Who is that Prophet that is to come?

Published by Elder K. Clark

This article is the result of a conversation I had with a Muslim over whether Muhammad is found in the bible. This discussion start with the Muslim fellow asserting that Moses prophecy of the prophet like unto himself is fulfilled in Muhammad. Below is my rely to the Muslim claims.

(John 1:45) Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

(John 6:13-14) Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten. Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

(Act 3:20-24) And he (God) shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, (speaking of Jesus) A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. –Apostle Peter.

There are many biblical witnesses testifying that Jesus was that prophet spoken by all the prophets before him. I’d really like to see scriptures from the Quran supporting these claims from the Muslim world.  If Mohammad is the fulfillment of Moses prophecy then it ought to be plainly written in the Quran as it is in the bible about Jesus. “Out of the Mouth of TWO or THREE witnesses let every word be confirmed”. Don’t post mysterious verses I want to see it as plain as it is stated in the bible about Jesus. If you can’t produce these scriptures from the Quran then your claim is just a worthless claim.

Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. (John 5:39)

Search the scriptures? The scriptures mention by Jesus are those writing by Moses and the other prophets up unto the time of his life. Jesus commanding us to search Moses and the Prophets because they testify of him. Simple enough right? But what is Jesus really saying? Jesus is declaring that all the scriptures speak of him. Besides Jesus, no other prophet has ever claimed to be the center of all prophecy.

Jesus also said, Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. (Matthew 5:17)

Pay close attention, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets” . Think not that I’ve come to destroy what Moses and the prophets said, no, not to destroy but to fulfill. Again Jesus claims to have come to fulfill the things written by Moses and the prophets. The Muslim community wants us to believe Mohammad was the fulfillment and final prophet. But what did Jesus say when it was asked was he the last prophet?

Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? (Mat 11:2-3)

Notice the question, “Art thou “HE” that should come”. This means the people was looking for ONE to come not two or three. They were looking for one great messenger and after him there would be no other, and if Christ was “HE” then there was no need to continue to look. So Jesus, “Art thou “HE” that should come or do we look for another”? Jesus answered: Go and tell John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.

This may not make sense to the average person. However, Jesus was quoting Isaiah 35 which says “Strengthen you the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees. Say to them that are of a fearful heart, be strong, and fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with recompense; he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.” (Isaiah 35:3-6)

Jesus quote Isaiah to comfort John the baptizer that he was the last messenger that would establish the way of God before God‘s final return (please read Isaiah 35). How so? Because Isaiah and Moses spoke of the same messenger that would come. The scriptures all point to ONE messenger “HE” not them. Now let’s look closer at some of the illusions the Muslim community assumes is speaking of Mohammad.

(1 Deuteronomy 18:18) I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

What does the bible say about this scripture and the fulfillment  of it?

(John 1:45) Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

(John 6:13-14) Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten. Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.”

(Act 3:20-24) And he (God) shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, (speaking of Jesus) A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. –Apostle Peter

Before Mohammad was born the Apostles was preaching that Jesus was the fulfillment of the writing of Moses. So who should we believe? Writing that were written in the 1st two centuries by the Apostles and followers of Jesus or those writing of men 700 years after the death of Christ by the follower of Mohammad?
