Introduction: Moses brought to Israel the following promise of God:

“ 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 commend Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him”( Deuteronomy 18:18-19).

These are the prophetical words of Moses. These words clearly establish three facts:

  1. First, Moses here describes one particular prophet. God promises to send Him to Israel at a later time.” He shall speak”.
  2. Second, this prophet was to have unique authority above all others.
  3. Third, this prophet was to be like Moses in ways that would distinguish him from all other prophets.

The Apostle Peter quoted these words of Moses and applied them directly to Jesus of Nazareth. There are 26 distinct points of resemblance between Moses and Jesus. The similarities are grouped according to three main headings:

  • Childhood
  • Personal experiences
  • Ministry

Memory Work:

Deuteronomy 18:18 “I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in his mouth, and He will speak to them all that I command Him”.


In each case, Satan the great enemy of Israel, sought to destroy God’s appointed deliverer before he could fulfil his task. Each was preserved through the faith and courage of his parents.

Both Moses and Jesus were equipped by God with special intellectual gifts. Both relied on God’s supernatural power, not on their own natural strength. People of Israel exhibited wrong attitudes. These wrong attitudes can keep God’s people from recognising or honouring the deliverer whom God has sent to them.

Both Moses and Jesus were willing to bear the punishment of God’s people , but only Jesus could be accepted by God because He Himself was without sin(Heb.7:26-27).

Both Moses and Jesus were developed on personal communion with God. The results of this communion were manifested in various unique ways.The Name of God reveals the nature of God. Through Moses, God revealed Himself as eternal and unchanging, through Jesus He revealed Himself as Father (See Matt.11:27; Rom.8:15).

The manna provided through Moses only sustained temporary, physical life. Some of those who ate it died later under God’s judgement ( See Num. 14:22-23,32; 26:63-65). But through Jesus, the believers receive eternal life ( See John 6:47-51).

The slavery from which Moses delivered Israel was physical; the slavery from which Jesus delivers the believer is spiritual. Israel broke the first covenant that God made with them, but God promised to make a new covenant that would provide forgiveness of all their sins(Jer.31:31-34). Jesus came to institute this new covenant.


This study brings out 26 points of clear resemblance between Moses and Jesus. It would be impossible to find any other prophet who has arisen in Israel, except Jesus, who resembles Moses in even a small number of these points. Therefore, it is unreasonable to deny that Jesus is the Prophet whom Moses foretold in Deuteronomy 18:18-19.

Jesus is the Prophet whom Moses foretold. It is of the utmost importance for us to recognise this fact and act upon it. God said concerning this Prophet: “ Whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, blessing if we acknowledge Him”(Deut.18:19). The choice, then is between the judgement of God or His blessing: Judgement if we reject Jesus, God’s Prophet; Blessing if we acknowledge Him.
