God Will Raise Up a Prophet

God Will Raise Up a Prophet


Deuteronomy 18:15-18 — Deuteronomy opens with a reminder of both Moses’ failure as Israel’s God-appointed leader and the punishment he would receive.  Moses’ failure combines with his important place both in both Israel and in the Bible’s larger story to raise questions about Israel and humanity’s ongoing relationship with God.  Those questions lead to God’s promise to raise up a prophet like Moses, a promise that finds its ultimate fulfillment in Jesus.  This lesson will explore that promise and ways in which Jesus fulfilled it to help us better understand his place within the Bible and the place he ought to have within our lives
