“Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and deeds” [Acts 7:22].
Such was the description that was written of Moses the man of God. One can well understand this of the man who was drawn from the water by Pharaoh’s daughter, nursed by his own mother, and then brought up and educated in all the wisdom of that great dynasty of the Pharaohs. It is no wonder that it is recorded of him that he was a man mighty in wisdom. Moses is a type of Christ in his wisdom and mighty deeds.
What shall I say of the Lord Jesus Christ? His enemies asked, “Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?” [Matthew 13:54]. Ah, but the Lord Jesus Christ is Himself the Wisdom of God, and he Himself is the Power of God.
“Never man spake like this man” [John 7:46]. Moses had to unlearn the wisdom of Egypt, because it was worldly wisdom, but the wisdom of the Lord Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God, the wisdom of the Lord of Glory. And never man worked like this man. He, like Moses, was mighty in deeds. Those who receive His Word will experience His favour. If men had been wise, not with the wisdom of this world, but with the wisdom of the other world, they would not have crucified the Lord of Glory and put Him to an open shame. [Dr. Ian R. K. Paisley].
