Where Does Moses Prophesy of Jesus' Coming?

Ijaz Ahmad posted an item where claims to he "broke" a missionary who couldn't answer his question about where Moses prophesies of Jesus' coming. There are doubtless many ways in which Moses pointed to Jesus' coming. The most obvious and explicit one is this:
Deuteronomy 18:15-19
The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; according to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
But there are many more ways in which Moses prophesied of Jesus' coming. The entire sacrificial and Levitical system pointed forward to Jesus (the unspotted Lamb of God) and the need for Jesus to come and serve as a sacrifice for his people.
