Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 18:15


18:15 Will raise up - Will produce and send into the world in due time. A prophet like unto me - Christ was truly, and in all commendable parts like him, in being both a prophet and a king and a priest and mediator, in the excellency of his ministry and work, in the glory of his miracles, in his familiar and intimate converse with God.


Discussion for Deuteronomy 18:15

  • Callistus for verse 15
    Jesus is that prophet and God confirmed this during the transfiguration of Jesus on the mount but the question is,do we here Him today? do we keep his commandments? Many today have twisted his teachings to meet their their whims and caprices not minding that they are on their way to hell . Note John12:48 and Matt7:21. May God help his people who are being deceived every day. Amen
