The Messiah and the Prophet
« on: December 16, 2015, 06:55:11 AM »
You say that, "the awaited Messiah and the awaited "the Prophet" were clearly TWO DIFFERENT PERSONS, who are strangers to each others, and are not from the same bloodline."

I find this interesting because in the scripture you quoted, something doesn't make sense (John 1:19-21).

If the Prophet was to be an Ishmaelite, or a non-Israelite, then why in the world did these Jews ask a fellow Israelite, John, if he were that Prophet to come? Why did they ask John, an Israelite, if he were that Prophet if the Prophet was to be a non-Israelite, a Gentile?

For upon the birth of an Ishmaelite prophet in East. Many of israelites were dissapointed and could not accept the prophecy given by Yhwh.

There are also few Israelites who posses knowledge of the scripture and anticipated the coming of the prophet like Moses being an Ishmaelite. And they accepted the prophecy given by Yhwh with joy.

This doesn't really answer my question, but thank you for taking the time to respond.
