SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:15 Â¶ Profeta de en medio de ti, de tus hermanos, como yo, te levantará el SEÑOR tu Dios; a él oiréis.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Deuteronomy 18:15 Verse 15. The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet] Instead of diviners, observers of times, &c., God here promises to give them an infallible guide, who should tell them all things that make for their peace, so that his declarations should completely answer the end of all the knowledge that was pretended to be gained by the persons already specified.
Like unto me] Viz., a prophet, a legislator, a king, a mediator, and the head or chief of the people of God. This was the very person of whom Moses was the type, and who should accomplish all the great purposes of the Divine Being. Such a prophet as had never before appeared, and who should have no equal till the consummation of the world.
This prophet is the Lord Jesus, who was in the bosom of the Father, and who came to declare him to mankind. Every word spoken by him is a living infallible oracle from God himself; and must be received and obeyed as such, on pain of the eternal displeasure of the Almighty. See ver. 19, and Acts iii. 22, 23; and see the conclusion of this chapter.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 15. The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a prophet , etc.] Not Joshua, as Aben Ezra, not Jeremiah, as Baal Haturim, nor David f224 , as others; nor a succession of prophets, as Jarchi; for a single person is only spoken of; and there is a dissimilitude between Moses and anyone of the prophets, and all of them in succession, ( Deuteronomy 34:10-12), but the Messiah, with whom the whole agrees; and upon this the expectation of a prophet among the Jews was raised, ( John 6:14) and is applied to him, and referred to as belonging to him in ( Acts 3:22 7:37), who was a prophet mighty in word and deed, and not only foretold future events, as his own sufferings and death, and resurrection from the dead, the destruction of Jerusalem, and other things; but taught and instructed men in the knowledge of divine things, spake as never man did, preached the Gospel fully and faithfully, so that as the law came by Moses, the doctrine of grace and truth came by him; and he was raised up of God, called, sent, commissioned and qualified by him for the office of a prophet, as well as was raised from the dead as a confirmation of his being that extraordinary person: from the midst of thee ; he was of Israel, according to the flesh, of the tribe of Judah, and of the house of David, born of a virgin in Bethlehem, preached only in Judea, and was raised from the dead in the midst of them, and of which they were witnesses: of thy brethren ; the Israelites, of whom, as concerning the flesh, Christ came, and to whom he was sent as a prophet, and among whom he only preached: like unto me ; the Targum of Jonathan adds, “in the Holy Spirit;” which he received without measure, and in respect of which was superior to Moses, or any of the prophets: he was like to Moses in the faithful discharge of his office, in his familiar converse with God, in the miracles which he wrought; as well as in his being a Mediator, and the Redeemer of his people, as Moses was a mediator between God and the people of Israel, and the deliverer of them out of Egypt; and it is a saying of the Jews f225 themselves, “as was the first redeemer, so is the second:” unto him ye shall hearken ; externally attend on his ministry, internally receive his doctrine, embrace and profess it; do what is heard from him, hear him, and not another, always and in all things; (see Matthew 17:5).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-22 - It is here promised concerning Christ, that there should come Prophet, great above all the prophets; by whom God would make know himself and his will to the children of men, more fully and clearl than he had ever done before. He is the Light of the world, Joh 8:12 He is the World by whom God speaks to us, Joh 1:1; Heb 1:2. In his birth he should be one of their nation. In his resurrection he shoul be raised up at Jerusalem, and from thence his doctrine should go fort to all the world. Thus God, having raised up his Son Christ Jesus, sen him to bless us. He should be like unto Moses, only above him. Thi prophet is come, even JESUS; and is "He that should come," and we ar to look for no other. The view of God which he gives, will not terrif or overwhelm, but encourages us. He speaks with fatherly affection an Divine authority united. Whoever refuses to listen to Jesus Christ shall find it is at his peril; the same that is the Prophet is to be his Judge, Joh 12:48. Woe then to those who refuse to hearken to Hi voice, to accept His salvation, or yield obedience to His sway! But happy they who trust in Him, and obey Him. He will lead them in the paths of safety and peace, until He brings them to the land of perfec light, purity, and happiness. Here is a caution against false prophets It highly concerns us to have a right touchstone wherewith to try the word we hear, that we may know what that word is which the Lord has no spoken. Whatever is against the plain sense of the written word, of which gives countenance or encouragement to sin, we may be sure is no that which the Lord has spoken __________________________________________________________________
