Comparative religion has always been an interest area of mine. This discussion is quite an interesting one, and if you don’t have enough time to watch the video, here’s a link to the dialogue referred to in the video. Such dialogues are not uncommon between leaders of various faith groups in South Africa. Although it is a lot less prevalent since the passing on of Ahmed Deedat.
Here’s the introduction to the video from the Youtube posting:
According to the Bible, God said to Moses, on whom be peace: I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. (Deuteronomy chapter 18, verse 18 – King James Version).
The prophet described in the above verse must have the following three characteristics: 1. He will be like Moses. 2. He will come from the brothers of the Israelites, i.e. the Ishmaelites. 3. God will put His words in the mouth of the prophet and he will declare what God commanded him.
The question is; who is this prophet? Let us find out…
The Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) in the Bible
