Prophet/Messiah, same people, different titles

Here are two more verses which show that messiah and prophet are different:

40On hearing his words, some of the people said, "Surely this man is the Prophet."

41Others said, "He is the Christ." John 7:40-41

Again who tell me another lie the Jews were sure that the messiah and the prophet were different but they didn't know who Jesus was.

What are you trying to say?? The Jews weren't completely united on their beliefs. That is why there were deutercanonical books and Pharisees and Saducees (who differed on their beliefs).

It shows nobody that the Prophet and Messiah are different. After all, Jesus called himself a prophet (Mt. 13:53). Peter and Luke even tells us that Jesus is the Prophet and in the same breath says that he's the Messiah (Acts 3:22).

The Qu'ran upholds that Jesus was a righteous (and sinless) man. So if Jesus was righteous and sinless, why did Jesus claim that he was God? See, either both Islam and Christianity are wrong or Islam is wrong and Christianity is right. There is no other possibility.

God is called Elohim and Adonai. Different titles, same deity. Prophet and Messiah, same people, different titles.

Jesus said that he was the Messiah and he also said that Moses wrote about him. Who'd Moses write about? The Prophet! Whatever the case, Muhammad is definately not the prophet because of his lack of unique experiences/characteristics similar to Moses and more importantly, he is not Jewish.

May God Bless You All
