John 1:21
“Are you the Prophet we are expecting?”
“No.”

 

Elijah isn’t even the most important prophet in Jesus’ day. Moses is #1. In Deuteronomy 18:15-18 God promises to send a prophet like Moses to lead the people.

 
“…I will raise up a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell the people everything I command him.”

 
This unknown like-Moses prophet is expected by the people of Jesus’ day. John said, “No,” to this prophet, too. John is getting ready for someone else.
A hint of this prophet arriving will come later in the Gospel of John. After the feeding of the Five Thousand the Jewish people think Jesus is this great prophet. (John 6:14)
When those men saw the sign which He had done, they then said, “This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world.”
But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves!

What does it mean to you that God is already talking about Jesus to Moses?
