MUHAMMAD IN THE BIBLE

I

The idea that the Bible contains prophecies about the coming of Muhammad (peace be upon him), may surprise many people. It isn’t di cult to understand why, since the general perception people have of Muhammad (pbuh) is that of a man with no connection to Biblical Prophets or prophecies. However, taking a closer look at Muhammad’s (pbuh) life, it becomes clear that he upheld the basic tenets that the Biblical Prophets came with, and led millions to do the same. Indeed it was because of the teachings of Muhammad (pbuh) that billions of Muslims since his time up until today have revered the persons of Jesus, Moses and Abraham (peace be upon them all). In this booklet, you will discover how both the Old and New Testament contain numerous verses which describe the coming of a new Prophet. Additionally, verses from the Bible itself will clearly show us that Muhammad (pbuh) is that Prophet.

John confessed (he didn’t deny but confessed), “I’m not the Christ.” They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” John said, “I’m not.” “Are you the prophet?”

“Who are you?”

John answered, “No.” (John 1:19-21)

So they then asked him, “Why do you baptize if you aren’t the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?” (John 1:25)

I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him. (Deuteronomy 18:18-19)

The priests were expecting three people as prophesied by their

    Muhammad's Rise Muhammad originates from the Arabian Peninsula, which at his time was a barren wasteland.
