You said the following:

I can easily use that argument against you by saying that you misinterpret Isaiah to make it seem as if Muhammad is the one he is referring to.

I can also easily say that you misinterpret Isaiah 42 to make it seem like that it is prophecy for about the coming of Jesus.

You said the following:

"Unfortunately, the Muhammad's biography does not reflect his own teaching. He was known to insult the pagans was he not? He launched the attack, it was not retaliation."

No the pagans were attacking Muhammad (pbuh) and Muhammad (pbuh) did not make war without Allah's permission.

You said the following:

"What's your point? God does not like false prophets."

My point is this, some Jews in time of Jesus used verses like this to try and kill Jesus (pbuh).

You then said the following:

"Sorry, I meant 1500-400 BC.

Of course, of course. Let's first talk about how the Bible is written. For all the books, except Genesis and teaching books (Psalms, Proverbs, etc), the Bible is written in a historical way. The very first book was Genesis which was written by Moses, who also wrote the other 4 books of the Pentauch.

Critics say that the earliest writings before the 10th century BC. Remember, the OT was copied, so the earliest copy we have today may not even be the earliest. Also, the Bible's archaeology matches up with the timeline around it and we use that to date the Bible as well."

No the oldest Bible scripts are the dead sea scrolls which date about 300bce-70ad and they some believe that Moses (pbuh) may not have written the whole of the Torah.

servant of Christ believe me that some of Christian practices today are from pagan religions and the trinity is from the Hindu religion.

Then you said in one of your other comments this:

"However, can we agree that Jesus is prophesied much more than Muhammed. Again, I must acknowledge the bitter irony that you're using the prophecies of a so called ‘fallible book' to defend an ‘infallible religion'. Do we agree that Jesus is the Messiah? Or do you even acknowledge there being a Messiah at all?"

Probably Jesus is more prophesied in the Bible then Muhammad in the Bible. Yes I also do believe that Jesus is the messiah but that's why I don't believe he is the prophet like Moses or he fulfils Isaiah 42.
