Is The Bible Complete?

I've been reading the bible and i saw in Joshua where the writer referred to the Book of Jasher which is definitely not in the bible. I've seen the book of nathan too. And i think there are others too. Can someone explain why these books are not in the bible? that means its not complete right?i mean the bible!

You peope never knew that whatever you say bounces back at you.

1. In the Holy Quran ,we have abrogated verses and we have the reason for saying so. The abrogated verses are still there in the Quran. Now are you telling that there are no abrogated verses in the Bible despite the fact that Jesus said that he didnt come to annul.

2. What Gospel are you referring to, Mathew, MARK, lUKE, John, Acts, James etc.

Sister, I have had enough, am backing out because I have learnt that you have never answered the question(s) posed at you, rather you resort to lifting from chowdry, silas etc. I want to be committed to Islamic threads, learning about my faiths etc and leave you to your disbelief but if you need my attention, I will be eager to assist.

Peace

However, unlike most religions, within Islam there are certain provisions under which lying is not simply tolerated, but actually encouraged. The book "The spirit of Islam," by the Muslim scholar, Afif A. Tabbarah was written to promote Islam. On page 247, Tabbarah stated: "Lying is not always bad, to be sure; there are times when telling a lie is more profitable and better for the general welfare, and for the settlement of conciliation among people, than telling the truth. To this effect, the Prophet says: 'He is not a false person who (through lies) settles conciliation among people, supports good or says what is good."

Gal 1:8   But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.

Gal 1:9   As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.

Gal 1:10   For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

Gal 1:11   But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man .

Now we see what the Bible expressly says of false prophets like MO

There is no absolute truth,one thing is for sure history repeats itself,the history of the time of christ was copying the history that preceded it,the egyptian history but with amendments which is normal because time change,it's just us that are refusing to change,we just want to remain in past while the world is moving on,if christ was here in the 21st century,i bet he  will be in the house with a diffrent mentallity though,peace.

The bible is edited to suit the need of the propagators,don't get me wrong,it is a good book if you understand it just like any other good book,you got to be the principal actor for you to benefit from it,be the one that is.

watch him return with steam from his ears hopefully with the original Torah and Injil which Allah has woefully failed to preserve and produce

@babs787,

The Qur'an was WRONG in its allegations against the Bible. If you can't take it, then please provide the original TORAH, INJIL and PSALMS that the Qur'an boasted about that no Muslim (including Muhammad) has ever set eyes on.

Even then, if the Bible is not complete because the books of Jehu and Gad, etc. are not in it; is the Qur'an complete when it does not have the TORAH, INJIL or PSALMS? The Allah of the Qur'an claimed to have sent down, revealed, and confirmed those books - WHERE ARE THEY? And if they are not in the Qur'an, does that make it any better than the Bible for not including the books of Jehu, Gad, etc.?

Until you provide the same books that the Qur'an boasts that Allah sent down, no one is to take Muhammad's tales seriously. The Qur'an is hugely deficient for making such a claim and yet NOT including those books in the same Qur'an you read.

@babs787, WHERE ARE THE TORAH, INJIL AND PSALMS IN THE QURAN??

The bible is complete. No one should add or substract from it, either king James version or NIV the bible its still the same word of God.

Let us be careful so we won't be misled, i was once told really that KJV, NIV, The Amplified version etc are incomplete bible. The man said Bible was originally written in jew's language and interpreted to english by king James, that King James did not finished the interpretation before his death, while other interpreter continued from where King James stopped like the one Ismael was refering to. The word of God is really complete regardless of the interpreter.
