in Asia, Europe, North America, South America, United States and Australia

 

Then, how many times Jesus is mentioned in the four English translations of the Quran?

Qarib translation ……………. 25

Shakir translation …………….25

Pickthal translation ………… 25

Yusuf Ali translation ……… 25

 

All the four English translations mention Jesus 25 times (not 24 or 26), the same as He is mentioned in the original Arabic Quran that is revealed unto the Prophet Muhammad.

No one dares or even think to add or remove a word other than that present in the original Arabic Quran.

 

------------------

 

By the way, Muhammad is mentioned four times only in the Quran.

But, how many times Muhammad is mentioned in the Bible? Many times!

And this is another story!
