Jesus fulfilled Deuteronomy 18 perfectly. (1) He came from his Jewish brethren (Galatians 4:4). (2) Deuteronomy 18:18 says, “He shall speak to them all that I [God] command Him.” Jesus said, “I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things” (John 8:28; cf. John 12:49). Finally, (3) Jesus called himself a “prophet” (Luke 13:33) and the people considered him to be a prophet (Matthew 21:11; Luke 7:16; 24:19; John 4:19; 6:14; 7:40; 9:17).
Deuteronomy 18:18 clearly points to Jesus, acts 3 22 - 26 stimulates that this scripture points to Jesus, the following chapter 4: 2 declares that peter and the disciples were preaching to the people that resurrection of the dead was through Jesus, not Mohammad.
