33 - A Prophet Like Moses [b]

33 - A Prophet Like Moses [b]

The large percentage of Jews in the church in Acts were well versed in the wording and vocabulary of the Old Testament and the Mosaic Law. They also had a great sense that some radical change was afoot, that something important was about to take place. So when Peter used specific, distinct vocabulary and phrases when he spoke to them in Acts 3:23, they were sure to have recognized immediately that he was quoting from Deut. 18:15 and comparing the prophet Moses to the Prophet to come. But what was so distinct and unique about Moses compared to other prophets? Who was this Prophet to come? In this lesson, we learn that these two prophets had in common the role of legislator, mediator, royalty, and leadership.
