The Story of Patriarchs and Prophets
by Ellen G. White
NOTE 7. PAGE 366. That the One who spoke the law, who called
Moses into the mount and talked with him, was our Lord Jesus Christ,
is evident from the following considerations:
Christ is the one through whom God has at all times revealed Himself
to man. "But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are
all things, and we in Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are
all things, and we by Him." 1 Corinthians 8:6. "This is he [Moses],
that was in the church in the wilderness with the Angel which spake
to him in the mount Sinai, and with our fathers: who received the
lively oracles to give unto us." Acts 7:38. This angel was the Angel of
God's presence (Isaiah 63:9), the Angel in whom was the name of the
great Jehovah (Exodus 23:20-23). The expression can refer to no other
than the Son of God.
Again: Christ is called the Word of God. John 1:1-3. He is so called
because God gave his revelations to man in all ages through Christ. It
was His Spirit that inspired the prophets. 1 Peter 1:10, 11. He was
revealed to them as the Angel of Jehovah, the captain of the Lord's
host, Michael the Archangel.
