For someone learned in the christian religion I would suggest you study the history of the christian scriptures you have today and where it came from and who compiled it. I would also suggest you open heartedly study Islam and the history of Muhammad. As far as the prophecy, God is speaking to Moses, I will raise them up a Prophet from among your brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak in my name all that I shall command him.

First of all the only way Jesus is like Moses is the fact that they were both of Jewish descent, other than that Jesus had a miracle birth and was born from a human mother only with no father, he did not marry, he did not have children and according to you Jesus is divine and is not buried on earth but rather was raised to God lastly while some of them accepted him he's own Jewish people the establishment (corrupt rabbis and priests) rejected him, Whilst Muhammad like moses had a natural birth with both mother and father, muhammad like moses married and had children and muhammad like moses was just a man chosen by God to spread the message of the one GOD,

In the end both Moses and Muhammad's followers accepted him, they both died natural deaths and are both buried on earth, so Muhammad was more like Moses than Jesus was, then the Brethren, Abraham had two sons Isaac and Ishmael, from Isaac's bloodline was eventually born Moses and from Ishmael's bloodline was born Muhammad, which means that the children of Ismael are the brethren Of Isaac from whom eventually was born Moses and the children of Isaac are the Brethren of Ismael and if you do your homework good sir the jews and muslims are cousins whom we are each others brethren. Then the prophecy says and I shall put my words in he's mouth,Muhammad was the unlettered prophet, in other words he could not read or write so when he received the revelation of the Quran, God sent Gabriel to teach Muhammad these words, they were not Muhammads so in essence God was placing he's words unto Muhammad and then also God tells Moses he shall speak in my name all that I command him,

Please tell me which of the two holy books The Bible or the Quran starts every chapter with the words (IN THE NAME OF GOD MOST GRACIOUS MOST MERCIFUL) Pick up a English translation of the Quran and see for yourself. Muhammad speaks only in GODS name,I am not trying to take anything away from the Messiah and have utmost respect and am grateful to him for what he has done and what he has yet to do, but whilst muslims respect and raise Jesus Christ and hold him in high esteem you belittle Muhammad who spread the exact message of Jesus and Moses without the change of a dot, "Say: He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him." And Jesus repeats over and over in the bible that there is only one to be worshiped and that is The father in heaven, the concept being the same as what Muhammad and all the prophets before him preached, pure monotheism, with that being said Mr Pipes I leave you with this verse from the only unaltered word of God left today.

O People of the Book! Do not go to excess in your religion. Say nothing but the truth about God. The Messiah, 'Jesus son of Mary, was only the messenger of God and His Word, which He cast into Mary, and a Spirit from Him. So believe in God and His messengers. Do not say, 'Three.' It is better that you stop. God is only One God. He is too Glorious to have a son! Everything in the heavens and in the Earth belongs to Him. God suffices as a Guardian. (Qur'an, 4:171)
