The Superiority of Christ 7
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
The most prominent figure of the Old Testament was arguably Moses. Moses greatly influenced the nation of Israel because he brought the Law, and Israel’s life as a nation revolved around the Law.
John 1:17 KJV
“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.”
The Law was so associated with Moses that it is regularly called the “Law of Moses” in the Scriptures.
Deuteronomy 31:9 NKJV
“So Moses wrote this law and delivered it to the priests, the sons of Levi, who bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and to all the elders of Israel.”
The first recording of God’s word began with Moses.
The Ten Commandments were written by God Himself on tablets of stone.
Exodus 31:18 NKJV
“And when He had made an end of speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Moses two tablets of the Testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.”
Later on, Moses copied out what God had written into a book and added all the other sayings of God.
This book of the Law controlled every facet of Israel’s life.
Their worship, diet, marriages, holidays, legal system, sanitation etc was all controlled by the book of the Law, written by Moses.
Israel struggled to accept the Messiah because they considered themselves as followers of Moses.
The author of Hebrews, reveals the superiority of Christ over Moses.
Hebrews 3:3 NKJV
“For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He who built the house has more honor than the house.”
Moses operated as a servant, but Christ operated as a Son.
Hebrews 3:5a NKJV
“And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant,”
Christ served as a Son.
Hebrews 3:6 NKJV
“But Christ as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.”
May you rejoice in your sonship.
May God’s Fatherhood give you protection, guidance, favour and promotion in Jesus’ name.
