Lesson 11
A symbol of baptism. 1 Corinthians 10:1-4
A symbol of redemption. John 1:36
A symbol of rest:
Entering rest. Hebrews 3:7-4:3
Not entering rest. Hebrews 4:3-7
Future rest. Hebrews 4:8-11
The authors of the New Testament presented Old Testament stories as
symbols of spiritual truths.
Paul presented the crossing of the Red Sea as a symbol of baptism.
John the Baptist presented the animal sacrifices at the Temple as a
symbol of Jesus redeeming us. In the book of Hebrews, the Sabbath in
Creation and the conquest of Canaan are presented as symbols of the
rest that God gives to His people.
“all were baptized into Moses in the cloud
and in the sea.” (1 Corinthians 10:2)
A symbol is an example that helps us to
understand another thing or idea. There
are many symbols in the account of
Israel’s exodus. These symbols help us to
understand spiritual truths.
For example, Paul said that the Sanctuary
“was symbolic for the present time.”
(Hebrews 9:9)
THE SYMBOL
At the Red Sea, the
people of Israel were
leaving Egypt’s
slavery and entering
a new life of freedom
under the cloud
God fed them with
manna
They drank water that
flowed from a rock
REALITY
Our baptism marks
the end of sin’s
slavery in our lives,
and the beginning
of a new life in
Christ (Ro. 6:4, 11)
Jesus is the “bread
of life” (Jn. 6:48)
Jesus is the “living
water” (Jn. 4:10)
“And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, ‘Behold the Lamb of God!’” (Juan 1:36)
What can we learn from
the sacrifices depicted in
Leviticus 4:32-35 which
are a symbol of Jesus?
Remember that blood is a
symbol of life
(see Lv. 17:11).
THE SYMBOL
The offender placed their
hands on the lamb
They slaughtered the animal
The priest put some blood on
the horns of the altar and
spilled the rest
The fat was burned on the
altar
The priest made atonement
for the sin
REALITY
We confess our sins to Jesus
We acknowledge that Jesus
died for our sins
The blood that Jesus spilled
on the cross can redeems us
We surrender our lives to
Jesus
Jesus makes atonement for
our sins
ENTERING REST
In Hebrews 3 and 4, Paul used symbols
from the Old Testament to address the
topic of rest.
God promised Israel that they will find rest
once they possessed Canaan. However,
only those who believed and persevered
could enter that rest (Heb. 4:2).
We must fully trust and believe Christ’s promises to
enter His rest. Perseverance is key to be in communion
with Him every day.
Where can we find these promises? How can we believe
in them? How can we persevere? By reading the Word
with faith (Heb. 4:2, 12).
“So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’” (Psalm 95:11)
Paul’s reasoning in Heb. 4:3-7 may seem confusing at first. How is
God’s oath related to the Sabbath and Creation?
We are talking about symbols. Paul presented the disobedience of
the Israelites–which prevented them from entering Canaan–as a
symbol of their rejection of Jesus as a nation. Since the beginning of
Creation, God decided to give rest to all His children, but not all of
them got it.
God promises rest for the soul. We get it when we
fully surrender to Christ. Then our lives are
gradually linked to God’s eternal purpose
(Is. 30:15; Jer. 6:16; Mt. 11:29).
We can still enter this rest, but it’s urgent that we
make a decision. The right moment to enter His
rest is TODAY (v. 6-7).
Read Hebrews 4:8. Didn’t Joshua lead the people of Israel to
rest when they entered Canaan? Wasn’t that the rest
mentioned in Psalm 95 which Paul is quoting? What is Paul
talking about?
Let’s go back to the symbols. There is a future rest linked to
the Heavenly Canaan and to the Sabbath (v. 10-11).
This rest reflects God’s rest in the first Sabbath ever. It means that
we can rest from our work and trust in His salvation.
“The very best preparation you can have for Christ’s second
appearing [and therefore entering the Heavenly Canaan] is to rest
with firm faith in the great salvation brought to us at His first
coming. You must believe in Christ as a personal Saviour.”
(E.G.W., “Our High Calling”, December 28)
“We shall be saved eternally when we enter in through
the gates into the city. Then we may rejoice that we are
saved, eternally saved. But until then we need to heed
the injunction of the apostle [Hebrews 4:1 is quoted].
Having a knowledge of Canaan, singing the songs of
Canaan, rejoicing in the prospect of entering into
Canaan, did not bring the children of Israel into the
vineyards and olive groves of the Promised Land. They
could make it theirs in truth only by occupation, by
complying with the conditions, by exercising living faith
in God, by appropriating His promises to themselves.”
E. G. W. (That I May Know Him, June 5)

  • 4. “all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea.” (1 Corinthians 10:2) A symbol is an example that helps us to understand another thing or idea. There are many symbols in the account of Israel’s exodus. These symbols help us to understand spiritual truths. For example, Paul said that the Sanctuary “was symbolic for the present time.” (Hebrews 9:9) THE SYMBOL At the Red Sea, the people of Israel were leaving Egypt’s slavery and entering a new life of freedom under the cloud God fed them with manna They drank water that flowed from a rock REALITY Our baptism marks the end of sin’s slavery in our lives, and the beginning of a new life in Christ (Ro. 6:4, 11) Jesus is the “bread of life” (Jn. 6:48) Jesus is the “living water” (Jn. 4:10)
  • 5. “And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, ‘Behold the Lamb of God!’” (Juan 1:36) What can we learn from the sacrifices depicted in Leviticus 4:32-35 which are a symbol of Jesus? Remember that blood is a symbol of life (see Lv. 17:11). THE SYMBOL The offender placed their hands on the lamb They slaughtered the animal The priest put some blood on the horns of the altar and spilled the rest The fat was burned on the altar The priest made atonement for the sin REALITY We confess our sins to Jesus We acknowledge that Jesus died for our sins The blood that Jesus spilled on the cross can redeems us We surrender our lives to Jesus Jesus makes atonement for our sins
  • 6. ENTERING REST In Hebrews 3 and 4, Paul used symbols from the Old Testament to address the topic of rest. God promised Israel that they will find rest once they possessed Canaan. However, only those who believed and persevered could enter that rest (Heb. 4:2). We must fully trust and believe Christ’s promises to enter His rest. Perseverance is key to be in communion with Him every day. Where can we find these promises? How can we believe in them? How can we persevere? By reading the Word with faith (Heb. 4:2, 12).
  • 7. “So I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest.’” (Psalm 95:11) Paul’s reasoning in Heb. 4:3-7 may seem confusing at first. How is God’s oath related to the Sabbath and Creation? We are talking about symbols. Paul presented the disobedience of the Israelites–which prevented them from entering Canaan–as a symbol of their rejection of Jesus as a nation. Since the beginning of Creation, God decided to give rest to all His children, but not all of them got it. God promises rest for the soul. We get it when we fully surrender to Christ. Then our lives are gradually linked to God’s eternal purpose (Is. 30:15; Jer. 6:16; Mt. 11:29). We can still enter this rest, but it’s urgent that we make a decision. The right moment to enter His rest is TODAY (v. 6-7).
  • 8. Read Hebrews 4:8. Didn’t Joshua lead the people of Israel to rest when they entered Canaan? Wasn’t that the rest mentioned in Psalm 95 which Paul is quoting? What is Paul talking about? Let’s go back to the symbols. There is a future rest linked to the Heavenly Canaan and to the Sabbath (v. 10-11). This rest reflects God’s rest in the first Sabbath ever. It means that we can rest from our work and trust in His salvation. “The very best preparation you can have for Christ’s second appearing [and therefore entering the Heavenly Canaan] is to rest with firm faith in the great salvation brought to us at His first coming. You must believe in Christ as a personal Saviour.” (E.G.W., “Our High Calling”, December 28)
  • 9. “We shall be saved eternally when we enter in through the gates into the city. Then we may rejoice that we are saved, eternally saved. But until then we need to heed the injunction of the apostle [Hebrews 4:1 is quoted]. Having a knowledge of Canaan, singing the songs of Canaan, rejoicing in the prospect of entering into Canaan, did not bring the children of Israel into the vineyards and olive groves of the Promised Land. They could make it theirs in truth only by occupation, by complying with the conditions, by exercising living faith in God, by appropriating His promises to themselves.” E. G. W. (That I May Know Him, June 5)
