Saint John is another untrustworthy Roman like Paul

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Test for prophecy

Dear Richard,

John 6:27 doesn't say that Jesus was last prophet. It proves his prophecy.
Gospel of John quite interesting. Read the expressions about eating and drinking flesh and blood seem belongs to pagan Romans not Jesus himself.

53Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. 56Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.

John never saw Jesus but he tells what he said. It doesn't make sense for me. Do you have an eternal life? Did you drink blood of your messenger of God whatever you call him?

The others "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End " Revelation 22:12-13, 16, 20
"I am the first and I am the last" Isaiah 44:6

It doesn't make sense because Jesus was Jewish. How can he be the First? How about Abraham, Moses? It is obvious that those are fabricated things to praise Jesus.

"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. ....." (Matt. 7:15-20)

This is very general comment. I am sure there was many false prophets who were cheating Jewish Christian community at the times of the gospel written.

2 Peter 3:15-17, ".. the error of lawless men .." could be anyone a priest or a governor or a king? None of the verses refers to another messenger of God of Abraham.

Muhammed, peace upon him, is true prophet of God of Abraham Allah.
