In John -27, we read more about this coming Helper: But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me. Moreover, the disciples bearing witness is directly linked to the coming of the promised Helper, and thus the fulfillment of this promise must be found in the disciples to whom the promise was made.
And you also will bear witness, because you have been with me from the beginning. John 16:7-14 provides yet further difficulties: Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
Premise 1 need not be defended, since it is self-evident that the two alternatives are mutually exclusive and exhaustive possibilities.
Thus, everything said by Jesus to the disciples would not be relevant to them.
As I have shown, Premises 1 and 2 cannot be reasonably denied. The Qur’an, over and over again, affirms the Christian Scriptures, claiming consistency with them, and asserting that the Torah and the Gospel (the “Injil”), and also the Psalms, are previous revelations from Allah. One will search in vain, however, to find any mention of Muhammad in any Biblical text.
This has left Muslim apologists doing hermeneutic gymnastics to inject Muhammad somewhere into the Bible. One such attempt is the claim that the coming prophet like Moses, spoken of in Deuteronomy -19, is, in fact, Muhammad.
The Islamic religion claims that the Qur’an, revealed allegedly by the angel Gabriel to the prophet Muhammad beginning in 610 A. Such an assertion, however, is highly problematic, and many, many arguments could be given to convincingly refute it.
In this article, I am going to offer one of those reasons, which I perceive to be the most damning.
