Deuteronomy 18:15 I would think refers to Mohammed{pbuh}. Jesus was a Jew, so he would not be "brethren" in this sense. "Brethren" here, I am led to understand, would be the relationship between the Jewish and Arabic peoples going back to Ismael and Issaec. If it was Isa, " of thy brethren" would be left off. This is a key phrase.

Besides, Jesus had no father, so no genealogy.

Mary was also decendent of King David...therefore Abraham.  They are dicussing the Levites in that chapter.  The levites are one of the tribes of Israel.

brethren means brothers in this case.as in  all the followers of god are brothers.as you Muslims have pointed out.the original script was in Hebrew and the interpretations you make is off the translation.i was taught this passage is gods promise of the Messiah.Jesus Christ

Yes, Deut 18 is referring to the Messiah, eventually.  A Jew would tell you that Deut. 18 speaks of all prophets who came after Moses, and that these prophets were Jewish and they would tell you that it couldn't possibly be Muhammad who was not a Jew.

Brethern could refer to any tribe of Israel.  Ishmael's group were really step-brethern.

"The Levitical priests, that is, all the tribe of Levi, shall have no portion or inheritance with Israel ... they shall have no inheritance among their brethren".  Deuteronomy 18.1-2.

Therefore the only logical interpretation of Deuteronomy 18.18 can be: "I will raise up for them (that is, the tribe of Levi) a prophet like you from among their brethren (that is, one of the other tribes of Israel)". Indeed throughout the Old Testament we often find the expression "their brethren" meaning the remaining tribes of Israel as distinct from the tribe specifically referred to. Look at this verse as an example:

But the children of Benjamin would not listen to the voice of their brethren, the children of Israel.  Judges 20.13

Here "their brethren" is specifically stated to be the other tribes of Israel as distinct from the tribe of Benjamin. In Deuteronomy 18.18, therefore, "their brethren" clearly means the brethren in Israel of the tribe of Levi.  Again in Numbers 8.26 the tribe of Levi is commanded to minister to "their brethren", that is, the remaining tribes of Israel.  In 2 Kings 24.12 the tribe of Judah is distinguished from "their brethren", once again the remaining tribes of Israel. (Further scriptures proving the point are Judges 21.22, 2 Samuel 2.26, 2 Kings 23.9, 1 Chronicles 12.32, 2 Chronicles 28.15, Nehemiah 5.1 and others).

In Deuteronomy 17.15 we read that Moses on one occasion said to the Israelites "One from among your brethren you shall set as king over you; you may not put a foreigner over you, who is not your brother". Only an Israelite could be appointed king of Israel - "one from among your brethren" - no foreigner, be he Ishmaelite, Edomite or whoever he may be, could be made King of Israel because he was not one of "their brethren", that is, a member of one of the tribes of Israel.

Since all of the tribes of Israel are called "brethern" a Muslim would have to come up with a reason why they were excluded, based on facts.

Further than this, the promise came through Isaac and not Ishmael.

In addition the New Testament identifies the prophet like Moses as Jesus Christ.

Katherine is quite right here.  The Messiah was to come from the brethren of Moses, who were the Jews - not Muslims, of course.  This is a reference to the One Who came from the Jews, the Seed of Abraham, the seed mentioned in Genesis 3:15 who tampled on Satan's head: Jesus Christ
