Does the Qur’an Hold in Valid­i­ty in Stat­ing that the Torah was Lost or Corrupted ?

I have been read­ing with inter­est the last few exchanges regard­ing the read­ing of Jere­mi­ah 8:8.

JEREMIAH 8:8
How can you say ; We are wise, and the Law of the Lord is with us’? But, behold, the false pen of the scribes has made it into a lie’ ”

Note : When­ev­er you see that term Law of the Lord’, the Hebrew word is Torah

To me with all due respect to my Chris­t­ian brethren, I think what is stat­ed is crys­tal clear. This will also hope to explain, insha’al­lah, why Jesus(P) was always so hard on the scribes.

I think for those who don’t believe that the Torah was lost to pos­ter­i­ty at one time would do good to read the fol­low­ing, insha’allah.

2 KINGS 22:8
And Hiil-kiah, the high priest,said unto Shaphan, the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the Lord. And Hil-kiah gave the book to Sha phan, and he read it.”

The acces­sion of Josi­ah and his eager­ness to restore the wor­ship of Jeho­vah led to the ren­o­va­tion of the Tem­ple, and in the course of this, B.C. 621, the book of Deuteron­o­my was dis­cov­ered. The priest took it to the king, who joy­ful­ly wel­comed it and set about putting its pro­gram of reli­gious ref­or­ma­tion into effect. The dra­mat­ic sto­ry is told in 2 Kings 22 and 23. Josi­ah put a stop to the idol­a­trous prac­tices of the peo­ple…Edgar J. Good­speed, How Came the Bible ?, pp. 22 – 23

The Holy Qur’an is not the only Book claim­ing that some pre­vi­ous scrip­ture was lost. The Bible does, on occa­sion, men­tion some books now lost to posterity.

Some exam­ples are :

NUMBERS 21:14
Where­fore it is said in the BOOK OF THE WARS OF THE LORD, What He did in the Red Sea, and in the brooks of Arnon…”

Has any­one dur­ing an arche­o­log­i­cal dig found this lit­tle gem ?

JOSHUA10:13
“…Is this not writ­ten in the BOOK OF JASHER?”

Does any­one know where this book is ?

I KINGS 11:41
And the rest of the acts of Solomon, and all that he did, and his wis­dom, are not writ­ten in the BOOK OF THE ACTS OF SOLOMON?”

Could some­one let me know where this book is ?

1 CHRONICLES 29:29
Now the acts of David the king, first and last, behold, they are writ­ten a BOOK OF SAMUEL THE SEER, and in the BOOK OF NATHAN THE PROPHET, and in the BOOK OF GAD THE SEER…”

Does any­one know where I may find these orig­i­nal books ? Where are these above-men­tioned books ?Endmark
