I've already addressed part of that issue.

Reader comment on item: Rebuttal from The Moorish Science Temple of America-1928
in response to reader comment: Who is like Moses

Mohammed wasn't a Jew, and he lived at a time when prophecy didn't exist. It is impossible for him to have been a prophet, as I've previously explained.

Jesus abandoned Torah, and for that reason couldn't have been a prophet, even if he had lived at a time when prophecy was accessible, which he didn't. So, it was impossible for him to have been a prophet, as well.

Also, you quoted it yourself. "A prophet from among you, from your brothers, like me; the Lord, your God will set up for you; you shall hearken to him." (Deut 18:15) But only someone who remained true to Torah, which Jesus did not, made one fit for prophecy.

The first Torah quote you gave merely means that we aren't to make the mistake of thinking any prophet greater than Moses will come along. It doesn't imply anything at all, about non-Jewish prophets, which can't exist to begin with, let alone be greater than Moses. Saying otherwise is a willful misinterpretation of the verse, as is abundantly clear from your second quote, and much else we don't have room for here.

If you want to find out a lot more about what Christianity gets wrong, please listen to what Rabbi Tovia Singer has to say. He doesn't do it gratuitously, but in response to, and in an attempt to thwart, Christian missionaries trying to steal Jewish souls.
