What every Christian needs to know about the Hadith and the Sunnah by Rudolph P. Boshoff.

Traditionally, the word Hadīth’ (Arabic: حديث‎ ʾhādīṯ or plural ahādīth أحاديث) [1] means ‘communication’ or ‘narrative’ and in an Islamic setting, it would pertain to the stories about the life of Prophet Muhammad and his companions. Shaik Kadir in his helpful book, ‘Islam Explained’, writes; “Apart from the Qur’an, there is another book that Muslims rely on for guidance — the Hadith, which contains the words and deeds of the Prophet. The Islamic law and [...]

The Qur’an before the Qur’an by Rudolph Boshoff

(15-Minute read). Keith Small wrote that any religion professing to be the sole foundation of truth should never shy away from any form of scrutiny. He wrote; “Many people of all faiths and no faith have come to realize that religious tradition cannot be followed blindly. If a religion is to commend itself in this age, it must be open to the hardest and best questions put to it. We no longer live in a [...]

The “Prophet Like Moses” By Bobby Freddy.

Most frequently quoted Biblical passage that Muslim  Polemicists like Ahmed Deedat (South Africa), Dr. Jamal Badawi (Canada) and their disciple, Apologist Dr. Shabir Ally (Canada) use to show the prophecy of Muhammad from the Torah of Moses, is found in Deut 18. This is based on two verses from the Quran, viz; Surahs 7:157 & 61:6 respectively that alleges Muhammad is foretold in the Torah of Moses and the Injeel (Gospel of Jesus) In this [...]

A discussion about the version of the Bible available to Muhammad by Prof. Henk G. Stoker & Paul Derengowski

ABSTRACT It is a mandate that all Muslims believe in all previous revelations given by God along with the Qur'an (Surah 2:4). Relative to discussions with Christians, Muslims are required to believe the Bible. Some Muslim apologists today contend that the Bible has been 'corrupted' or tainted through the infusion of faulty doctrines and the exclusion of valuable texts that support Islamic ideas by dubious scribes and malicious copyists. According to them there is no [...]

Is Muhammad Foretold in the Bible? by John Gilchrist

MUHAMMAD IN THE BIBLE? During 1975 Ahmed Deedat held a series of lectures at the Durban City Hall, two of which set out to prove that Muhammad is foretold in the Bible. The first lecture, entitled What the Bible Says About Muhammad, dealt with the prophecy in Deuteronomy 18.18 in the Old Testament, and in it Mr. Deedat sought to show that Moses was predicting the coming of Muhammad when speaking of a prophet to follow [...]

A Critique of “Jesus & the Injeel” by John Fontain by Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

John Fontain has written a little booklet scrutinizing various themes making large claims concerning the Bible, Jesus and the Christian understanding of the Gospel. I do not endeavor in this evaluation to look at everything Mr. Fontain mentioned and as far possible tried to keep it short and precise, assessing his claims from a Biblical Christian and Scholarly understanding. About the cover: Just an interesting observation about the cover of this little booklet. The quality [...]

Was Mohammad a true prophet of God? Does the Bible Predict Mohammad? by Vladimir Susic

Part 1: Is Mohammad a true prophet of God? While our Muslim friends would certainly answer "Yes",we as Christians, are to "test the spirits" (1 John 4:1) and not to take any theological claim,or any claim in general without evidence. Even tho we know historically that much of what we know about Mohammad's life are latter opinions from eight and ninth century,contained in the "Hadith",transmited by "Isnad",or,chains of narration,non written chains of narration that is,one [...]

Siege of the Prophets: Muhammad Jesus and Moses? Pastor Rudolph Boshoff.

This is a follow on from an earlier article I published that asked the question: "Is Muhammad the Prophet mentioned in Deuteronomy 18?" This article will give only 10 reasons why it couldn't have been Muhammad! I would like to keep it short and direct so that you the reader can peruse it for yourself! Muhammad Jesus and Moses?  Can we deem these three figures on the same level? I honestly do not think so, [...]

Jesus, Zoroaster, Buddha, Socrates & Muhammad The Life, Death and Teaching of Jesus Compared with Other Great Religious Figures By: Edwin M. Yamauchi, Ph.D.

 One hears conflicting estimates of Jesus. Christians believe he is incomparable, without a peer, but they are often quite ignorant of the lives of other great spiritual leaders. On the other hand, some people speak of Jesus, Buddha, Socrates and others without acknowledging any differences. Walter Lippmann, for example, remarks, "There is no doubt that in one form or another, Socrates and Buddha, Jesus and St. Paul, Plotinus and Spinoza, taught that the good life [...]
