Hopefully, this is only a joke. Even so, it’s ridiculously poor taste. But the Dean of the School of Theology at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary has found a way to equate taking the COVID-19 vaccine with the salvation of Christ.

Of course, what he’s referring to in this tweet is Moses, who, in the wilderness, received a command from God to fashion a bronze serpent to heal people from the onslaught of bites from the venomous snakes that were sent by God as a punishment for their sins.

And the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent and set it on a pole, and everyone who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live.” So Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would look at the bronze serpent and live. — Numbers 21:8-9

The brass serpent was, as affirmed in by Jesus in John 3:14, was theological foreshadowing of Christ himself who would also be raised up and gazed upon for the forgiveness of sins.
