In this sermon with guest speaker Dr. James Hamilton, we explore the connection between the Old Testament foundation for baptism in Exodus 15 and the New Testament foundation for Peter saying that the flood corresponds to baptism.
The chiastic structure of the song in Exodus informs us about Moses’ intent for the Israelites thousands of years ago and help us relate this passage to our faith today.
15:1–2 I will sing to Yahweh
15:3–4 Yahweh Conqueror . . . Pharaoh . . . into the sea
15:5–10 The Deep/Floods Covered Egypt
15:11–12 Who Is Like You?
15:13–17 New Exodus Conquest of a New Eden
15:18–19 Yahweh King . . . Pharaoh . . . into the sea
15:20–21 Sing to Yahweh
Takeaway: worship looks back to look forward.
