Moses and the Law

One of the greatest leaders of God’s people was Moses, whom God used to bring his people out of Egypt where they had been held in slavery. In addition, God gave Moses laws so the people could live in harmony and peace. Moses went on to accomplish many great things for his people, but he knew there was still one to come greater than he. Moses said to the people:

“The Lord your God will give you a man who speaks for God like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to him.”
– Deuteronomy 18:15

Jesus was the fulfillment of the propechy of Moses, and he is also the fulfillment of the Law. The Law taught God’s people the right ways to love God and their neighbor. Jesus was to teach the same love, only that it should come from the heart. And, since no one but Jesus was able to keep the whole law, he is the only way we can be found acceptable to the Father.
