“This is the Moses who said to the Israelites, ‘God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your brothers.’”
Stephen pointed the Jews to the very words of Moses, who spoke of Jesus. If they claimed to listen to the lawgiver, they should have welcomed the grace-bringer.
Prophecy ought to create and strengthen faith in God’s work. The Old Testament deserves much reading and study. Jesus is also present there. How is my Bible reading going?
