Moses, a Picture of Christ, Some Unusual Shadows

The ones I’ve added today are those that were really new to me.  Everyone has heard how both Moses and Jesus were humble or were shepherds.  But the last few I’ve added were not something I had already known, even though I’ve read the verses many times.  Surely some of this is new to you also.

Moses, a Picture of Christ

For months now I have been studying the comparison and contrast between Moses on Mount Sinai and Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount.  I have learned much and read verses with much better understanding than ever before.

This is just a portion of how Moses was a picture of the future Christ.  I added Scripture references as I found them.  I’ll add more tomorrow.

(Note the chart looks just fine on my preview but it maybe distorted in a feed or in different formats. :()
