Jesus, the Prophet Greater Than Moses

20141016_MosesProphet

This article is part 2 in a series titled Jesus, the Truer and Greater Moses, in which we look at how the life and ministry of Moses is but a shadow of Jesus Christ. You can read part 1 here.

When you consider the question, “Who was Moses?”, what is the first word that comes to mind?

“Prophet” is likely your answer. After all, Moses is often considered the prophet of all Old Testament prophets. He’s the one that spoke on God’s behalf not only to Israel, but to Pharaoh and the Egyptians too. His famous line, “Let my people go,” would mark the beginning of the Jewish exodus from Egypt.

Moses, the Exodus, and the universal longing for a God who speaks

In the story of the Exodus, God’s people are enslaved and lost. They have not heard from the Lord for 400 years. Understandable, they longed to hear from Him again. They likely wondered, Did God still care? Would He keep His promise to their father Abraham? Would He ever deliver them? Reminiscing the days of their patriarch Abraham, they longed for the Lord to speak to them once more.

Jesus, the Truer and Greater Moses

In this article, we introduce a new blog series called Jesus, the Truer and Greater Moses.

Some people treat the Old Testament and New Testament as the Bible before Jesus and the Bible after Jesus, respectively. But to say this is to miss the point of the whole Book. The Old Testament is much more than just the “before Jesus” stuff. It’s more than just the story of Israel’s history. It’s the story of God preserving the seed of Christ which would come from Adam and Eve, on through Abraham, on through David, and would continue passing along until the proper time (or “fullness of time”) that Jesus would finally come to walk the ground He created (Gal. 4:4). It all points to Him. Thus, both the Old and New Testaments are about Jesus—the Old Testament is about the Messiah who is promised to come and the New Testament tells of the Messiah who has already come. READ MORE
