Did Moses meet Jesus?
Retrieve Adv. Video Tutorials 1. Advanced BLB. Matthew can give a more indirect presentation because careful readers of the Jewish Scriptures would have already been waiting for the new Moses. There are two foundational passages in the Scriptures that support this. First, in Deuteronomy —19, God promised the coming of a prophet like Moses.
I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. The second foundation for the biblical hope of a new Moses is that the future age of salvation is presented in terms of deliverance from Egypt.
Redemption and exodus are the main terms that point to Jesus as the new Moses. Isaiah speaks of a future salvation in the imagery of a new exodus. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Matthew does quite a number of things to connect Jesus to Moses, but one of the most obvious when reading through the Gospel as a whole is that Matthew presents Jesus as the teacher or prophet par excellence. Unlike Mark and Luke, Matthew has five distinct discourses. In other words, he bunches the teachings of Jesus together into large blocks. Even more than that, B. To label chapters as a prologue and chapters as an epilogue seems to give far too little emphasis to these important sections.
While the entire first discourse the Sermon on the Mount could be looked at from the perspective of Jesus as the new Moses, I will focus mainly on the set up to the sermon. Four things point to Matthew describing Jesus as the new Moses as he goes up to give the new law.
First, Matthew puts the sermon in the larger context of the coming of a new prophet. Just prior to the sermon in Matthew —17, Jesus hears John the Baptist has been thrown into prison. Matthew 3 portrays John as an Old Testament prophet, yet John himself prophecies one greater than he is about to come Matt — Matthew immediately identifies Jesus, through the account of his baptism, as the one who is greater than John Matt — Readers should then be attuned to the sequence of Matthew 4 into Matthew 5: John, the Old Testament prophet, is arrested, and his ministry ends, and only at that point does Jesus begin his own ministry.
Something very important has ended, and something even more important has begun. John is the last of the Old Testament prophets Matt —14 , and when he passes from the scene, an eschatologically new era commences. Now the prophet has come, and he is about to give his first teaching.
In Exodus 19, the description is of Moses ascending Sinai to receive the law. As others have noted, this particular phrase occurs only three times in the Greek Old Testament. This would be called the anaphoric use of the article.
But in Matthew , there is no immediately preceding mountain mentioned.
