    Just finished watching the VOD and while it was a good stream I wish they could have dealt with the topic at hand a bit more. As far as I’m aware the biblical criteria for prophethood is three points.

    1) They must not make a false prophecy. Deuteronomy 18:22

    2) They must not call to false god’s. Deuteronomy 13:1–5

    3) They must not add or subtract from the law of Moses(a.s). Deuteronomy 4:2

    I should add that while these are the biblical criteria, extra biblical sources from the Jewish people add additional caveats such as that prophecy was removed from the gentiles and that prophecy itself has ended. See here https://judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/33467/among-the-gentiles-why-job-and-bilaam-were-recognized-as-prophets-whereas-muham

    Although upon reading Maimonides Epistle to Yemen he seems to not agree with those two caveats. When criticizing the prophethood of Prophet Muhammed(s.a.w) he doesn’t list either of these points and in fact says Jewish people don’t reject him for being an Arab but rather due to Islam’s view of the hebrew bible. He also says that prophecy will return to Israel before the messianic advent but he doesn’t elaborate on that so I don’t know what he’s referring to.

    Anyway a fun game I thought we could play is to see and list which biblical accounts of the prophets have them violate one of these biblical criteria. Because I’m pretty sure at least one prophet has violated one of the three criteria based on the biblical accounts.

        Do you have the answers from all the schools of thought available to you? If I had to pick one I suppose the salafi/athari school of thought. Sorry for the trouble and work you had to go through my brother.
