Reader comment on item: The Enemy Has a Name

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 it will be clear, this prophecy does not befit him, but rather is more deserving of Muhammad. Moses in the Torah foretold the following: like unto thee

who is like Moses - Jesus or Mohammad - let us see

  1. Birth - Moses - Normal Birth Jesus - Miraculous Birth Mohammad - Normal Birth
  2. Mission - Moses - Prophet only Jesus - said to be Son of God Mohammad - Prophet only
  3. Parents - Moses - father & Mother Jesus - mother only Mohammad - father& mother
  4. Family life- Moses-married & children Jesus- never married Mohammad - Married & children
  5. accepted - Moses - Accepted by Jews Jesus - Jews rejected Mohammad - Arabs accepted
  6. authority - Moses - had political auth. Jesus - refused auth. Mohammad - had political auth.
  7. victorious- Moses - pharaoh drowned Jesus - said to be crucified Mohammad - defeated Meccans
  8. Death - Moses - natural death Jesus - claimed crucified Mohammad - natural death
  9. Burial - Moses - buried in grave Jesus - said "empty tomb" Mohammad- buried in grave
  10. Divinity - Moses - Not divine Jesus - said to be divine Mohammad - not divine
  11. mission age - Moses - 40 Jesus - 30 Mohammad - 40
  12. resurrection - Moses - not Jesus - Yes Mohammad - not

It is clear that moses is like Mohammad, it is not jesus like mohammad
