The Pouring out of the Spirit
Summary: Near the beginning of Acts, a longstanding Jewish prophecy of God’s spirit being poured out is fulfilled. In the fulfilling of this prophecy we find that the restoration of God’s people and the pouring out of His Spirit flow together in the waters of baptism.
Scriptures: Numbers 11, Acts 2
Series Description: Metaphor and imagery are important concepts in connecting the narrative of Scripture. One important element is water, which is presented in both real and metaphorical instances. We find that water in Scripture often carries with it notes of transformation, redemption and salvation. This series explores the narrative use of water over the course of Scripture, culminating with a look at baptism and the ways in which many of those same redemptive elements are experienced in the waters of baptism.
