Biblical prophecy and Coranic prophecy

Rémi Chéno, « Prophétie biblique et prophétie coranique », Nouvelle Revue théologique 132 (2010) 434–447.

Islam presents itself as an all embracing system claiming total and extensive comprehension of the world. Prophecy fulfils the originating law within it, the creative divine decree whose knowledge constitutes a return to the first, hidden meaning which is always anterior and always already given. Christianity, in a contrary sense, awaits for an accomplishment of everything human in Christ, the new Adam who recapitulates creation. The work of the Spirit relates back to an eschatological “excess” or “surplus” always to come and not yet given except in outline, in Christ.
