Original Writings, Non-original Audience
Not all original writings are for original audience; obviously, what Moses wrote during his time were not for the audience of his time but for the audience of Jesus time 1,500 years later:
“It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote you this law,” Jesus replied.
“Teacher,” they said, “Moses wrote for us that if a man’s brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and raise up offspring for his brother.
Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me.Luke 24:44
Luke:He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”

Ask and You shall receive,
Seek and You shall find,
Knock and the door will be open unto You.
