Christianity youniversity christyou.org A Message For All Nations Water Baptism Scriptural and Historical References Baptism: An Essential Component of the Gospel Death, Burial, Resurrection of Jesus 1Corinthians 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 15:4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: tabernacle_drawing.jpg The brazen altar The brazen laver The Holy Place & The Most Holy Place Brazen Altar Brazen Laver The Holy Place The Most Holy Place Death, Burial & Resurrection tabernacle_drawing.jpg Between the Brazen Altar and the Holy Place was the Brazen Laver. It was used for washing.. This was for cleansing or purification Brazen Laver tabernacle8.jpg Exo 30:20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD: No other provision to be buried with him other than water baptism! Rom 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Rom 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Circumcision: Type & Shadow of Water Baptism As circumcision was the essential token of the covenant between God and Abraham (Genesis 17) baptism is clearly the New Testament type and shadow of Old Testament circumcision: Col 2:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 2:12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with Brit Milah In the ancient Jewish ‘Brit Milah’ or Covenant of Circumcision dating back to the time of Abraham, the male baby is given his Hebrew name, usually the name of an honored relative and the surname of his father. At water baptism, we take on our father’s name - the name of Jesus! Luke 1:5-64 The significance of naming the child at the time of circumcision As we become sons of God (John 1:12) there is no other provision in scripture for taking on the NAME of JESUS except through water baptism the New Testament equivalent to Old The Naming of John the Baptist Luke 1:59 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father. 1:60 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John. 1:61 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name. 1:62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. 1:63 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all. Calling Upon The Name of the Lord Psa 116:12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me? Psa 116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. Call Upon The Name of the Lord qârâ’ Hebrew - A pual verb form A pual verb form takes the verb and intensifies it and shifts it’s focus to the subject. Instead of the verb describing something the subject is doing, the verb describes something that IS BEING DONE TO THE SUBJECT. It literally means to be called, be named, be called out, be chosen as in ‘I will be called; I will be named; I will be chosen! ἐπικαλέω epikaleō Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. epikaleō To be surnamed - to call upon the name of as in to put a name upon, to surname to permit one's self to be surnamed to be named after someone Being Surnamed 1Corinthians 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Act 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Calling Upon The Name of The Lord epikaleō to call upon the name of as in to put a name upon, to surname to permit one's self to be surnamed to be named after someone epikaleō = To Be Surnamed! We are surnamed after our Father, Jesus, taking on His name at baptism!!! Sphragis & Onomazo 2 Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. Σφραγίς sphragis sfrä-gē's d) that by which anything is confirmed, proved, authenticated, as by a seal (a token or proof) ὀνομάζω onomazō Give name to or to be named; To bear the name of a person or thing Hebrew Tradition: Three Names The Name Given By Parents The Name Given By Friends The Name of What A Person Becomes A New Name….. Rev 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth [it]. The Importance of the Name of Jesus Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you This was a command by Jesus to baptize in a NAME. The apostles did not repeat the command, but they did obey it as we will soon see in the scripture. Since Father, Son and Holy Ghost are titles of the manifestations of the Almighty Spirit and His body, the apostles understood His SAVING NAME to be Jesus. Can anyone dare say that the apostles disobeyed the Lord or failed to baptize properly? The NAME OF THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY GHOST IS LORD JESUS CHRIST. The actions of the apostles in the Book of Acts prove this to be true. In Jesus Name Titles Father, Son and Holy Ghost Jews Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ Acts 2:38 Samaritans They were baptized in the name of the Lord the Lord Jesus Acts 10:48 -0- In Jesus Name Titles Father, Son and Holy Ghost The Ephesians ‘Certain disciples’ were rebaptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Acts 19:1-6 Peter Taught There is none other name under heaven whereby we must be saved Acts 4:12 Paul Taught Whatsoever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus Col 3:17 -0- Britannica Encyclopedia 11th edition, Volume 3 page 365 Baptism was changed from the name of Jesus to words Father, Son & Holy Ghost in the 2nd century Canny Encyclopedia Page 53- the early church baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus until the second century Hastings Encyclopedia of Religion Volume 2– Christian baptism was administered using the words, ‘in the name of Jesus’ (page 377) Baptism was always in the name of Jesus until the time of Justin Martyr (page 389) Catholic Encyclopedia Volume 2 page 263 here, authors acknowledged that the baptismal formula was changed by the leaders of the Roman Catholics. Schaff Herzog Religious Encyclopedia Volume 1 page 435 ‘The New Testament knows only the baptism in the name of Jesus.’ Hastings Dictionary of the Bible Page 88 it must be acknowledged that the three fold name of Matthew 28:19 does not appear to have been used by the primitive church, but rather in the name of Jesus, Jesus Christ, or Lord Jesus. ‘I’d Rather Stick with the Words of Jesus’ Jesus never wrote a word. All scripture we have was written by those who heard him. The words of Jesus and the words of his apostles do not contradict one another! Heb 2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. Heb 2:2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward; Heb 2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him Immersion or Sprinkling? Immersion Sprinkling MUCH WATER John was baptizing at Aenon because there was much water there John 3:23 INTO THE WATER They both went down into the water Acts 8:38 OUT OF THE WATER They came up out of the water Acts 8:39 BURIED IN WATER We are buried with him in baptism Romans 6:4 PLANTED IN WATER We have been planted together Romans 6:5 -0- Without question the early church taught and practiced baptism by immersion. Baptism taken from Greek word ‘Baptizo’; to dip, immerse. Greek-English Lexicon by Liddel, Scott & Thayer Greek word baptizo means to dip under Classic Greek-English Dictionary by Pollet Greek word baptizo means to immerse Greek-English Dictionary by Divry’s In every instance the Greek word baptizo is translated ‘immerse’. Emphatic Diaglott contains original Greek Text SCHAFF-HERZOG RELIGIOUS ENCYCLOPEDEDIA Baptism was always a burial. The command to baptize was a command to immerse. [Vol. 1 pg 451] CATHOLIC BIBLICAL ENCYCLOPEDEIA Immersion was the oldest method employed. Buried in baptism Romans 6:4. [Pg. 61 Paragraph 2] ENCYCLOPEDEIA DICTIONARY OF THE BIBLE It is evident that the action performed in baptizing was immersion. [Page 202] WORLD BOOK ENCYCLOPEDEIA The early church practiced immersion or submerging under water. [Volume 2, page 70] ENCYCLOPEDIA OF LUTHERAN CHURCH Martin Luther preferred immersion as more true to original practice. [Volume 1 page 188] PULPIT COMMENTARY Romans 6:4, “buried in baptism.” the reference is to baptism by immersion. [Volume 18 Page 156] ‘Baptizo’ or ‘Rantizo’? An important factor is overlooked by the exponents of sprinkling. The original New Testament text and the spoken language of that day was Greek. The authors of the New Testament knew the Greek word ‘baptizo’ meant to immerse. They also knew the Greek word ‘rantizo’ meant to sprinkle. These often used words were never interchangeable, having separate meanings. If God had intended for His ministers to sprinkle, the Greek word ‘rantizo’ would have been employed, not ‘baptizo’. As with sprinkling, the doctrine and practice of infant baptism cannot be found in the New Testament. And as with sprinkling, again, logic cried out against it. The very mode of immersion makes it illogical and impractical. The teaching of baptism automatically prohibits it. Teaching or preaching must precede baptism Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them…’ Believing must precede baptism: Acts 8:36-37And as they went on doth hinder me to be baptized? Act 8:37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. Repentance must precede baptism Luke 24:47 ‘Repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations beginning in Jerusalem’ Acts 2:38 ‘Repent CHAMBERS ENCYCLOPEDEIA VOLUME 2 PAGE 112 That the first recipients of baptism were adults. Infant baptism was a later development that led to sprinkling. INTERPRETERS BIBLE DICTIONARY VOLUME 1 PAGE 352 There is no direct evidence in the New Testament for infant baptism. ENCYCLOPEDEIA BRITANNICA VOLUME 3 PAGE 138 The earliest Christian literature makes no reference to baptism of infants. HISTORY OF CHURCH BY WALKER PAGE 87, 88 The first mention of infant baptism was about 185AD. It was not universal until the 6th century. TIME MAGAZINE PG 58- MAY, 1968 That 350 Lutheran pastors of W. Germany wish to abandon infant baptism. Many of these same pastors refused to baptize their own infants. They felt that baptism should be understood first by the recipient. TIME MAGAZINE PG 58- MAY 1968 Karl Barth of Switzerland, the best known theologian of the 20th century said, ‘There is not biblical basis for infant baptism- this tradition is simply an old error of [Roman Catholicism]’. Dedicating Babies A child should be old enough (age of accountability) to receive teaching, believe, and repent of sin before being baptized. Dedicating children to God and asking Him to bless them is biblical and not to be confused with baptism. Jesus dedicated and blessed children in Luke 18:15-17 and Matt. 19:13, 15 John 3:5 Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. Mark 16:16 he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. Notice how Jesus places baptism in conjunction with salvation 1 Peter 3:21 The like figure where unto baptism doth also now save us. Does ‘Water’ mean…. Water? John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Most bible commentaries agree that water here is referring to baptism. See Matthew Henry, Adam Clark, History of Christian Church by Walker, Catholic Encyclopedia, Oxford Dictionary of Church, Interpreters Dictionary of the Bible, Temples Bible Dictionary. John 3:23 John was baptizing at Aenon because there was much water there Acts 8:38 They both went down into the water Acts 8:39 They came up out of the water Acts 10:47 Can any man forbid water that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? Naaman , Captain of the host of Syria 2Ki 5:10 And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean. 2Ki 5:11 But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, the LORD his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper. 2Ki 5:12 [Are] not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I Baptism for the Remission of Sins Baptism is Essential in Remitting Sin Hebrews 9:22 The application of the blood of Christ is necessary to remit sin. Baptism is an essential component in remitting sins: Luke 24:47 Repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name…. (Jesus) Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost Act 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Every New Testament church was formed by those whom were baptized into the faith after believing and repenting! The Church in Jerusalem 3000 added by baptism after receiving the word (Acts 2:41) The Church in Samaria Men and women believe and were baptized (Acts 8:12-16) The Church in Caesarea Peter commanded them to be baptized (Acts 10:48) The church in Philippi Lydia & the Philippian jailer were baptized (Acts 16:14-33) The Church in Corinth Paul preached; they believed and were baptized (Acts 18:8) The Church in Ephesus Paul rebaptized ‘certain disciples’ who were improperly baptized! (Acts 19: 1-6) The Church in Galatia They believed the preaching of the Apostle Paul and were baptized into Christ (Galatians 3:27) The Church in Colosse They were buried in Christ in baptism (Col. 2:12) The Church in Rome They died to sin, then were buried in baptism (Romans 6:1-4) Baptism is clearly a foundational doctrine in scripture No other provision for being buried with Jesus (being identified with Him in his burial) No other provision for taking on the Name of Jesus There is no way to facilitate these two essentials except in the name of Jesus. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. The Great Commission The Last Message preached by Jesus was a command to baptize all nations. (Matt 28:19, Luke 24:47) The First Message preached by the apostles resulted in a command for everyone to be baptized! (Acts 2:38) No Other Name Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. 2Timothy 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, σφραγίς sphragis that by which anything is confirmed, proved, authenticated, as by a seal (a token or proof) The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. ὀνομάζω onomazō To bear the name of a person or thing Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
