God promised another prophet like Moses

Bible passage: Deuteronomy 18:15-18
Prophet: Moses
Written: As early as 1400 BC

In Deuteronomy 18:15-18, Moses told the Jews that God would raise up another prophet like Moses. After Moses, there was a succession of prophets, including Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and others. As pointed out in the book, 100 Prophecies:

" Like Moses, Jesus combined the offices of prophet, priest, leader, and deliverer. None of the other prophets combined all of those functions."
- 100 Prophecies, Chapter 4.

The lives of Jesus and Moses shared many similarities. Both were delivered from death as infants. Both were prophets. Both performed miracles. Both were leaders. And both were willing to die for the sins of others. Moses offered to die, if necessary, if God would forgive the sins of the people that Moses was leading (see Exodus 32:30-33), although God did not accept his offer. Jesus did die for our sins, so that people could enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

Here is Deuteronomy 18:15-18:

15 The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to him.

16 For this is what you asked of the LORD your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said, "Let us not hear the voice of the LORD our God nor see this great fire anymore, or we will die."

17 The LORD said to me: "What they say is good.

18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him.
