ISLAM & THE BIBLE
The purpose of this page is to explore some Muslim misunderstandings regarding the Word of God..

DID MOSES PROPHESY OF MUHAMMAD?

Some Muslims suggest that one of the most blessed prophecies of the promised Messiah in the Old Testament, so well recognized by Christians and Jews, is instead a prophecy of Mohammed. We find on the internet for example:

"The Biblical prophecies on the advent of the Prophet Muhammad are evidence of the truth of Islam for people who believe in the Bible.

In Deuteronomy 18, Moses stated that God told him..."

He quotes Deuteronomy 18:18-19 and then goes on to say:

"From these verses we conclude that the prophet in this prophecy must have the following three characteristics:

1) That he will be like Moses.
2) That he will come from the brothers of the Israelites, i.e. the Ishmaelites.
3) That God will put His words in to the mouth of this prophet and that he will declare what God commands him."

Considering his behavior, the first suggestion that Mohammed was in some way like Moses would certainly be a surprise to Jews and Christians, but let's explore the prior contentions in the light of scripture. The subject verses he cites are:

(KJV) 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. 19 And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require [it] of him.

2) That he will come from the brothers of the Israelites, i.e. the Ishmaelites.

Can that claim be supported?

Genesis 21:12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.

We can see unambiguously that "in Isaac shall thy seed be called" - not Ishmael.
Their claim can also be easily set aside by exploring this fulfilled prophecy in the New Testament through Jesus' own declaration that He came as the prophet that Moses wrote of:

John 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. 47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

And again in Acts 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, 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. 23 And it shall come to pass, [that] every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

In an effort to declare Mohammed as the subject in a prophecy that belongs to the Messiah, the author has unwittingly guided us to scripture that specifically condemns those that hold that belief by not hearing the actual prophesied prophet, Jesus Christ.

Indeed Mohammed was, and taught, the direct opposite of Jesus Christ. We will explore this in more depth further down the page.

"...SLAY THEM BEFORE ME."

Some Muslims try to find a parallel between Jesus and Mohammed, by suggesting that Jesus was involved in violence, by quoting the following scripture:

Luke 19:27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay [them] before me.

So how could the same Jesus make the above statement who made the following one:

Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Or this one:

Mark 12:30  And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment. 31 And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Does one verse abrogate the other as verses in 71 out of only 114 suras in the Quran do?
brotherpete.com/index.php?topic=116.0

We will see that few things more thoroughly illustrate the unregenerate nature, of those that quote Luke 19:27, as a means to falsely accuse Jesus. But that's just as prophecied:

2Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

So how are the verses to be reconciled? Luke 19:27 marks the end of a parable, or story that Jesus told to illustrate a point He is making to His Apostles. Jesus is quoting the words of the nobleman that is a character in that parable.
brotherpete.com/index.php?topic=123.0

Jesus spoke in parables for exactly the same reason that we find unregenerates accusing Him.
Here is how Jesus explained His use of parables to His Apostles:

Mark 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all [these] things are done in parables: 12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and [their] sins should be forgiven them.

The accusers of Jesus are desperately searching for the opposite of truth. Even though our loving Savior is exhaustively described through the Word of God, as a perfect and sinless man that healed the blind, lame and leper, and even raised the dead. Thus their accusation is a manifestation of the spirit of antichrist - being against Christ.

It is as if those false accusers put a sign on their forehead declaring that they are determined to remain unconverted, and prefer to die with their sins, just to spite Jesus.

Are you an accuser too? It isn't too late to repent. You could die tomorrow - even today.
Then it would be too late. Forever is a very long time.

"I CAME NOT TO SEND PEACE, BUT A SWORD."

Some Muslims quote the following verse again to try to accuse Jesus of being violent, like Mohammed and his imperialistic conquest and slaughter of caravan plunder, murder, and the Islamic First Jihad:

Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

Again, how can the same Jesus that instructs us to "love your enemies" make a statement like this?

What does Jesus mean by a "sword"?

Revelation 2:16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Revelation 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

The same also constitutes part of the armament of Christians:

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Here is why we find that most exMuslim testimonies recount that they were saved by simply having picked up a bible and started reading:

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

"...PEACE ON EARTH? ... NAY; BUT RATHER DIVISION:"

Some cite this verse in an effort to reflect negatively on Jesus Christ.
But who does their random out-of-context citing of it, actually reflect negatively on through their effort?

Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

The passage continues: 52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

This division is, of course, between the saved and the lost. The regenerate and the unregenerate. Those in the kingdom of God and those outside in the kingdoms of this world. As the verse suggests we find this division sometimes even within the same family.

In some families to the extreme. Here is an example of a father in Basra who stood on his daughter's neck as he started stabbing her. People shouted for her brothers whereupon they rushed to the aid of their sister. Then when their father told them why he was doing what he was doing, and the two brothers helped their father kill their sister. Her transgression?

"Seventeen-year-old Rand Abdel-Qader told her best friend how she had fallen for Paul, a 22-year-old she met at a charity where she worked as a volunteer.

When her father learned she had been seen speaking to a foreigner he rushed home and butchered her, strangling and stabbing her while screaming that he was "cleansing his honour."

"Her funeral was done without any of the traditional mourning because she was deemed 'impure'. Her uncles were said to have spat on her body."

Rather than the exception, this is quite common in the Islamic world.

Yahoo: Basra honor killing.
$100 per hit.

Here is a mother in Canada that punched her son in the nose and broke it for converting to Christianity. Later on she put out a hit on him and he was thrown over a 4th floor mall railing.

Jesus brought DIVISION - INDEED!

THE TERM "BEGOTTEN" WAS ADDED LATER

Some Muslims claim that the terms "begotten" and "beget" when used in conjunction with God and Jesus were changed, or added later. It seems odd that Muslims would question this since they believe that Jesus is the only person in the entire history of mankind, to be conceived by a virgin, by the will of God.

Suggestion that there was tampering with the Word of God in general, is unsupportable since we have over 5300 partial or complete manuscripts of Godís Word that were penned prior to 300AD, in virtually every language that was known to man, that were read all over the known world.
Changing them all after the fact would be quite a task indeed.
"Manuscript Errors?"

Even hundreds of years after the record of God was firmly established Mohammed wrote:

Sura 4:136 O ye who believe! Believe in Allah and His Messenger, and the scripture which He hath sent to His Messenger and the scripture which He sent to those before (him). Any who denieth Allah, His angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Day of Judgment, hath gone far, far astray.

Yet many modern Muslims don't hesitate to blaspheme the prophets and apostles and God's book, without reservation, in spite of even their own prophet Mohammed's instruction.

Let's look at the specific terms "begat" and "begotten". There are 10 verses that use the term begotten or begat in regard to Jesus Christ.
The begotten Son of God

For example:

1John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

If the virgin Mary conceived Jesus, by the will God, then who was Jesus' Father?
There are 245 verses in the Word of God that declare God the Father.
God the Father

Since "violence begets violence" for example does that mean that violence had to have sex with violence?
The reference to "Him that begat" is of course a reference to God and "that is begotten of him" to Jesus Christ, and his having been conceived in a virgin, by the will of God. Of course nothing to do with God actually having sex with Mary, yet Mary did conceive God's only begotten Son. Muslims believe Jesus was uniquely created, from all other people born in the history of the world, in just this manner. Many would say that God said "be" and Mary conceived Jesus.

Next lets explore the Koine Greek - the lingua franca of the first century - and language of the New Testament, from the Textus Receptus, or majority Greek Text.
The Greek word translated as "begat" from Strong's definitions:

him that begat
New Testament Greek Definition:
1080 gennao {ghen-nah'-o}
from a variation of 1085; TDNT - 1:665,114; v
AV - begat 49, be born 39, bear 2, gender 2, bring forth 1,
be delivered 1, misc 3; 97
1) of men who fathered children
1a) to be born
1b) to be begotten
1b1) of women giving birth to children
2) metaph.
2a) to engender, cause to arise, excite
2b) in a Jewish sense, of one who brings others over to his
way of life, to convert someone
2c) of God making Christ his son
2d) of God making men his sons through faith in Christ's work

We can see from the word count that the Greek word "gennao" is translated as "begat" 49 times in the King James bible.
To make the claim that it is translated wrong in the above verse would obviously require that all 49 instances of it were translated wrong because "gennao" is the same Greek word used in each instance.

COMFORTER - SPIRIT OF TRUTH - MUHAMMAD?

Based on Mohammed's deeds as bequeathed to us by the books of Islam it's pretty difficult to picture him in the role of any kind of "comforter". Let's explore some scripture and see if there is any validity to a claim that he is expressed that way in God's Word.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

The "Comforter" is the Holy Ghost. With the masculine gender assigned. The above difinitive statement is unambiguous. Additionally, when Jesus is speaking to the Apostles He declares:

John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Not leave them comfortless for one minute, let alone 500 years.


What about the "Spirit of truth"? Is that Mohammed? Hard for a Christian to imagine since Mohammed was, and taught, the exact opposite of Jesus Christ and the new covenant. But let's see:

John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

Now we already saw this "Comforter" described specifically as the Holy Ghost. The next verse:

17 [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

So we find the Comforter, or Holy Ghost, is used synomously with "Spirit of truth". It continues, the "world" cannot receive, because it "seeth him not". This first century "world" that can't "see" the Spirit of truth, in context, refers to those outside of the kingdom of God, or those not "born again".

The kingdoms of this world have been Satan's legal property ever since Adam's fall. No surprise that conquest and rule of these earthly kingdoms has been the 1400 year goal of Islam. From the Islamic First Jihad, to Ahmadinejad - "Islam will someday rule all the mountain tops of the world". The dar el salaam conquest of the dar el harb.

The "world" can't see him, and our verse goes on:

17 [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

Jesus is addressing the Apostles and declaring that they already "know him", in the present tense. How could they "know" Mohammed 500 years before he was born?

How did Mohammed "dwelleth with" the Apostles 500 years before he was born?

How would Mohammed come to "be in" the Apostles?
Patently absurd.

1Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

GOD IN US. That's what being "born again" is all about.

From all of the above we can see how transparently preposterous is any claim that Mohammed could have anything to do with the term "Comforter" or "Spirit of truth".



In spite of the obvious, sorely deluded bible-ignorant minions, of famous Greek sophist styled deceivers like Deedat, suggest that because there is reference to the Holy Ghost/Spirit, earlier in the New Testament, and Jesus says He is yet to send another Comforter and Spirit of truth to the Apostles, when specifically addressing them, that somehow all of the scripture above can be nullified through the convenience of a false presumption. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God as sent in Jesus' name:

John 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Further study reveals specific function. God's Spirit is one of the ways He manifest Himeslf to us. The first mention of His Spirit is in the second verse in all of scripture:

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Here we find the Spirit of God functioning in creation.

Exodus 31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,

Here we find the Spirit of God filling an Old Testament saint in a manner not dissimilar to descriptions in the New Testament. This passage includes specific reference to the functions of wisdom, understanding, knowledge and workmanship.

Though Muslims are loathe to admit it, even Mohammed taught in regard to this second part, of a triune Godhead:

Sura 32:9 But He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him something of His spirit. And He gave you (the faculties of) hearing and sight and feeling (and understanding): little thanks do ye give!

The New Testament expresses God's Spirit as the Holy Ghost.

Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Here we find a virgin, Mary, that conceived a child of the Holy Ghost. Her function was to provide the vessel for Jesus Christ, who was God manifest, or revealed, to mankind in the flesh. The only such conception by a virgin in the history of mankind as Muslims agree. Yet stunningly some insist Jesus was just another prophet.

Luke 1:41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: 42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed [art] thou among women, and blessed [is] the fruit of thy womb.

Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost, the function causing her to speak a specific declaration.

Luke 1:67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, 68 Blessed [be] the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,

Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost for the function of prophesying.

Now the Apostles got into a serious funk when they learned that the man they had walked and talked with, and loved so dearly, was going to be killed.
So the function of the Spirit that Jesus said was yet to come unto the Apostles? To provide Comfort. Also to secure the truth.

John 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Jesus taught the Apostles while He was with them, and frequently reminded them of things that He had told them previously. The coming Spirit would provide the same function that Jesus had been performing personally. Specifically refered to as "another Comforter" - in place of Himself.

The Body of Christ has many parts. I am increasingly desperate for the 1.5 billion Muslims that Mohammed has so tragically deluded. I present the Word of God to Muslims, as well as to an eschatologically challenged church, that would seem to be blind to their plight - at least in the West.

1John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship [is] with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

 NO SWORD? - SELL YOUR GARMENT AND BUY ONE

Some Muslims falsely pin violence on Jesus to try to bring Him down to the level of Mohammed's murder and mayhem by suggesting that Jesus acted similiarly, by citing the following passage:

Luke 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take [it], and likewise [his] scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. 37 For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end. 38 And they said, Lord, behold, here [are] two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

Is it reasonable to suggest that two swords would be sufficient to accomplish bloody imperialistic slaughter like Mohammed's First Jihad? Or would even be sufficient to plunder a caravan? Perhaps two would only be enough swords to accomplish something like the murder poets in their sleep, as was done at Mohammed's behest. With one woman asleep with a child at her breast.

So why did Jesus make the request? The bible, Old Testament and New, is full of lessons. Sometimes obscured in parables and sometimes more apparent. This lesson would seem more apparent when we see how the swords were used. A few verses later, as the guards came to haul Jesus off we read:

Luke 22:49 When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword? 50 And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. 51 And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

Why would Jesus express His love by healing one of the very men who came to haul Him off to be killed?

Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others]? do not even the publicans so? 48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

We can see Jesus requested the swords for a real-time demonstration in how to love an enemy.

In the New Testament, the subject of which is the new covenant we are given through Jesus Christ, scour it as we might, we can't find anything that Jesus did more violent than overturning the tables of the moneychangers in His rebuke to them at the temple.

ISHMAEL SEED A PROPHET ACCORDING TO MOSES

Earlier we explored claims that Moses prophecy of a promised prophet was of Mohammed, but we found instead that it was not only a prophecy of Jesus, but went on to condemn those that don't hear Jesus words but instead follow Mohammed. The writer's claim regarding these verses:

"2) That he will come from the brothers of the Israelites, i.e. the Ishmaelites."

(KJV) 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. 19 And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require [it] of him.

Ishmael was the  son of Abraham, from his wife Sarah's handmaiden, Hagar. In Abraham's day, carrying on a man's name, or lineage, was so important, that if a wife was barren, it wasn't unusual for the husband to have a child by the wife's handmaiden, to be raised as the son of the husband and wife.

Sarah encouraged Abraham to have a son with her handmaid Hagar because Sarah thought herself to be barren because of her advanced age. Later on the Lord did allow Sarah to bear a son for Abraham, that they named Isaac. As the story developed:

Genesis 21:8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the [same] day that Isaac was weaned. 9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking. 10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, [even] with Isaac.

Abraham not only sent Hagar away, but also Ishmael, thereby disowning him. God eased any doubts regarding what Abraham had done at Sarah's request:

Genesis 21:12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.

What else can we learn about Ishmael?

Genesis 16:11 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou [art] with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. 12 And he will be a wild man; his hand [will be] against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.

And so it has conspicuously been, with the more recent 1400 year historical record, of the seed of Abraham's abandoned son Ishmael. Their hand against every man, that is, against every non-Muslim. The dar el salaam conquest of the dar el harb.

From the bloody rape, pillage and plunder of the imperialistic conquest of nearly the whole known world, of the Islamic First Jihad, to the over 12,000 deadly Islamic terror attacks around the world, just since 9-11.

Muslims go on to correctly claim that in the seed of Abraham all nations of the earth will be blessed:

Genesis 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

That obedience was expressed when God asked Abraham to take Isaac up onto a mount to sacrifice him, and Abraham was willing to do so, simply because his faith was so great. But the Lord spared Isaac and Abraham sacrificed a ram instead.

The fruit of Islam should dispel any such notion that the blessing of the Lord is in the seed of Ishmael, but again, through scripture. Earlier we found that claim of being called in Ishmael is the direct opposite of the actual case in the Old Testament, and now from the New Testament:

Hebrews 11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten [son],

Romans 9:6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they [are] not all Israel, which are of Israel: 7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, [are they] all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.

Galatians 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

Hebrews 11:9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as [in] a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

Indeed Mohammed was, and taught, the direct opposite of Jesus Christ.

MOHAMMED CAN BE FOUND IN SCRIPTURE

If the suggested prophecies of Mohammed coming as a promised prophet aren't in bible then it would seem Muslims are stuck with a stand alone, 6th century religion, recited by a single illiterate, that by his own early estimation met a demon in a cave, that he felt tried to squeeze the life out of him three times.
Christians understand the nature of Mohammed's encounter:

2Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

Just because the places where Muslims believe Mohammed to be in bible prophecy don't exist, does not mean that Mohammed is not to be found in bible prophecy. One first has to realize that Mohammed WAS and taught the EXACT OPPOSITE:

Surah 4:157  That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-

That single verse denies ALL of the New Testament prophets, apostles and it's WHOLE SUBJECT of the new covenant. The term "New Testament" is translated from the same Greek Word "diatheke {dee-ath-ay'-kay}" as is "new covenant".
Thus Christians know exactly where to find Mohammed in prophecy:

Matthew 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.   

But Mohammed even came as a ravening wolf.
The PERFECT OPPOSITE of Jesus in deed and book.
The most violent act of Jesus was overturning the tables of the moneychangers at the temple.
brotherpete.com/index.php?topic=148.0

But there has been no shortage of false prophets even within the church. It's no wonder Muslims may seem confused as to exactly what Christianity is, when they are familiarized with the precepts of men, rather than the Word of God.
beholdthebeast.com/traditional_framework.htm#cults

Jesus healed the lame so they could walk.
Mohammed brought lameness to the walking. "...they were brought, and he had their hands and feet cut off." video
Jesus brought sight to the blind.
Mohammed brought blindness to the seeing. "...he ordered for nails which were heated and passed over their eyes..."
Jesus brought the dead back to life.
Mohammed murdered the living. (video playlist)

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

But Mohammed cannot deceive Godís elect. Any so-called Christian "converts" to Islam are only those that deluded themselves into believing they had been Christian.

One of the most blessed verses in all of Christianity is:

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

No surprise then that Mohammed's answer is:
