m13 * Moses and the Injil? Jesus is born more than 1,000 years after Moses, but in 7:157 Allah speaks to Moses about what is written in the Injil [the book given to Jesus].
In 7:156 one topic has been concluded, and in 7:157 a new one has begun. They are speaking about two different time periods. The new topic has moved from the time of prophet Moses (pbuh) to the time of prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and is describing those who "follow the unlettered prophet (Muhammad, pbuh) whom they find written in the Torah and the injeel that is with them." Many stories related to this verse and the Jews of the time of Muhammad (pbuh) could be narrated here confirming how they did indeed recognize him, however, due to a lack of time and space the interested reader is encouraged to read the chapter on the life of Muhammad (pbuh) in "What Did Jesus Really Say?" Neither is God speaking to Moses in this verse nor is it even addressed to those who lived in that age. If so, then how can they be expected to "follow" prophet Muhammad (pbuh) if he has not even been born yet? In order to generate a contradiction, this address is redirected by the author of this list from the Jews and Christians of the time of Muhammad (pbuh) and directed towards Moses (pbuh) and then forced to be a continuation of a previous topic. The verses narrate the story of the Jews in the time of Moses (pbuh) and then move a few centuries into the future in order to display their situation at and after the time of prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
I suppose that according to this logic that it shall be acceptable to
claim that Deut. 18:18-19 is commanding prophet Moses (pbuh) and the Jews that are with
him to follow a new prophet who is present in their time? Similarly, according to such
logic, should we insist that Acts 3:24-26 is a continuation of the words of Moses (pbuh)
in Acts 3:22-23? Should we then insist that Acts 2:24-26 claims that prophet Moses (pbuh)
spoke of Samuel's future confirmation of his prophesy? Are the verses of Acts 2:24-26 the
words of Moses? Should we force them into his mouth just because the previous two verses
of Acts 2:22-23 were his words?
