It is interesting to note that:


"19 Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”
20 He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.”
21 And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?”
He said, “I am not.”
“Are you the Prophet?”
And he answered, “No.”
22 Then they said to him, “Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?” "

This shows that the Jews were looking for THREE different prophecies to come true not just two. The Christ, Jesus, Elijah, and the Prophet. My Christian brothers only see two questions posed here, not three. Now we ask, who is "the Prophet"? Who else claimed prophecy and had to do with Jesus and John other than Mohammed?

 

However, I figured they were just asking him the same question in three different ways.

That's what I see, asking the same question 3 different ways.

 yes we should. Jesus said that Elias was John.

".......ELIAS TRULY SHALL FIRST COME, AND RESTORE ALL THINGS. BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT ELIAS IS COME ALREADY, AND THEY KNEW HIM NOT,...THEN THE DISCIPLES UNDERSTOOD THAT HE SPAKE UNTO THEM OF JOHN THE BAPTIST."(Matthew 17:11-13).

"AND THEY ASKED HIM, AND SAID UNTO HIM, WHEY BAPTIZEST THOU THEN, IF THOU BE
a) NOT THAT CHRIST,
b) NOR ELIAS,
c) NEITHER THAT PROPHET?"

(John 1:25)

 

Elias?

what happened to Elijah

Are they not two different names? although most likely come from the same name base.

Btw most prophets names in true didnt have a "J". It was translated that way. For example:

Jesus's true name was Eesa. The E is made into a J.

Josephs real names was Yoosif. The Y is made into a J.

John the Baptists real name was: Yahya.

Moses: Moosa

Aron: Haroon

Jona: Yoonis

just thought it was interesting.
