Once again...

Deuteronomy 18:15-19 (rsv)

(Clearly Jesus) The LORD your God will raise up for YOU a prophet LIKE ME from among you, from YOUR brethren--him you shall heed--

(Clearly Mohammed) I will raise up for THEM a prophet LIKE YOU from among THEIR brethren; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. And whoever will not give heed to my words which he shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him.

(Clearly Jesus) for YOU, like ME, from YOUR brethren

(Clearly Mohammed) for THEM, like YOU, from THEIR brethren

Acts 3:22 (rsv)
Moses said, `The Lord God will raise up for YOU a prophet from YOUR brethren as he raised ME up. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you.

(Clearly Jesus) for YOU, like ME, from YOUR brethren

Acts 7:37 (rsv)
This is the Moses who said to the Israelites, `God will raise up for YOU a prophet from YOUR brethren as he raised ME up.'

(Clearly Jesus) for YOU, like ME, from YOUR brethren

No mention of Mohammed in Acts? Why? Because he hadn't come yet!

Clearly TWO different Prophets...

Why are you having such a hard time grasping this? ;)
Submitting....
