Matthew 2


Moses, in his address to the children of Israel, said, "The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken" (Deuteronomy 18:15).


In Matthew 2 alone, we can observe such striking resemblances in the lives of Moses and Jesus. Let's examine a few of these resemblances:

  1. Pharaoh’s daughter was given a child, just as Mary was given baby Jesus.

  2. Moses was raised among Egyptians, though he was a Hebrew, just as Jesus was raised among humanity, though He was divine.

  3. Pharaoh instructed that all male children be killed, just as Herod ordered the murder of them as well. Both Moses and Jesus were divinely protected by God during such macabre times.

  4. They both were called out of Egypt.

  5. Moses was chosen to be the deliverer of the people of Israel, just as Jesus was chosen to be the Lamb of God who can deliver any person from sin.

  6. Moses and Jesus worked miracles to convince the people that they were sent from God to be their deliverer.

  7. Moses was given the laws of God to dispense to the children of Israel, just as Jesus writes the laws of God in the hearts of the believers.

These are just a few of the symbols we can see in the comparison between Jesus and Moses. It becomes evident that Matthew is doing an exceptional job showing that Jesus is indeed the Jewish Messiah.

They both were instructed to take time away in the wilderness as preparation for their ministry. I liked that a lot
