Audio: What Moses And Zipporah Mean For Baptism

Back in 2002 I gave a chapel talk on Exodus 4:24–26. It’s a difficult but not an impossible text.

“At a lodging place on the way the Lord met him and sought to put him to death. Then Zipporah took a flint and cut off her son’s foreskin and touched Moses’ feet with it and said, “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me!” So he let him alone. It was then that she said, “A bridegroom of blood,” because of the circumcision (ESV).

I referred to this text in a recent post on baptism so I thought it would be useful to make this audio useful to illustrate how this text informs a paedobaptist reading of redemptive history.

Here’s the audio:
