Muslims sincerely believe Jesus made a prophecy of the coming of Muhammad, Islam's prophet. They get this notion from a verse in the Qur'an which has Jesus saying exactly this. Sura 61:6 of the Qur'an says, "And remember, Jesus, son of Mary, said, 'O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah sent to you, confirming the law which came before me, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be called Ahmed.'" And since Muslims believe the Qur'an to be the literal words of God, and since God in the Qur'an says Jesus predicted Muhammad, they go to great lengths to find a reference in the Bible where Jesus made such a prediction. They believe this prediction is found in John 14:26. How do we respond to such a challenge?
