I respect your belief but each time you contradict yourself. you seem to be confused wether Jesus is Prophet or son of God, like your comments in my other note. review your comments and you will see.
I'm not confused about who Jesus is. I believe the Holy Bible contains many different names and descriptions of Jesus. He is the Word, Messias Christ, Eternal High Priest, Lord and Savior, Son of God, Son of man, Rabbi, teacher, Master, Good Shepherd, the Life, the Truth and the Way, Prophet, etc.
while you believe that Jesus is son of God, how could it be that the Prophet in this verse is Jesus. What a big contradiction. you believe that Jesus is the son of God and still claim that the Prophet that Moses Prophesised is Jesus!
No contradiction. Please go back and read Deut. 18:15-19 again. Moses' command was that they listen to the Prophet God would send, whom "thou shalt hear". This PROPHET was to be, not like Joshua whom Moses invested with the leadership of Israel; not like the other prophets who functioned in Isreal before the beginning of the Christian era, but like Moses. He was to be a Mediator between man and Almighty God, but more excellent than Moses. Moses was a servant of the Lord whereas this PROPHET was to be the Lord Himself.
2- "I will raise up for them a Prophet like you".
*Jesus and moses are not alike.
Again in Deut. 18:15-19, Almighty God, speaking through Moses, called upon the Isrealites, then me and you and really everyone in the world, To "harken to the Prophet of thy nation, (Isreal) who would be "like unto me" (Moses).
That PROPHET is Christ who proved to be more like Moses than any other person in the hisptory of Israel.
Both expounded basic religious principles
Both were legislators
Both wrought miracles
Both were mediators between man and God the Father in Heaven
Both were rejected by their people
and both ended their lives in apparent failure.
Yet, OUr Lord Jesus Christ was greater than Moses in that much of what Moses taught was of a temporary nature, bieng binding only until their fulfillment by the coming Prophet, Christ.
Moses taught the shall nots, while Jesus taught the blessed art thous, which may be called the negative and positive of divine teachings.
Moses spoke to God the Father in a cloud; Jesus saw Him face to face.
Moses revealed the nature of God, the "IAM WHO AM" whereas Christ claimed to be the "I AM" and proved it by His life teachings and works.
Moses declared the terrors of sin while Christ saved from sin.
Moses sinned while Christ was sinless.
Moses offered the blood of beasts for sacrifice while Christ offered His own Precious Blood for sacrifice.
Moses selected 12 spies while Christ selected 12 Apostles.
Moses selected Joshua as his successor while Christ designated Peter as His ambassador and Vicar on earth.
Moses brought a Covenant obtained from God on Mt. Sinai for the children of Isreal, whereas CHrist, the One Good Shepherd, whom the prophet Ezechiel said would come to shepherd a flock from all parts of the earth instituted a New and Everlasting Covenant in His blood foretold by Jeremias. This New Covenant which was to succeed the Mosaic Covenant embodied a Church universal in character which Christ established on Cephas, the rock, St.Peter.
