If these are the only two criteria for discovering a candidate for this prophecy of Deuteronomy 18:18, then in that case the criteria could fit any one of the following Biblical personages after Moses: Solomon, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Malachi, John the Baptist etc., because they were also ALL “Jews” as well as “Prophets”.
Why should we not apply this prophecy to any one of these prophets, and why only to Jesus? Why should we make fish of one and fowl of another?”
You see, my conclusions are that Jesus is most unlike Moses, and if I am wrong I would like you to correct me.
Let’s analyse them:
In the FIRST place Jesus is not like Moses, because, according to You – ‘JESUS IS A GOD’, but Moses is not God. Right? Therefore, Jesus is not like Moses!
SECONDLY, ‘Jesus died for the sins of the world’, but Moses did not have to die for the sins of the world. Did he? Therefore Jesus is not like Moses
THIRDLY, according to You – ‘Jesus went to hell for three days’, but Moses did not have to go there. Did he ? Therefore Jesus is not like Moses either.
But these are not hard facts, solid facts, they are mere matters of belief over which the little ones can stumble and fall. Let us discuss something very simple, very easy that if your little ones are called in to hear the discussion, would have no difficulty in following it, shall we?
