‘I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth.
He will tell them everything I command him.
I myself will call to account anyone who does not listen to
my words that the prophet speaks in my name.’
One of the earliest predictions of the coming Christ, was given for encouragement as well as warning. The passage also says that this prophet would not come with the fearsome demonstration of Sinai. He would speak with grace and truth (Jn. 1:17).
