I know Muslims believe that Muhammad came after Jesus as the last prophet,
I think that islam is very unusual because of this. There is nothing to limit the number of people who god communicates with in other religions.
Jesus is supposed to have come to reform Judiasm (as it was supposed to have strayed from the true message of God),

What about Luther?
