comment Does Paul use a “Double Meaning” in his statement, “They were all baptised into Moses in the cloud and in the sea.”
@Bagpipes - I read the informative article (thanks). The Day of Pentecost (Feast of Weeks) was the day when the Word of God came down from heaven and was written on stones (giving of Law at Sinai-Old Covenant). On the same date the same Spirit writes the laws on hearts of flesh (New Covenant-Pentecost). The Israelites who escaped Egypt did not believe the word of God (unbelief) notwithstanding that the Divine Presence led them out of the slavery of Egypt. In a like manner, when people "taste" the power of God (Heb 6:4-5), but do not ingest/drink the living water, they too stand to fall away.

@Bagpipes - The Israelites in Egypt were saved from their physical bondage (through Moses) but not through their spiritual bondage (through the Lord). The difference was not "baptism," but whether or not faith was operative in the heart. The seed that withered in the sun (Matt 13:20) is an excellent illustration: The one on whom seed was sown on the rocky places, this is the man who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet he has no firm root in himself, but is only temporary, and when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he falls away.
