Hebrews 11:24-26 – Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater ……
Heb 11:24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;
Heb 11:25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
Heb 11:26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
Many have questioned the Greek word here, “Χριστος” (Christ), because they cannot see how Moses would have any knowledge of him. Let’s first keep in mind that this word means “anointed”. It also can be said that it was just as easy for God to reveal Christ to Moses, as it was for him to reveal him to Isaiah, or to the shepherds, or to John Baptist; or to manifest him in the flesh.
It is of him he prophesied in Deut 18:15. The Apostle Paul (whom most accredit the writings of Hebrews) reintroduced the spiritual connection between Christ and the prophet foretold by Moses (John 5:46-47; Acts 3:18-23, 26; 7:37). Moses looked forward to the “reward” as he states (Hebrews 11:26), just as Abraham rejoiced (John 8:58-59). Furthermore, Paul substantiated that God was “invisible” (Hebrews 11:27) (Colossians 1:15-20, 1Timothy 1:16-17)
