The Prophet Like Moses
Deuteronomy 18:18-19
“I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren like unto thee, and will put my words into his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I command him. And it shall come to pass that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.”
Three things noticed about this scripture:

  1. The words and phrases used by Moses must refer unto a particular prophet and not prophets in general.
  2. This prophet is to have special authority above and beyond Moses because if anyone refuses to hearken it shall be required of him.
  3. This prophet was to be like Moses in ways that would distinguish him from all other prophets who were to come.

I submit unto you that this is speaking of none other than Jesus Christ himself and through careful study we can clearly see 27 points which shows a clear parallelism and resemblance between Moses and Jesus. Notice the following scriptures and comparisons.
