John’s water baptism has been almost universally accepted as applying to the worldwide Church, however the details of its application also generate as much controversy within the Church as almost any doctrine. This controversy makes it even more ironic that so many questions about John’s water baptism have been left unasked and unanswered.
+ Was John the Baptist’s water baptism under the jurisdiction of the Old Covenant or the New Covenant?
+ What differentiates John the Baptist’s water baptism from other purification rituals of the Old Covenant?
+ Is it reasonable to believe that John and his disciples immersed hundreds of thousands of people one at a time?
+ Is it reasonable to believe that the Jews dragged their furniture down to the river to immerse it before each meal?
+ Wasn’t John’s water baptism described as a type of temporary repentance?
+ Wasn’t John’s water baptism described specifically as a preparing of the way of the Lord so that the Jews could recognize the Christ?
+ Why would the Church place water baptism after salvation when John provided water baptism before salvation?
+ Why does the Church view water baptism as a permanent cleansing when John’s water baptism was described as a temporary purification?
+ Why did John lose his ability to recognize the Christ?
+ Why did Christ not order any that He ministered to be water baptized?
These are just a sample of the the questions answered in regard to John’s water baptism in MetaChristianity IX Unlocking Baptism Bible Mysteries.
“Where most Christians today pull verses from Scripture willy nilly and apply them to themselves, the church or other people, your site is very refreshing! I find it’s in the spirit of the Bereans who continuously sought out truth for themselves by the Spirit of Christ. I liked what you did with all of your questions; you asked God Himself!” Rob Van Weerden (Old Comments 2003)
Note: Because of doctrinal overlap it is advisable to read the book series in the numbered order.
