Failure to Obey Jesus is Disobedience to Moses

by Frank Jones

"Stephen proclaims the one to whom Moses pointed. A similar point is made by Peter in Acts 3. Peter, like Stephen, proclaims the one Moses spoke about. More than that, Moses said that ‘you must listen to everything he tells you. Anyone who does not listen to him will be completely cut off from among his people’ (3:22–23). Thus failure to listen to Jesus is disobedience to Moses and will incur the judgment of God." (italics mine. Thompson, Alan. Acts of the Risen Lord, 177).
