Had a good time on the program today reviewing comments made a number of years ago by Islamic lecturer and apologist Jamal Badawi regarding the alleged passages in the Bible that prophetically speak about Muhammad. I had been looking for his comments on Isaiah 9:6-7 for quite some time, and finally found them. Then we did a fun contest based upon two other texts Badawi called into service as being relevant to Muhammad (Isaiah 29 and Psalm 12), asking what other religious groups have used these texts in a similar fashion? Then closed out the program with a lengthy discussion with Louis from Canada regarding Ibn Ishaq and early Islamic sources. Don’t let the topic dissuade you, we concluded once again demonstrating that “theology matters” and that these are issues we as Christians need to stay focused upon.
