    there is a 1500 year old bible that is in Turkey written in Aramaic that predicts Muhammad to come. I would have posted an link for information but I can't. Is it true though? does the bible really predict Muhammad?

    What do you think about this?

    The Bible does not predict Muhammad. There are Bibles that are older than that, none of which predict anything of the sort.

    The Bible does predict many anti-Christs. Muhammad is certainly an anti-Christ. But that is very broad and not a specific prediction of that specific man.

    The Old Testament "predicts" the coming of Jesus Christ. But not on His name, but only the nature, and the character of the Christ are mentioned.

    If the said bible explicitly predicted the name of Muhammad, that would be very funny. Otherwise, it must make some prediction on his character. I am sort of interested in knowing how was Muhammad described in that bible, no matter it is a fake or not.

    It tells me that to fake anything in the Bible is extremely difficult, in particular, the content of the Bible has endured thousands of years intense scrutiny by many many very smart people. To say the least, this single fact alone is amazing enough.

    hi all,

    Well, I'm confused. The headline says it's a 1500 year old bible, but the article states that it claims, of itself, to be written the 1500th year of our Lord. The claim within the book itself makes it only 500 years old, which would seem in agreement with all of the claims of the style of aramaic writing.

    I don't find it to be much of a trick for a book to 'prophesy' things that already happened 1500 years before they were written, in the case of all that may be in the book concerning Jesus, and 900 years before, as would be the case of Muhammad.

    This 'bible' seems to be the case of someone who was having difficulty teaching Muhammed to christians and so decided to write and 'find' this book that shows that, "Ah-hah, Jesus prophecied concerning Muhammad. See, it's written right here in this book I found."

    God bless you all,
    In Christ, Ted

    I had a feeling it was a fraud.

    The only thing that isn't a fraud is that a new manuscript was discovered like a month ago and approved by Daniel Wallace claiming it's the earliest manuscript we have.

    Anyone hear about this?

    That's not the only problem with it. Note that the article said Christ's body was covered with "100 pounds of stone." The term "pound" didn't come into use until the Ottoman Empire in about the late 18th century.

    I doubt it, nothing new in the Bible, don't add or subtract from it.

    Not much.

    Muslims have been taught to believe that the NT texts actually have predictions concerning the coming of the Prophet.

    It is like anything to do with texts - you cut and paste anything to come up with a new story. Like someone said, if you cut text out of context you end up with pretext.

    Muslims (arabs) are the prodigy of the slave woman, Isaac was the child of promise from the Jews.

    That totally explains the existence of Arab Christians. I had no idea everyone was locked into a religion based on some theologically-shaky ethnic theories.

    Ishmael, the son of Hagar, the Egyptian maid of Abrahams wife Sarah. Isaac the son of Sarah was the promised child. All Arabs, following Mohammed's example, claim descent from Ishmael.

    Muslims are not Arabs - Muslims subscribe to Islam.

    That's not what their prophet Muhammed said. Who himself made up the fake religion of Islam and they're god, allah (satan)

    What, pray tell, did the Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him, exactly say?

    The most populous Muslim country is Indonesia - not Saudi Arabia, or Iran - and Indonesians are not Arabs.

    No peace and blessings for pagans. Muhammad claimed his own supremacy as the apostle of Allah, and he consequently taught that all prophets, apostles, or messengers who came before him were simply forerunners who were now replaced. Since he was now the sole authority, all other systems politically were invalid, based on the divine doctrines as expressed in the Qur'an and the Sunnah. This religious-political doctrine is known as doctrine of Al Wallaa' wa al Baraa (allegiance and immunity), which is, in short: enmity.

    Then you need to read the Bible - again.

    If you cannot find it within yourself to pray for peace and blessing for those who might not like I wonder what that then makes you.

    You probably also need to study the Qur'an a little deeper rather than relying on Wikipedia.
