Does the Bible mention Muhammad?

If so, where?

Really curious, I have never read the Bible all the way through and I remember seeing an answer once saying something about the Bible mentioning a perfect prophet or something like that who was not Jesus.

  • Now the Gospel of Barnabas is promoted by some Muslims as an original Gospel supposedly written by a Jewish man (Barnabas) in the 1st century A.D. This work clearly contradicts the New Testament bibilical accounts of Jesus and his ministry but has strong parallels with the Islamic faith and mentions Muhammad by name. (however parts of it contradict the Quran).

    However, all we have two manuscripts, both dated to the late sixteenth century and written respectively in Italian and Spanish and it contains several historical inaccuracies. Most scholars say it dates back no earlier than the 14th–16th centuries. So basically it's not a "real" gospel.

  • Muhammad live around 600 years after Jesus with no ties to the Jews or the early Christians, so no he is not mentioned in the Bible.

  • So how is the connection made in Islam from the Bible to Muhhamad and/or the Quran?

  • No, the prophet Elijah is mentioned in the Bible though.
    Moses is also considered a great prophet from many perspectives.
    Niether of them however are considered perfect or as great as Jesus.

  • No Mohammad is not mentioned in the bible.

    The connection is back to Abraham... God promised Abraham a son from Sarah... however instead of waiting on Sarah to get pregnant Sarah gave him Hagar and Ishmael was born. Later Sarah became pregnant herself and Isaac was born.

    The descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the nation of Isarael (the Jews) .
    The descendants of Ishamel are the arab /muslim nations.

  • As muslims we do believe he was mentioned in the torah and injeel (gospel of jesus) , but as you probaly already know we believe they are corrupted.

    Surah & Al-araf
    157. "Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (Scriptures);― in the Law and the Gospel;― for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil: he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him honour, him, help him, and follow the Light which is sent down with him― it is they who will prosper."

  • I don't know if he was mentioned in the Bible but I do know that the Torah, Bible, and Quran are from God and are clearly related.
