The messenger of God shall answer: “They are Adam, Abraham, Ishmael, Moses, David, and Jesus son of Mary.”
“…And when they are present God shall say unto them: “Remember ye that which My messenger affirmeth?” They shall reply: “What thing, O Lord?” God shall say: “That I have made all things for love of him, so that all things might praise Me by him.” Then every one of them shall answer: “There are with us three witnesses better than we are, O Lord.” And God shall reply: “Who are these three witnesses?” Then Moses shall say: “The Book (Torah) that Thou gavest to me is the first”. And David shall say: “The Book (Psalms) that Thou gavest to Me is the second”. And he who speaketh to you shall say: “Lord, the whole world, deceived by Satan, said that I was Thy son and Thy fellow, but the Book (Gospel) that Thou gavest me said truly that I am Thy servant; and that Book (Gospel) confesseth that which Thy messenger affirmeth.” Then shall the messenger of God speak, and shall say: “Thus saith the Book (Quran) that Thou gavest Me, O Lord.”
“And when the messenger of God hath said this, God shall speak, saying: ‘All that I have now done, I have done in order that every one should know how much I Love Thee’” (The Gospel of Barnabas†, translated by Lonsdale and Laura [Oxford: Clarendon Press, London, 1907] Chapter: 55, pp. 72-73).
“The Talmud also teaches us that all the Prophets Prophesied only for the coming of the Messiah. Hence the One who was to be the Prophet, and the High Priest like unto Moses, was also the Messiah; from the lineage of Abraham (on whom be peace)” – (Rabbi Levi ben Gershon. Midrash Tanhuma, Israel: KTAV Publishing Company, 1989).
Eloquently, providing the evidence that “the sending of Muhammad (on whom be peace) was a sign of God’s mercy: ‘We sent you not, but as a Mercy for all creatures'” (Quran 21:107) – (Esposito, op. cit., 1998, p.24).
† “The Gospel of Barnabas” says Clarence G Wilson “was among the texts banned by the meeting of the Council of Nicea in 325 A.D. The pope secured the copy of the Gospel of Barnabas in 383 A.D. and kept it in his private library. In the fourth year of Emperor Zeno (478 A.D.), the remains Gospel of Barnabas were discovered and there was found on his breast a copy of Gospel of Barnabas written by his own hand. The early edition of famous Vulgate Bible appeared to be based on this Gospel. Although this Gospel had been forbidden, its contents have been preserved and have been translated into English where copies exist in the British Museum and in the Library of Congress, Washington. This Gospel is the most comprehensive documentation that I have seen, containing the words of Jesus; it also has more content than any other single testimony on the life of Jesus. We should be guided, by the words of John when he said: “And there are also many other things which Jesus did, those which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen,” – John 21:25. The point I am making is that although John did not write more about the life of Jesus and although only certain Gospels were chosen by the Authorized Church, there are also credible accounts of the life and words of Jesus along with those of the Bible” – (One God One Word: The Truth about the Knowledge and Worship of God, Trafford Publishing, Canada, 2004, p.42).
