"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Does Muhammad's Name Appear in Song of Solomon 5:16?

    Are you aware that the Qur'an claims (in Surah 61:6 and Surah 7:157) that the Bible refers to Muhammad? In fact, this idea was a central feature of Muhammad's understanding of his own identity as a prophet.

    At his blog at, Dr. James White writes, "Does Muhammad's Name Appear in Song of Solomon 5:16? The answer, of course, is "no." But how would you respond to the bright-eyed, confident, convinced Islamic college student who told you that surely Muhammad's name does appear in the Bible, and the renowned Bible scholar Ahmed Deedat had proven it to be so? Dr. Bassim Gorial gave me permission to post material from my last appearance in the Jesus or Muhammad Marathon on ABN (, for which I am very grateful. Included in this video is a Muslim caller who, well, changed her mind halfway through the call."

    There is also a Hyde Park debate on youtube between Jay Smith and Adnan(?) where the muslim says Isaiah 29:12 is speaking of Muhammed. Something about an illiterate prophet.
