Muhammad in the Bible

2. Criterion of the Prophet by Jeremiah

     (Jeremiah 28:9): "The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the Lord hath truly sent him."

     The word Islam also signifies Tranquillity, and Peace. Peace between the Creator and his creatures. This prophecy of Jeremiah cannot be applied to Jesus, as he himself stated that he didn't come for peace (Luke 12:51-53): "Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there will be five in one house divided, three against two and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law." See also (Matthew 10:34-36).

 

3. Until Shiloh Comes

     This was a message of Jacob to his children before he died (Genesis 49:1): "And Jacob called unto his sons, and said: 'Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days. "

     (Genesis 49:10): "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a law giver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be."

     Shiloh is also the name of a town, but its real meaning is peace, tranquillity, rest, i.e. Islam. It could never refer to a town here. If it referred to a person, it could be a corruption of Shaluah (Elohim), i.e. Messenger (of Allah) .

     So the Israelite prophethood in the lineage of Isaac would stop as soon as Shiloh comes. This corresponds with Surah 2:133 (English meaning): "Were you witnesses when death came to Jacob? When he said to his sons: 'What will you worship after me?' They said: 'We shall worship your God [Allah], the God of your fathers Abraham, Ishmael, and Isaac, One God and to Him we surrender [in Islam]’.”

     The shift of prophethood to another nation was threatened in (Jeremiah 31:36): "'If those ordinances depart from before me,' saith the Lord, 'then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever’.” Also hinted at by Jesus in (Matthew 21:43): "Therefore say I unto you: 'The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof”.
