Did any prophet announce the mission of a future prophet, providing signs by which he would be known to be a prophet?

Did any prophet confirm that any prior prophets were in fact true prophets?

If the mission of a prophet was announced by a prior prophet, what are the references of this claim in the Torah and other holy books?

Hi saber tabatabaee yazdi and welcome to Mi Yodeya! Per our site policy questions about other religions are off-topic here as we can only be expected to be knowledgeable in Judaism. As such I have edited your answer to remove the parts that fall in that category. That said, I look forward to seeing you around! –  Double AA Dec 20 '12 at 7:48

What do you mean by "announce the mission of"? And by "confirm the prior prophets"? –  Tamir Evan Dec 20 '12 at 9:51

I'll quote one paragraph "A prophet is basically a spokesman for G-d, a person chosen by G-d to speak to people on G-d's behalf and convey a message or teaching. Prophets were role models of holiness, scholarship and closeness to G-d. They set the standards for the entire community." The message is often repentance or warning, not simply "1 god". –  Danno Dec 20 '12 at 14:06

Hello and welcome to Mi Yodeya. I hope you stick around and enjoy the site (and that it doesn't become banned in your country). So by "predict" do you mean "give signs by which we'll know a future prophet is really a prophet" and by "confirm" do you mean "verify that a previous prophet was in fact a true prophet"? –  Monica Cellio Dec 20 '12 at 15:12
