BIBLE PROPHECIES OF MUHAMMAD – Book Sample

Bible Prophecies of Muhammad Witnesses of Scholars

Preliminary Issues The Bible is the sacred

scripture of Judaism and Christianity. The Christian Bible consists of the Old Tes-tament and the New Testa-ment, with the Roman Catholic and Eastern Ortho-dox versions of the Old Tes-tament being slightly larger because of their acceptance of certain books not accepted as scripture by Protestants. The Jewish Bible includes only the books known to Christians as the Old Testament. Furthermore, the arrangements of the Jewish and Christian canons differ considerably.1 Prophet Muhammad has been prophesized in both the Old Testament and the New Tes-tament.

Jesus and the Apostles are believed to have spoken Aramaic. Aramaic continued in wide use until about AD 650, when it was supplanted by Arabic.2 The present day Bible is not, however, based on the Aramaic manuscripts, but on Greek and Latin ver-sions.

Quoting the Bible prophecies does not entail that Muslims ac-cept the present day Bible in its entirety as God’s revelation. For the Islamic belief on previous scriptures, please click here.

Acceptance of prophet

It is not a pre-condition of acceptance that a prophet be foretold by an earlier prophet. Moses was a prophet to Pharaoh even though he was not prophesized by anyone before him. Abraham was God’s prophet to Nimrod, yet no one prophesized his coming. Noah, Lot, and others were true prophets of God, yet they were not foretold.

The evidence of a prophet’s truth is not limited to old prophecies, but it includes the actual message brought by him, miracles and more.  Discussing prophecies is a delicate matter. It requires sifting through Bible versions and translations, recently discovered manu-scripts and searching out Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic words and investigating them.

The task becomes especially difficult when: “prior to the printing press (15th century), all copies of Bibles show textual variations.”3 This is not an easy subject for lay people. For this reason, the best testimony comes from ancient and modern experts in the area who acknowledged the prophecies.

We have records of early Jews and Christians, both monks and rabbis, who witnessed that Muhammad was the fulfillment of spe-cific Bible prophecies. The following are some examples of these people.

The Awaited Prophet – Bible Prophecies of Muhammad

Pre-Islam Jews and Christians of Arabia were awaiting a prophet. Before the appearance of Muhammad, Arabia was home to Jews, Christians, and pagan Arabs who, on occasion, went to war with each other. The Jews and Christians would say: “The time has come for the unlettered prophet to appear who will revive the religion of Abraham. We will join his ranks and wage fierce war against you.”  When Muhammad actually appeared, some of them believed in him, and some refused. This is why God re-vealed:

“And when there came to them a Book [Quran] from God con-firming that which was with them – although before they used to

pray for victory against those who disbelieved – but [then] when there came to them that which they recognized, they disbelieved in it; so the curse of God will be upon the disbelievers.” (Quran 2:89)

The first witness was Buhaira, the Christian monk, who recog-nized Muhammad’s prophethood when he was still young and told his uncle:

“…a great fortune lies before your nephew, so take him home quickly.”4

The second witness Waraqah – Bible Prophecies of Muhammad

The second witness was Waraqah bin Nawfal, a Christian scho-lar who died soon after a solitary meeting with Muhammad. Wara-qah attested Muhammad was the Prophet of his time and received revelation exactly like Moses and Jesus.5

The Jews of Medina were anxiously awaiting the arrival of a prophet. The third and fourth witnesses were their two famous Jewish rabbis, Abdullah bin Salam and Mukhayriq.6

The sixth and seventh witnesses were also Yemeni Jewish rab-bis, Wahb ibn Munabbih, and Ka’b al-Ahbar (d. 656 CE). Ka’b found long passages of praise and the description of the Prophet prophesized  by Moses in the Bible.7

The Quran states:

“Is it not a sign to them that the learned men of the Children of Israel knew it (as true)?” (Quran 26:197)

Old Testament Prophecies of Muhammad

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

Many Christians believe this prophecy foretold by Moses to be in regards to Jesus. Indeed Jesus was foretold in the Old Testament, but as will be clear, this prophecy does not befit him, but rather is more deserving of Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him. Moses foretold the following:

New Testament Prophecies of Muhammad  – Bible Prophecies of Muhammad

John 14:16  “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.” (Ameri-can Standard Version)

In this verse, Jesus promises that another “Comforter” will ap-pear, and thus, we must discuss some issues concerning this “Comforter.”

The Greek word paravklhtoß, ho parakletos, has been translated as ‘Comforter.’  Parakletos more precisely means ‘one who pleads another’s cause, an intercessor.’14  The ho parakletos is a person in the Greek language, not an incorporeal entity. In the Greek language, every noun possesses gender; that is, it is mascu-line, feminine or neutral. In the Gospel of John, Chapters 14, 15 and 16 the ho parakletos is actually a person.

All pronouns in Greek must agree in gender with the word to which they refer and the pronoun “he” is used when referring to the parakletos. The NT uses the word pneuma, which means “breath” or “spirit,” the Greek equivalent of ruah, the Hebrew word for “spirit” used in the OT. Pneuma is a grammatically neutral word and is always represented by the pronoun “it.”

The oldest bible – Bible Prophecies of Muhammad

All present day Bibles are compiled from “ancient manu-scripts,” the oldest dating back the fourth century C.E. No two an-cient manuscripts are identical.15  All Bibles today are produced by combining manuscripts with no single definitive reference. The Bible translators attempt to “choose” the correct version.

In other words, since they do not know which “ancient manuscript” is the correct one, they decide for us which “version” for a given verse to accept. Take John 14:26 as an example. John 14:26 is the only verse of the Bible which associates the Parakletos with the Holy Spirit. But the “ancient manuscripts” are not in agreement that the “Parakletos” is the ‘Holy Spirit.’  For instance, the famous Codex Syriacus, written around the fifth century C.E., and discovered in 1812 on Mount Sinai, the text of 14:26 reads; “Paraclete, the Spi-rit”; and not “Paraclete, the Holy Spirit.”

Spirit in biblical language

Why is it important?  It is significant because in biblical language a “spirit,” simply means “a prophet.”

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”16

It is instructive to know that several biblical scholars considered parakletos to be an ‘independent salvific (having the power to save) figure,’ not the Holy Ghost.17

The question, then, is: was Jesus’ parakletos, Comforter, a ‘Ho-ly Ghost’ or a person – a prophet – to come after him?  To answer the question, we must understand the description of ho parakletos and see if it fits a ghost or a human being.

When we continue reading beyond chapter 14:16 and chapter 16:7, we find that Jesus predicts the specific details of the arrival
