Sermons on Prophet
In Deuteronomy 18:9-22 Moses speaks of a “prophet like Moses”, like himself, whom God will raise up. This prophet, who is the Lord Jesus Christ (see part 1), is the one who perfectly reveals God, identifies with his people, works great wonders among them, and saves them from their sins. In all of these things, Christ is not only like Moses but actually far surpasses him.
In Deuteronomy 18:9-22 God promises to raise up a “prophet like Moses” for the people of God, but Deuteronomy 34:10-12 indicates that this had not happened (written sometime after Moses’ death). Ultimately, though all prophets resemble Moses in some way, none are like him. Who is the prophet like Moses? Who fulfills the prophecy of Deuteronomy 18:9-22? The Lord Jesus Christ.
