A Prophet Like Moses (AM)

Scripture Reading:  Deuteronomy 18:18–19


A.  Before Moses’ death, God promised that another would rise up in his likeness (Deuteronomy 18:18–19).

B.  Although many prophets came after Moses, the Scripture says that none had risen like him (Deuteronomy 34:10).


I.  What was so unique about Moses?

A.  The LORD “knew him face to face” (Deuteronomy 34:10; cf. Exodus 33:11, 20, 23; Numbers 12:6–8).

B.  He worked amazing “signs and wonders” (Deuteronomy 34:11–12; Exodus 7:3; 11:9; 4:29–31; 12:13; Numbers 14:11).

C.  He was buried by God Himself (Deuteronomy 34:6; cf. Jude 9).

II.  Many prophets seemed like Moses in various ways.

A.  Elijah was similar to him in many respects (1 Kings 19:8, 14–16; 2 Kings 2:17).

B.  Jeremiah was also similar in some ways (Jeremiah 1:5–10).

C.  We might also compare the prophet Ezekiel to Moses (Ezekiel 40:1–2).

III.  The prophet like Moses is none other than Jesus Christ.

A.  Moses spoke with God, but Jesus is the very image of God (John 14:8; Hebrews 1:1–4; Colossians 1:15).

B.  Moses performed great signs, but Jesus worked greater ones (John 10:41; 7:31; 3:2; 1:17–18).

C.  Moses was buried by God, but Jesus was raised by Him (Acts 3:11–24; Romans 6:4).


A.  Jesus is not just like Moses; He is greater (Hebrews 3:3; 8:6).

B.  Jesus is the one to whom we must look as “the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2).
