Jesus says in Matthew, “I  who am speaking to you am the very One who was responsible for the law of Moses; it was I who gave it to Moses, and it is I alone who can truly interpret it.”  Jesus’ authority is unique because unlike any other rabbi – He claims to speak as God.

Jesus is not  just  some mere teacher,  mere man,  expounder  of  the law,  another scribe, Pharisee or prophet.  He is infinitely more than that – He is God the Son in the flesh presenting the truth of God.
