If you look back over your life, who is the greatest leader you have ever worked under or been around? How would you describe them? Do others agree about their leadership? If you asked the ancient Jews this question, the answer would be answered unanimous as Moses—the greatest leader and prophet they had ever known. If you were a first-century Jew, Moses was your hero. He delivered God’s Word to Israel and oversaw the establishment of the tabernacle and the sacrificial system. So, these Jewish Christian readers revered Moses as the great patriarch and shepherd of Israel during the exodus.

Moses faithfully served God. But as great as Moses was, Jesus is still superior. The writer of Hebrews shows us the Son's superiority over Moses by comparing the builder of a building with the building itself. No matter how grand a building may be, its creator or architect always gets the greater glory than the building itself. Although Moses served faithfully within Israel, Jesus Christ created Israel. A servant in the house of God is another way of saying that Moses is a member of the team. And while Moses was an important part of the household, we must recognize that Jesus built the house and is in charge over the house. So, you should respect and appreciate Moses, and even other great leaders in the faith, but don’t put them next to Jesus because Jesus is in a class all by himself.

Lets make His name famous !

“You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.””

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭1:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
