A Prophet like Moses

THE HEBREW SCRIPTURES

The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear... "I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him". (Deuteronomy 18:15-18)

THE RABBINIC WRITINGS

And a right Prophet [a Prophet of Righteousness] will the LORD your God give you, a Prophet from among you of your brethren like unto me with the Holy Spirit, will the Lord your God raise up unto you; to Him shall ye be obedient. (Targum Palestine, Targum Jerusalem)

In fact the Messiah is such a Prophet as is stated in the Midrash on the verses, ‘Behold my servant shall prosper ...’ Moses by the miracles which he wrought drew but a single nation to the worship of God, but the Messiah will draw all nations to the worship of God. (Rabbi Levi ben Gershom)

We may all feel thankful that the Jewish race was so prolific in great men, that even so late in history, it produced one (Jesus) who deserves to be compared with Moses, Isaiah and Hillel. (Rabbi Adolph Moses, The Courier Journal 1885)

THE NEW TESTAMENT

... that He may send Jesus the Messiah, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said to the fathers, "The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brethren. Him you shall hear in all things, whatever He says to you". (Acts 3:20-22)

Then those men, when they had seen the sign that Jesus did, said, "This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world." (John 6:14)

And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, "Who is this?" So the multitudes said, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee." (Matthew 21:10-11)

God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds. (Hebrews 1:1-2)
