Clinging to the greater Joshua in baptism…

Peter Leithart observes brilliantly that the blind man in John 9 passes through the waters and gets attached to Jesus, Joshua.  In contrast, he writes:

His parents are afraid of being kicked out of the old world, the world on the other side of the water of exodus… the parents are like the generation that came out of Egypt but fell in the wilderness.  They want to stay with the old Moses, rather than clinging to the new; they want to return to Egypt, the synagogue of Satan.
