Editorial Note
This is Volume 1 of the new U.S.A. Edition of the well-known researchwork 
Muhammad in World Scriptures,
in which the author brought to lightprophecies from all major world scriptures relating to the coming of the greatPromised One that were fulfilled through the advent and life of the HolyProphet Muhammad (may peace and the blessings of Allah be upon him).This Volume consists of the material relating to prophecies found in theBible, and corresponds to the second volume of the last 3-volumed edition,printed in Pakistan during the years 1966 to 1975.In producing the present Edition, it was absolutely essential to carry outa substantial and thorough revision, correction and rearrangement of the pre-vious edition. The main reason was that the previous publication was marredby frequent misprints, typesetting errors and mispositioning of text, many of which caused serious confusion in the text, and indeed in some places madeit impossible to follow the meaning. We, the Editors, briefly describe belowthe necessary revision and correction work that we carried out.Many of the misprints referred to above occurred within quotations givenfromencyclopaedias, commentaries,dictionaries andsimilarreferenceworks.It was therefore necessary to find these original sources for comparison andchecking.

The vastmajority of the sources was located, the quotations were checked andcorrected, and full references added in the present edition. While searchingfor these quotations, there were a few instances when we found some addi-tional extracts in support of the point being argued by the author. These havebeen added to the present edition.Checking references in the Bible and the Holy Quran was, of course, aconsiderably easier task, though time-consuming nonetheless. As regards thequotations from the Bible, which naturally form the backbone of this volume,the author had used the King James Version, known also as the AuthorisedVersion (
). In view of the archaic language of this version, we decided toreplace it by the Revised Standard Version (
), which is much easier to
