Muhammad's Prophethood, from the Gospel

There are a number of passages in the New Testament which clearly refer to the coming of Muhammad (pbuh) by implication through the nature of his actions or functions.

John, the Baptist:
"The Jews sent priests to him to find out who he was. ‘He confessed, I am not the Christ.‛ And they asked him, ’What then? Are you Elijah?‛ And He said: `I am not.‛ `Are you that Prophet?’ And he answered, `No‛…And they said to him: `Why do you baptize then, if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor that Prophet?’." (John 1:20-25)
That Prophet is not Jesus, but Muhammad, because John the Baptist continued preaching and baptizing and foretelling the coming of that Prophet during the lifetime of Jesus.

"The Prophet Jesus foretold the coming of another Prophet, whose name would be ‘Periqlytos’ or ‘Paraclete’ or ‘Paracalon’ and who (that is, whose teaching) would last forever, ‘I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter (Periqlytos), that he may abide with you forever.’ "
(John XIV, 16)
The word periqlytos means ‘illustrious, ‘renowned’ and ‘praiseworthy’ and this is exactly what the name ‘Ahmed’ means. It is confirmed in the Qur’an that the Prophet Jesus did prophesize that a Prophet named ‘Ahmed’ would come after him.

God, the Exalted, says:
"And remember when Jesus the son of Mary, said: `O Children of Israel! I am the Messenger of Allah unto you, confirming the Torah which came before me, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed.’ " (61:6)
