Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:2


10:2 And were all, as it were, baptized unto Moses - initiated into the religion which he taught them. In the cloud and in the sea - Perhaps sprinkled here and there with drops of water from the sea or the cloud, by which baptism might be the more evidently signified.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 10:2


1Co 10:2 Were all baptized to Moses. Canon Cook says: ``The two phrases, "Were under the cloud", and "Passed through the sea", seem to prefigure the double process of submersion and emersion in baptism.'' Observe that the Israelites by this event, left Egypt, escaped from Pharaoh, and entered upon their march, with Moses as their leader, even as Christians leave the Egypt of sin behind, and start upon the Christian life, when they are "baptized into Christ". One of the church Fathers, Theodoret, says: ``The sea of transition represents the laver of regeneration, Moses foreshadows Christ, Israel the baptized disciples, the pursuing Egyptians are the sins left behind, and Pharaoh is a type of the devil.''
