I think your definition of Prophet is different from us. Prophet, Messengers of God, Nabi, Rasul, Spirit of Truth etc are synonymous. God sends them to guide mankind to His path. In that sense Nuh, Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus, Mohammad, all are Prophets. Now, the promised Prophets will be raised not from the Jews, but from the Brethren of Jews. Arabs are the Brethren of Jews because they are from Ismail who was brother of Isaac. Jews are the sons of Isaac. The Promised Prophet is to come from Sons of Ismail. I think you will not like this interpretation. Your Bible has been edited, modified, revised so many times to suit the will/requirement of your Popes that it is very difficult to find out truth from it. Every version is different from another version. Some Bible are having 66 books, some are having more than 70 books. Now tell me which one is to follow, Bible with 66 books or Bible with 73 books?. You are commenting on Islam without reading Quran & Hadith. But whatever I talk about Christianity, it is with the full understanding of Bible& I am always quoting from Bible..

Spirit of the truth is never synonymous with messenger. A messenger is a carrier of the message. A Prophet is one who exercised the gift of prophecy. Spirit of the truth is a spirit of God, that inspired a prophet. A prophet may be influenced by the Spirit but this does not make him the spirit. A messenger is not his message. Arab descended from Ishmael and not from Isaac. They are not the brethren of Jacob. But the word referred to the brethren to whom the prophet would focused not to their ancestry. The whole of prophecy in the torah repeated the same things about the coming of the holy one. Ishmael according to the Old Testament should not inherit the promise of Abraham. He was driven out of Abraham's house. The bible of 21 century is the same with any bible ever discovered that were written in any centuries. The Torah are the books of the Jew. No version of the bible differed to any other. It is only you Muslim saying that versions are different. I have not discovered any bible that is different to another in its entirety. Some scholars may not agree on some certain minor verses yet are always in unity as to the whole. The books whose authorship had not been identified are classified under apocryphal. My friend no one can be kidnapped to heaven. When the gospel is preached, if you believe you will be saved. If you believe not, you are already condemned. I know the content of Quran. I bought a Quran for myself when I was 13years old. When reading the Quran, it does not suggest that God was speaking to Mohammad. It looks more like poetry and literary narration. To have an idea of how God speaks, read the Old Testament. You are not reading the bible to understand it. If you read the bible you will find life.
I think you have read Quran at your early life or read it partially. Please read it now & you will find what it is. In whole Quran, Allah is speaking in First Person with imperative sentences, with commanding voices. See some examples. The first 5 sentences which revealed to Mohammad (PBUH) is-"1. Read, in the name of thy Lord & Cherisher, who created---, 2. Created man, out of a leech like clot.3. Read, and your Lord is most Bountiful. 4. He who taught (use of) the Pen 5. Taught man that he knew not." . Below is the example of a very small chapter from Quran-"1. Say; He is Allah, the One; 2. Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; 3. He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; 4. And there is none like unto Him". Sometimes Allah addresses specifically; like-" Oh mankind", " Oh son of Adam", " Oh people of Books", " Oh Believers" etc . Yes, we see similar style of talking in many places in Old Testament when God speaking directly. But the style in New Testament is quite different. A third person is describing everything & sometimes giving quotation from Jesus. It is just like our Hadith where a third person is telling about the actions, speeches, methods & day to day life of Mohammad (PBUH)
