Day 92 of 100 prophecies fulfilled by Jesus – Be a prophet like Moses

a prophet like Moses                                                   A prophet like Moses

Deut. 18:18-19 – ‘I will raise up a prophet from among their countrymen like you, and I will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. 19‘It shall come about that whoever will not listen to My words which he shall speak in My name, I Myself will require it of him.

John 6:14 –
When the people saw the sign that he had done, they said, “This is indeed the Prophet who is to come into the world!”

Editor’s note: I think it was really cool that Moses met up with Jesus at the Mount of Transfiguration. This prophecy about Jesus is that He would be like Moses. Maybe some people thought He was.

  1. That is a neat thing, them meeting like that. Even though I know the story well, your comment enhanced its significance. I’m sitting here contemplating the similarities and differences between Jesus and Moses.
    Both were rescued by God from grave danger as babies, Moses hidden in the basket to later be rescued by pharoah’s daughter …and Jesus, when His family had to flee to Egypt to save His life from Herod.
    Both brought the Words of God to the people…although Moses, not having the gift of communication, relied on Aaron some and God much ( to put the Words in his mouth). It has always seemed to me that Jesus was a natural teacher, drawing people to himself with his wisdom and compassion. (Because Jesus was fully God and fully Human, I think God put His words on Jesus’ heart)
    Both were Hebrew Levites.
    Moses received the 10 commandments on Mt.Sinai and some would say that Jesus reinterpreted them in His sermon on the mount.
    Moses carried the law and pointed to the gospel. Jesus fulfilled the law and Is the Gospel.
    Moses met God at a burning Bush that was not consumed. God meets us through Jesus’ body that was hung on a tree, withstood the fire of God’s punishment for our sins but He was not consumed!
    * Much of this, I found by reading a blog on the topic by Austin Gentry, a young adults pastor in a Baptist Church.
    I don’t know enough to endorse any theologian, but I found his thoughts interesting. If you want to read more of his thoughts on this topic, here’s the piece I read.
