Following the land/sea symbology of Israel/nations — when Jesus walks on water (as if it were land) do you think this is a type of the mystery revealed in the gospel (ie: the nations/waters are brought into God’s family/land)? Does Peter’s experience here foreshadow his initial comprehension of the mystery, followed by stumbling with the Judaizers (per Paul’s account in Galatians)?
Is there an ironic twist in Herod’s niece getting John the Baptist beheaded? An upside down protoevangelium?

Happy Easter! Today I discuss Easter as an event of new birth.

I’ve just recorded another Youtube video (see my first one here), this time on the subject of Acts 12 and the ways in Peter’s experience is modeled after Christ’s and Israel’s. Acts 12 was one of many exodus-themed parts of Scripture that we didn’t have the space to get into in Echoes of Exodus, but it will give you a flavour of the sort of things we explore in other passages.
