    If i understand that word "Quranic rasm" correctly ..   is it not just an Arabic text without those those  dots and dashes ?

    "Quranic rasm"  is an Arabic text without those dots and dashes .

    Quote
    unless you remove all bible rasam verses...that you see in Quran...


    There's no Bible verses in the "Quranic rasm"  There is a rewriting of Biblical themes (AT and NT); sometimes genuine (as a rewriting) sometimes not, meaning recounts a same episode but without the same words; it is not (therefore) a textual borrowing.

    This is not primarily as a result of the fact that the Arab  Christian historical legacy has been overcome by Islam. Rather, unlike other early Christian  communities, the Bible was never translated into the vernacular of the Arabs.

    Reinink (1990) on Pseudo-Methodius and Edessene Apocalypse and more:

    https://t.co/GpxobNNNdv

    Interesting to read Reininks work in comparison with Martinez' (1985) study on these apocalypses:

    http://www.arzobispodegranada.es/index.php?mod=articulos&lan=es&sec=5&cat=11&id=516

    First remarks:
    • Reinink sees a composition date of Edessene A. around 693 AD, Martiniez 1246 AD
    • Reinink sees an "undoubtable"allusion to the muslim civil war, while Martinez overlooks it, and I don't see it when I read the translation
    • Reinink sees these apocalypses written in reaction to the building of the Dome of the Rock. If that was so. why didn't these texts make an "undoubtable"allusion to this building?

    Lesson of the day: Always check the sources before fully believing a scholar?

    Altara,

    The complete file is there and very handily organised I must say. Important to keep in mind that there is an abbreviation file...

    Pseudo Metodius and Edessene A are both there and analysed. Very readable work of Martinez.

     well Altara  this statement .......... "Bible  is translated in Arabic after the Quran emergence"  .... that is a loaded statement which deserves attention..  well Bible means TONS OF BOOKS ... not just story (surah Maryam)from Luke–Acts  which were taken rewritten from  that  Gospel of Mark ..... a source for the narrative of Christ's earthly life, ...... well that is a  lot of different problem..

    So I agree with you that Bible  ..whole bible books are translated in Arabic after the Quran ...   but stories ..or few pages of bible ....that you see in bible which were compiled in to Quran   must have been there in Arabic rasam.. literature whatever  in written form   before they became part of Quran..

    the other possibility is .. original bible stories  that we see in "Luke–Acts"  or in   Gospel of Mark  were first written in Greek . and Greeks were all over middle east at that time.,  So any Arab Christian  _WHICH I THINK IS THE FIRST Quran  WRITER .. the so-called  verses in  Meccan surajhs)) writer who had access and knowledge to Bible stories put  that in  Quran...,

    So in short I say there was either another  book /  or a bible story booklets  in Arabic .... whether it is called Quran.. or whatever other name .,  and that must have been there  before this 114 chapter book became  a rubber stamp of the faith Islam..  So my questions on the assumptions of Academics that Quran was the first book that was ever written in Arabic  will continue ....

    Muhammad. PDF file by  Maxime Rodinson

    That book is from Maxime Rodinson.. was a great guy  every one kicked him out of the every political party he joined...  Communists.. nationalists..  rightists..leftists .. everyone kicked him out ...

    Quote
    Maxime Rodinson (1915–2004), the great French Orientalist, Marxist sociologist, author (most famously) of Muhammad (1961) and Islam and Capitalism (1966). Born in Paris to radical Jewish working-class parents, Ashkenazi Jews, who were among the earliest members of the French Communist Party in 1920. They were both murdered in Auschwitz in 1943. Rodinson himself was a member of the party from 1937 to 1958 when he was expelled, having repudiated its evasive stance on Zionism and “exasperated by the restrictions imposed on our thought and research by the intellectual and other cadres of the party”. (In France in the fifties, he says, “it was impossible to publish an article or book, or to make a film, in which the Arabs appeared as at least having some grounds for complaint about Zionist Jews”. The Communist Party refused to rock this boat for fear of losing votes.)

    ................  So my questions on the assumptions of Academics that Quran was the first book that was ever written in Arabic  will continue .... ........


    well  Altara,    I will take your response on its face value but search and questions will continue..

    So in essence what Altara saying is "There was no written page in Arabic language or in any one of those Pre-Islamic Arabic scripts that were close to Arabic language which were present in Pre-Islamic Arabian peninsula ((  that is before say April 22, 571 AD .. The birth day of Prophet of Islam )) ON THE STORIES OF BIBLE (OT & NT)"

    well that is what he says ..  dear Altara ..... did I understand your words  "It should not"  accurately  ...

    Altara,

    The Edessene Apocalypse (EA) mentions Mecca, the pseudo Methodius (PM) mentions Yatrib. If dating indeed 694, that would be first mention of Mecca, half a century before the next one , the Spanish Chronicle, 740.

     Reply #7134 - July 18, 2019, 08:44 AM

    End of 7th  c. "Mecca" "exists", (but not before).  Yatrib is in the Quranic texts and soon will be called "Medina" due to the elaboration (from those texts) of the califal entourage who try to understand the story around the figure to whom God is speaking in the text.

    Why not. It shows only that the "Mecca" depicted by later Muslim tradition (Ibn Ishaq, etc) never existed before Islam... That this story is a fake (but not a plot...) Therefore that it is a later construction.
    That what I always thought. And it is what allows to put aside this story to search the history of the origin of the Quranic texts.
