According to the Torah (Deuteronomy 13:1-5 and 18:18-22), the criteria for a person to be considered a prophet or speak for God are that they must follow the God of Israel (and no other god), they must not describe God differently than He is known to be from Scripture, they must not advocate change to God's word or state that God has changed His mind and wishes things that contradict His already-stated eternal word, and the things they do speak of must come to pass.
Thus, any divergence from the tenets of Biblical Judaism espoused by Jesus/Muhammad/Joseph Smith/etc. would disqualify him from being considered a prophet.
Agree or not?
