Jesus (pbuh) answered: As God liveth, in whose presence my soul standeth, I am not the Messiah whom all the tribes of the earth expect, even as God promised to our father Abraham (pbuh), saying: "In thy seed will I bless all the tribes of the earth." But when God shall take me away from the world, Satan will raise again this accursed sedition, by making the impious believe that I am God and son of God, whence my words and my doctrine shall be contaminated, insomuch that scarcely shall there remain thirty faithful ones: whereupon God will have mercy upon the world, and will send His messenger for whom he hath made all things; who shall come from the south with power, and shall destroy the idols with the idolaters; who shall take away the dominion from Satan which he hath over men. He shall bring with him the mercy of God for salvation of them that shall believe in him, and blessed is he who shall believe his words. 'Unworthy though I am to untie his shoes, I have received grace and mercy from God to see him.' ...
Then said the priest: 'How shall the Messiah be called, and what sign shall reveal his coming?' Jesus (pbuh) answered: 'The name of the Messiah is admirable, for God Himself gave him the name when He had created his soul, and placed it in a celestial splendor. God said: "Wait Mohammed (pbuh); for for thy sake I will create paradise, the world, and a great multitude of creatures, whereof I make thee a present, insomuch that whoso shall bless thee shall be blessed, and whoso shall curse thee shall be cursed. When I shall send thee into the world I shall send thee as my messenger of salvation, and thy word shall be true, insomuch that heaven and earth shall fail, but thy faith shall never fail."Mohammed (pbuh) is his blessed name.' [The Gospel of Barnabas]
