In which work of ancient literature do we first find this expression: "...kick against the goads"?

If you said Jesus on the Damascus Road, you would be wrong.

This expression was first used in a book of Greek mythology, "The Bacchae", written by Euripides in circa 450 BC. The expression occurred in a fictional conversation between the god/man, Dionysus, and the king of Thebes, his persecutor.

Isn't it odd that Jesus would borrow an expression from Greek mythology in his appearance to the self-proclaimed "Thirteenth Apostle"?
