Quran is not old but provides light to the mankind perpetually. It may be called incidental because the followers of the other religions have made changes in the original text of the Scriptures. More over those scriptures were for the communities like Bible (Old Testament and New Testament) was for the children of Israel (Jacob) and not for the entire humanity.

Quran was revealed for the whole mankind.

"The month of Ramadan is one in which we sent down the Quran, a guidance for the mankind, and clear proofs of guidance, and the discrimination. ..."

(Quran 2:185)

It requires the Holy Prophet Mohammad (and his followers) to spread the message:

Call towards thy Lord's path with wisdom and with goodly exhortation. And refute them in the best way. Surely He, thy Lord, knows him the best who loses His path. And He knows best those who are guided.

(Quran 16:125)

This type of narration is repeatedly found in Quran so that mankind is guided to the path of God and rewarded with His blessings in this world and in the hereafter as this is the last revelation by the Lord for the mankind. There is not going to be any prophet afer Mohammad to guide the humanity.

Mohammad is not the father of any of you men, but (he is) a messenger of God and the seal of the prophets; And God knows all things.

(Quran 33:40)

One may say that why there is not going to be any more prophets and the same has been replied by the God.

... This day, the unbelievers have despaired of your religion, then fear them not, but fear me.

This day, have I perfected for you our faith, and completed my blessings upon you, and have accepted for you Al-Islam as a religion; ...

(Quran 5:3)

So Quran was incidental as there did not exist a Complete Code for The Mankind. With the revelation of Quran, there is no room left for any other message from God. Quran is the Message and Al-Islam is the Religion for the humanity for all times to come.
