Muslims claim there are prophecies about Muhammad in the Jewish and Christian scriptures, purely because the Quran says there are prophecies about Muhammad in these books.
“Those who follow the apostle, the unlettered prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own scriptures, in the Torah and the Gospel… Quran 7:157 Yusuf Ali
But the problem is, some of these verses quoted by Muslim are not prophecies at all! Some are prophecies but are obviously not referring to Muhammad. Oh how willing people are to twist scripture to prove their religion!
A common passage used by Muslims to refer to Muhammad is Deuteronomy 18:18-19, Yah is talking to Moses in this passage “I will raise up a prophet for them from among their own people, like yourself I will put my words in his mouth and he will speak to them all that I command him; and if anyone fails to HEED the words he speaks in my name, I myself will call him to account”
“From among their own people” Muhammad was an Arab, not an Israelite. Although they are both from Abraham, they are different peoples. There is biblical proof that this verse refers to Joshua son of Nun.
Deuteronomy 34:9 Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had layed his hands upon him and the Israelites HEEDED him, as Yah had commanded Moses”
Muslims quote Deuteronomy 33 as proving that a prophet was prophecied to be born in Arabia.
“The Lord came from Sinai
and dawned over them from Seir;
he shone forth from Mount Paran.
He came with[a] myriads of holy ones
from the south, from his mountain slopes.[b]
3 Surely it is you who love the people;
all the holy ones are in your hand.
At your feet they all bow down,
and from you receive instruction,
4 the law that Moses gave us,
the possession of the assembly of Jacob.
5 He was king over Jeshurun[c]
when the leaders of the people assembled,
along with the tribes of Israel”
Purely because this verse is in past tense, this proves this is not a prophecy. Also, it is referring to Yah shining on the Israelites when the Torah was given to Moses.
