Muslims claim that the Bible foretells of Muhammad. To arrive at this idea, Muslims quote Moses' words that foretell of a prophet greater than himself. Muslims believe this verse foretells of Muhammad. Consider Moses' words as follows:
"I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him" (Deuteronomy 18:18).
The problem is that Muhammad could not foretell the future. The Einstein Method supports this conclusion at a high confidence level. But Moses did foretell the future. If a greater prophet than Moses is to appear after Moses, then that prophet must accurately and consistently foretell the future. The prophet Isaiah has a challenge for false prophets as follows.
" . . . declare to us the things to come, tell us what the future holds, so we may know" (Isaiah 41:23).
Since Muhammad did not foretell the future, he fails the test of a true prophet. Moses' prophecy of a future greater prophet could be made to mean anyone. To understand what Moses meant requires ALL the scriptures. However, Daniel's prophecy is very specific. Even the time is given when the Messiah will appear. Jesus is the only person that meets the requirements found in both Daniel and Moses.
The Dead Sea Scrolls confirm that the book of Daniel has not been changed. Let's move forward to address other Muslim misgivings about the Christian faith. Muslims believe that Islam is the final revelation of God to humanity.
