When I say new Bible I am referring to the Quran. Granted, it is not a direct translation of the Bible but it does dispute teachings within the Bible and thus retranslates the Bible from afar.
As far as the JW's Bible, it is very close to the original translation of the Bible except for areas that refer to the trinity or imply the trinity. They edit thos inal Bible, rather, they simply refer to the new Bible as the more enlightened addition. LOL.
Although what you say about Quran is far from the truth, because there is no any similarity between Quran and the Bible between your hands even in the Major hestorical facts.
As Muslims we belive that Quran is the Word of Allah (GOD). As well we belive that the Torah of Mosses and Gospel of Jesus both are words of Allah (GOD). As the three books are from the same source they should agreed on main concepts like the Unity of Allah and that he is the only one to be worshiped.
But can you tell me today that the Torah exist today is the same one that Allah give to Mosses or the Gospels exist today can be referenced to Jesus himself. I doute you can do that. And that is the main point.
The spirt of Quran is totaly different from the Bible.
There is a very important point that make Quran very different. Quran is written in Arabic. And only accepted as a word of GOD in Arabic. Any translation of Quran is not considered Quran but just a translation. And the Quran any Muslim knows today is exactly the same one that was revealed to the Prophet from Allah word by word.
There is a verse in Quran say:
YUSUFALI: We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption).
PICKTHAL: Lo! We, even We, reveal the Reminder, and lo! We verily are its Guardian.
SHAKIR: Surely We have revealed the Reminder and We will most surely be its guardian.
As you can see Allah himself is responsible from keeping the message of Quran from corruption and guess what, no one for 1400 years managed to modifiy a single word of the Quran.
Can you say something like that about the Bible?
