An Islamic claim that was made popular by Muslim apologist Ahmed Deedat is that Muhammad is the prophet like Moses that was predicted in Deuteronomy. The verse that Deedat references is, “I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him.” (Deut. 18:18). Deedat begins with the assumption that the only two criteria that Christians use to determine that Jesus is like Moses is that they are both Jews and prophets.i He then attempts to show that Jesus is not like Moses, while Muhammad is like Moses. Deedat then argues that Muhammad should be counted among the brothers of the Hebrews and that Allah put the words of the Qur’an in the mouth of Muhammad.
Ratio Christi (Latin for ‘The Reason of Christ’) is a global movement that equips university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ. Bringing together faith and reason to establish the intellectual voice of Christ in the University, Ratio Christi is planting student led apologetics clubs at universities around the world. Students, engaged in the battle for the mind, learn to defend God's existence, the reliability of the Bible, and the fact of Christ’s resurrection. We seek a Renaissance of Christian Thinking in the University.
