The prophecy in Deuteronomy 18 pointed to Jesus being a prophet like unto Moses, but we don’t often think of Jesus as being a prophet – let alone a better prophet than Moses. Why is Jesus, as a prophet, important to us?
I suspect there was one last “excuse” Moses had for why he didn’t want to obey God. Do you know what that excuse might have been?
Are you shy about sharing your faith? So was Moses. He was “slow of speech.” Learn how Moses would conquer that fear.
God gave Moses 3 miracles to convince the Israelites God had sent him. But these miracles seem (to me) to be fairly unimpressive – a little like “parlor tricks.” Why would God ask Moses to use them to convince the Elders of Israel that God had sent him?
Moses didn’t want to go to Egypt. But why would he bring up the issue of what God’s name was, and what can God’s answer to Moses mean to us?
Moses didn’t want to do what God asked. He didn’t think he was worthy or capable… and he was right. So what made the difference in his life?
Moses had it all – power, prestige, and position. He was the son of Pharaoh’s daughter and was destined to be a man of prominence. But then he said no to all that. Why did he do that, and what can that mean to us?
