3,000 Baptized

In Acts 2, 3,000 people are baptized. This event takes us back to the Exodus narrative when Moses received the two tablets of the Law and the people committed idolatry in the sight of God. Moses destroyed their pagan idols and scattered it on the water and made the people drink. On that day, 3,000 people were killed. But on Pentecost, there is a reversal. The Spirit is poured out on the people, and 3,000 are baptized. In one scene, the waters represent death and idolatry, and on Pentecost, the waters represent life and loyalty to God.
