Let’s take a look at eight ways Moses foreshadows the coming Messiah.
Just as Moses’ position was established via a declaration of God, so was the Messiah. There were no votes taken or a meeting held to achieve consensus. God declared it and that was that.
“A voice came from the cloud, saying, ‘This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.'”-Luke 9:35
Although Moses was a human being just like you and me, he was considered unique among all men on earth. The same goes for Messiah.
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”-John 1:14
God established Moses as the Head over His entire household Israel. The same goes for Messiah.
“And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.”-Matthew 2:6
Just as hot-tempered men rebelled again Moses’ authority, so did ruling religious elite rebel against Messiah.
“The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone you not; but for blasphemy; and because that you, being a man, make yourself an Elohim.”-John 10:33
NOTE: In this context “Elohim” means one who has authority. Contrary to gentile church interpretation, since the Pharisees would have never believed that this man was somehow Yahweh, it makes no sense that they would be saying that he said he was “God.” On the other hand, Yeshua was clearly teaching that he was sent by God and was doing God’s work. Thus, it makes perfect sense that the Pharisees would say he was claiming to be “as a god” or “divine.”
Moses was considered above God’s appointed prophets and even above the High Priest. In other words, as a MEDIATOR, in Israel Moses was considered above all. So was Messiah.
“Yeshua said, “I am the way — and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through me.”-John 14:6
Recall from Numbers Chapter 11 that if others wanted God’s Holy Spirit, it had to be drawn from Moses.
“Adonai came down in the cloud, spoke to him, took some of the Spirit that was on Moses and put it on the seventy leaders. When the Spirit came to rest on them, they prophesied — then but not afterwards.”-Numbers 11:25
The exact same thing happened with Messiah.
“But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.”-John 16:7
We are told that Moses was considered to be the most humble man on earth. So was Messiah humble and meek.
“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.“-Matthew 11:29
As a Mediator and Intercessor between God and men, Moses was NOT an intermediary being. He was 100% a man and and not a hybrid creature between God and man like an angel. The same goes for Messiah who was also 100% a man. To say that he was 100% man and 100% God by definition would make him something more than a man (no matter what the trinitarians say).
