2 The Baptism of Jesus Christ Introduction This research paper is a discussion on how the Moses compares the parting of the Red Sea as exhibited in 1 Corinthians 10: 2 is compared to the Baptism of Jesus Christ. The research therefore not only provides an identity in how the parting of the Red Sea has a clear association with the Baptism of Jesus, but also presents the similarities between the two biblical events. The two events, the parting of the Red Sea and the baptism of Jesus can be deemed to have a close association in that while Moses was known to have led the Hebrews out of bondage or slavery to Egypt, Jesus Christ is known to lead the people out of slavery and sin to salvation 1 . According to 1 Corinthians 10:1-2, Paul associates baptism with the crossing of the Red Sea. For example, “… our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea; and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. 2 There is identity in the parting of the Red Sea and the Baptism of Jesus Paul clearly presents an interpretation of what occurred from the Old Testament in Numbers 20:11 and Exodus 14:22 as being something that not only lead to baptism, but also to Christ Himself. Bearing this in mind, it won’t be allegorical or wrong to assert that the Red Sea is a clear representation of the blood of Jesus Christ which has the ability of washing away sins and providing a path towards heaven. One of the significant identities that is prevalent between the crossing of the Red Sea and the baptism of Jesus Christ is quite apparently water. Based on the book of Acts 2:38, Israelites were not actually totally saved until after they had crossed the Red Sea. This is just like in the 1 Tilghman, Joshua.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
