A Former Muslim Refutes the Claim That Muhammad Is Mentioned in John 15:26

The Qur'an claims that Christians find Muhammad mentioned in our scriptures (Qur'an 7:157). Hence, if we don't find Muhammad mentioned in our scriptures, the Qur'an is wrong.

Not surprisingly, Muslims have spent nearly fourteen centuries trying to find Muhammad in the Bible. One of the most common claims is that Muhammad is the "Comforter" or "Advocate" of John 14, 15, and 16. In John 15:26, for instance, Jesus says, "When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me."

In the following video, a former Muslim discusses John 15:26.

I never understood how Muslims can read that passage and come to the conclusion that it's speak about Muhammad...Especially when that passage speaks in a way that says the comforter is devine;which the Quran and Muhammad, claim he (Muhammad) is just a man.

What I like best about that verse is that

1. Muslims believe Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. If he is the "messenger" then it means Allah sent him to mankind to proclaim the truth. But here, Jesus said, "..the Comforter, whom I (Jesus) will send to you..". So, if Muhammad is indeed the Comforter, then who does that make Jesus?

2. Continuing from that verse, it reads, "...whom I will send to you from the FATHER." Did Jesus just called God Father again?? But I thought Muslims don't subscribe to that.

Islam... Stupid.

Because Muhammad denied Jesus' Divinity, he, at the most basic level, cannot possibly be the 'Advocate' that Jesus was speaking about.

If, as Muslims claim, Jesus sent the Comforter and the Comforter was "Muhammad," are Muslims then saying Muhammad had a pre-incarnate existence, one where he could have meaningful dialog before birth!?

In what way did/does Muhammad (and his followers), comfort Jesus' disciples?

I nick myself when shaving occasionally; I've yet to find it a comforting experience. How much more uncomfortable a sword being thrust into you or having your head chopped off.
