Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 3:22-26

_ _ a prophet ... like unto me — particularly in intimacy of communication with God (Numbers 12:6-8), and as the mediatorial Head of a new order of things (Hebrews 3:2-6). Peter takes it for granted that, in the light of all he had just said, it would be seen at once that One only had any claim to be that Prophet.

_ _ him shall ye hear in all things, etc. — This part of the prediction is emphatically added, in order to shut up the audience to the obedience of faith, on pain of being finally “cut off” from the congregation of the righteous (Psalms 1:1).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 3:12-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 3:22

The Lord shall raise you up a prophet like unto me — And that in many particulars. Moses instituted the Jewish Church: Christ instituted the Christian. With the prophesying of Moses was soon joined the effect, the deliverance of Israel from Egypt: with the prophesying of Christ that grand effect, the deliverance of his people from sin and death. Those who could not bear the voice of God, yet desired to hear that of Moses. Much more do those who are wearied with the law, desire to hear the voice of Christ. Moses spake to the people all, and only those things, which God had commanded him: so did Christ. But though he was like Moses, yet he was infinitely superior to him, in person, as well as in office. Deuteronomy 18:15.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 3:22

For Moses truly said unto the fathers, (g) A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

(g) This promise referred to an excellent and singular Prophet.
