I've given the talk on Prophet Muhammad, peace

00:00:06 --> 00:00:08

be upon him, in the major world religious

00:00:08 --> 00:00:09

scriptures.

00:00:09 --> 00:00:12

But today, my topic specifically is

00:00:13 --> 00:00:15

Muhammad, peace be upon him, in the Bible.

00:00:18 --> 00:00:19

Today,

00:00:19 --> 00:00:22

my main purpose is to prove to the

00:00:22 --> 00:00:25

Christian that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him,

00:00:25 --> 00:00:27

has been prophesied in the Bible.

00:00:30 --> 00:00:32

If the Christian do not believe

00:00:33 --> 00:00:35

that Quran is the word of Almighty God,

00:00:36 --> 00:00:38

I will prove from their scriptures, the Bible,

00:00:38 --> 00:00:41

which the Christians believe is the word of

00:00:41 --> 00:00:44

God that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him,

00:00:44 --> 00:00:46

is also mentioned in your Bible.

00:00:51 --> 00:00:52

1st, we'll discuss

00:00:53 --> 00:00:54

about the prophecies

00:00:54 --> 00:00:57

in the Old Testament. The Bible, if we

00:00:57 --> 00:00:57

analyze,

00:00:58 --> 00:00:59

is divided into 2 parts.

00:01:00 --> 00:01:01

The Old Testament,

00:01:01 --> 00:01:02

and the New Testament.

00:01:03 --> 00:01:05

The Old Testament deals with the stories of

00:01:05 --> 00:01:08

all the prophets, from the first prophet, that

00:01:08 --> 00:01:10

is Adam, peace be upon him, up to

00:01:10 --> 00:01:13

the prophets before Jesus, peace be upon him.

00:01:13 --> 00:01:16

And the New Testament deals with the stories

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17

and the life of Prophet Jesus, peace be

00:01:17 --> 00:01:18

upon him.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:21

According to the Catholic version of the Bible,

00:01:21 --> 00:01:23

the Douay version, there are 73 books in

00:01:23 --> 00:01:24

the Bible.

00:01:24 --> 00:01:26

If you read the Protestant

00:01:26 --> 00:01:27

version of the Bible,

00:01:28 --> 00:01:28

they

00:01:29 --> 00:01:31

have thrown out 7 books from the Old

00:01:31 --> 00:01:32

Testament,

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

which they call apocryphy.

00:01:35 --> 00:01:35

Apocryphy

00:01:35 --> 00:01:36

means doubtful.

00:01:37 --> 00:01:39

So the Bible of the protestants

00:01:39 --> 00:01:40

contains

00:01:40 --> 00:01:41

66 books.

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

The Old Testament

00:01:45 --> 00:01:46

of the protestants

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47

contains

00:01:47 --> 00:01:48

39 books,

00:01:49 --> 00:01:50

and the Old Testament

00:01:51 --> 00:01:51

of the Catholics

00:01:52 --> 00:01:53

contains

00:01:53 --> 00:01:53

46

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

books. The new testament of both,

00:01:56 --> 00:01:58

Catholics and Protestants,

00:01:58 --> 00:02:00

contain 27 books.

00:02:00 --> 00:02:01

First we'll discuss

00:02:02 --> 00:02:05

the prophecy of prophet Muhammad, peace be upon

00:02:05 --> 00:02:06

him, in the old testament.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

Allah says in the Quran in chapter

00:02:09 --> 00:02:11

number 7, verse number 157.

00:02:13 --> 00:02:13

They follow

00:02:14 --> 00:02:15

the messenger,

00:02:15 --> 00:02:18

the unleaded prophet who is mentioned in the

00:02:18 --> 00:02:19

scriptures,

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

the law and the gospel.

00:02:22 --> 00:02:23

If you read the Old Testament,

00:02:24 --> 00:02:27

there is a very explicit

00:02:27 --> 00:02:28

prophecy

00:02:29 --> 00:02:31

in the Old Testament, in the book of

00:02:31 --> 00:02:31

Deuteronomy,

00:02:32 --> 00:02:35

chapter number 18, verse number 18, where almighty

00:02:35 --> 00:02:36

God says,

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

I shall raise them up a prophet

00:02:39 --> 00:02:41

from among thy brethren,

00:02:42 --> 00:02:44

like unto thee, and I shall put my

00:02:44 --> 00:02:47

words into his mouth, and he shall speak

00:02:47 --> 00:02:49

all that I command him.

00:02:49 --> 00:02:50

When we ask the Christians

00:02:51 --> 00:02:54

that who does this prophecy refer to?

00:02:54 --> 00:02:57

And most of the Christians say this prophecy

00:02:57 --> 00:03:00

refers to no one but Jesus Christ, peace

00:03:00 --> 00:03:01

be upon him.

00:03:01 --> 00:03:03

And when we ask them that how does

00:03:03 --> 00:03:06

this prophecy refer to Jesus Christ, peace be

00:03:06 --> 00:03:09

upon him, they tell us, this prophecy says,

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

I shall raise them up a Prophet from

00:03:11 --> 00:03:14

among thy brethren, like unto thee, like unto

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

Moses, peace be upon him. So this prophecy

00:03:16 --> 00:03:18

says, the Prophet to come

00:03:19 --> 00:03:21

would be like Moses, peace be upon him.

00:03:21 --> 00:03:24

And the only Prophet who is like Moses,

00:03:24 --> 00:03:26

peace be upon him, is Jesus Christ, peace

00:03:26 --> 00:03:27

be upon him.

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

And then we ask them how is Jesus,

00:03:29 --> 00:03:31

peace be upon him, like Moses, peace be

00:03:31 --> 00:03:34

upon him. So they give us two reasons.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:35

Number 1,

00:03:36 --> 00:03:38

Moses, peace be upon him, was a Jew.

00:03:38 --> 00:03:40

Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, was a

00:03:40 --> 00:03:40

Jew.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

Moses, peace be upon him, was a prophet

00:03:43 --> 00:03:46

of God, was a spiritual leader. Jesus Christ,

00:03:46 --> 00:03:47

peace be upon him, was a prophet of

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

God, was a spiritual leader.

00:03:50 --> 00:03:51

These two similarities

00:03:51 --> 00:03:54

are sufficient to prove that Jesus, peace be

00:03:54 --> 00:03:55

upon him,

00:03:55 --> 00:03:58

has been prophesied in Deuteronomy chapter number 18

00:03:58 --> 00:03:59

verse 17.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:00

I tell these Christians

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

that if these two similarities

00:04:03 --> 00:04:05

are the only two points

00:04:06 --> 00:04:08

for fulfillment of the prophecy

00:04:09 --> 00:04:11

that the person should be a Jew

00:04:11 --> 00:04:14

and he should be a prophet, then all

00:04:14 --> 00:04:16

the prophets mentioned in the Old Testament,

00:04:17 --> 00:04:19

after Moses, peace be upon him, all the

00:04:19 --> 00:04:22

prophets mentioned in the Bible, after Moses, peace

00:04:22 --> 00:04:23

be upon

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

him. Like

00:04:24 --> 00:04:25

Solomon,

00:04:25 --> 00:04:26

Ezekiel,

00:04:26 --> 00:04:27

Isaiah,

00:04:27 --> 00:04:28

Daniel,

00:04:28 --> 00:04:31

Joel, Hosea, John the Baptist, all of them

00:04:31 --> 00:04:32

were Jew

00:04:32 --> 00:04:35

and all of them were prophets of God.

00:04:35 --> 00:04:38

So all these prophets mentioned in the Bible,

00:04:38 --> 00:04:40

after Moses, peace be upon him, they fulfill

00:04:40 --> 00:04:41

the prophecy.

00:04:42 --> 00:04:44

What is so unique about Jesus Christ, peace

00:04:44 --> 00:04:45

be upon him?

00:04:45 --> 00:04:48

So I am here to help the Christians.

00:04:52 --> 00:04:53

I'm here

00:04:53 --> 00:04:57

to make the Christians understand the Bible better.

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

And if I'm wrong,

00:05:00 --> 00:05:03

the Christians are welcome during question answer time

00:05:03 --> 00:05:04

to correct me.
