A prophet like Moses: Jesus or Muhammad – Part 1

Muslims always insist that Muhammad is mentioned in the bible, and they quote Deuteronomy 18:18 to suggest that Moses referred to Muhammad. Deuteronomy 18:18 says “I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him.” So is it possible that Moses referred to Muhammad? No, because the requirement was that this prophet would be like Moses: “a prophet like you”. So for Muhammad to be this prophet he would have to be like Moses, but we know that Muhammad was nothing like Moses, and they have no unambigious similarities whatsoever.   

Christians also insist that Moses referred to Jesus, but is there truth in this? As we have showed, for Jesus to qualify as this prophet He would have to have similarities with Moses that are not unambigious. You’ll be surprised to know that unlike with Muhammad, Jesus and Moses have more than 50 similarities that prove beyond doubt that Jesus was the prophet that Moses referred to:

  • During Moses’ birth, Pharaoh commanded all Hebrew male infants to be killed (see Exodus 1:23). During Jesus’ birth, Herod commanded all Hebrew male infants to be killed (Matthew 2:16)
  • Moses fasted for 40 days and 40 nights when he received the Torah (Exodus 34:28). Jesus fasted for 40 days and 40 nights when He was tempted in the wilderness (Matthew 4:1-2)
  • Moses’ face shone with the glory of God (Exodus 34:29). Jesus’ face shone with the glory of God (Matthew 17:1-12)
  • Moses fed children of Israel with a supernatural manna (Exodus 16:15). Jesus fed multitudes of more than 5000 people with five loaves and two fishes (Matthew 14:19-21)
  • Moses pleaded with God to forgive the sins of his people (Numbers 14:19). Jesus pleaded with God to forgive the sins of those who crucified Him (Luke 23:34)
  • God revealed his healing power through Moses (Exodus 15:26). God healed his healing power through Jesus (Matthew 4:23).
  • Moses received the law in Mount Sinai (Exodus 19:3). Jesus fulfilled the law in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5).
  • God came to Moses in a thick cloud (Exodus 19:9, 24:16). God came to Jesus in a thick cloud on the Mount of Transfiguration (Mark 9:7)
  • God gave Moses new Commandments to teach his people (Exodus 24:12). God gave Jesus new Commandments to teach His people (John 13:34)
  • Moses chose 12 men, 1 of each tribe of Israel and sent them out to scout an area (Deuteronomy 1:23). Jesus sent out 12 men and sent them out to an evangelistic mission (Matthew 10:1)
