Note the Exodus Motif in Acts 18:1-11 -- Jews forced to leave an oppresive ruler and city; tentmakers; gathering (assembly); Sabbath; opposition towards God's word and the true and better Moses; malediction ("your blood be on your own heads"); a new Jepthah (Titius Justus), a devout next-door-to-the-Jews neighbor; whole households passed through the Red Sea of baptism ("water poured down" on them); divine vision and benediction / covenant promises and blessings; the word of God was given and received. (Acts 18:1-11; Deuteronomy 11:1-5, 8-9; Psalm 77:16-20; 1 Corinthians 1:14-17; 10:1-4; 12:13)
