This article reflects on the possibility of comparing the role of Prophet Muḥammad for Muslims and the role of Jesus Christ for Christians as models and interpreters of Scripture. It discusses texts by Said Nursi about Prophet Muḥammad as interpreter of the Qur’ān, and texts from the New Testament about Jesus as interpreter of the Jewish scriptures.
