Hebrews 1:1-2 concerning the definition of prophets and apostles?
Christian PLEASE NOTE:
Hebrews 1: 1-2 in ancient times God spoke through the prophets in the last day God spoke through Christ.
Then the disciples of Jesus who became a living witness of Christ's continuing message of Christ and called the Apostles. So the prophets existed before Jesus, the Apostles there after Jesus ascended to heaven.
Now the world does not need a prophet because Jesus has come, no Apostle anymore Because the Scripture is Enough and all the witness have already dead.
Based on the Christian understanding, prophets and apostes are not needed any more. That is why Christians do not recognize that Muhammad as a prophet nor apostle. (Remember the above opinion based on the christian definition , while the Islamic the definition is different).
so for them Muhammad was the prophet and apostles.
The Bible is complete for the declaration of God to man. no more books that need to be added to nor reduced . What is needed now is the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit when we read the Bible.
The end time is the end of the last day, (just a moment), all men either already dead or still alive will from judge by god, and nothing is right before God. all humans have fallen into the sin of losing the glory of God, the wages of sin is death. (Romans 3: 23 and Romans 6:23), that's part for human beyond god.
WHO believe in Christ, will not perish Because Christ has died for him (John 3:16) Supreme court Justice Recognize and care of his sheep. They are appointed for life with Christ in communion with God (Eph 1: 10)
Then Satan and his followers were thrown into the bottomless pit. All sinners will be included to Satan (Revelation 20-22)
Remember the judge is Christ. He is entitled to the Christians, come to Jesus and learn well, hear the word - the word of Jesus and his teachings. obey the command and live it.: "be ye love one another" John 15:7 - 16
Be witness to life as the ransom. (Matthew 25: 30-37)
Remember that great Judge is Christ. .so if we want to pass the exams we have to learn from professors who test us. if we want to enter in communion with Him, learn of Him who will be the final judge.
So that we have the same understanding on it

Hebrews 1 (King James Version)
1God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
4Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
6And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
7And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
9Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
10And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
11They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
12And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
13But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
14Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Prophets are always part of the Church:
Eph 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
Eph 4:12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Why do you hunt for legitimacy for Mohammad.
