The Awe of the Witness
Dear brothers and sisters,
God, through Moses, offered a promise: a prophet like me will the Lord raise up for you. That promise was fulfilled in Christ: He is the prophet like Moses, inasmuch as He, God eternal, became man for us. But He is more than Moses: He is the one who, as we saw in the Gospel, brought a new teaching with authority. His word did what was said: He not only spoke about God’s salvation, but He saved and healed.
