Observations re verses on baptism:

 

JohnŐs baptism                                              JesusŐ baptism

With water (much water Jn 3:23)              with fire

Unto repentance                                          with the Holy Ghost

For remission of sins

Looking toward belief on Jesus Christ, Acts 19:4

 

Baptism pictures burial and resurrection – Rom 6:3-4, Col 2:12

(i.e., immersion – Acts 8:38)

 

It is associated with washing/cleansing – Acts 22:16

 

Baptism requires a Ňgood conscience toward GodÓ – 1 Peter 3:21

 

There is one acceptable baptism, one acceptable faith, and one Lord/God and Father of all.  Eph 4:5-6

 

It is associated with confessing sin – Matt 3:6, Mark 1:5

 

Jesus set the example – Matt 3:13, Mark 1:9, Luke 3:21

 

John recognized that JesusŐ had the greater baptism—Matt 3:11, 14, Luke 3:16

 

Baptism is connected with belief (faith) – Mark 16:16, Acts 8:12-13, 18:8

 

It is associated with being delivered from the wrath to come – Luke 3:7, Matt 3:7

 

The disciples/earthly representatives of Jesus performed the physical baptisms—not Jesus – John 4:2

 

It requires repentance – Acts 2:38

 

It is associated with those who Ňgladly receive His wordÓ – Acts 2:41

 

It should only be done in the name of Jesus – Acts 2:38, 8:16, 10:48, 19:5

 

It makes us part of one body – 1 Cor 12:13

 

In effect, it is clothing oneself with Christ – Gal 3:27

 

It is a command of Jesus; an act of obedience – Matt 28:19

 

It is associated with JesusŐ suffering – Matt 20:22-23, Mark 10:38-39, Luke 12:50

 

It is a foundational (milk of the word) doctrine – Heb 6:1-2

 

1 Cor 10:1-5 – Baptism unto Moses suggests unity of faith in action resulting in deliverance.  The problem with the example given is that the faith of the people was in the man Moses and not in God.

 

What did it mean to Ňjustify GodÓ in Luke 7:29?

It is to recognize that God is the one with the authority to decide what is appropriate/correct.  Those who were obedient to JohnŐs baptism were recognizing their need to repent as a prerequisite to acceptance of the Messiah

 

 

I have no clue what the verses regarding Ňbaptism for the deadÓ mean in

1 Cor 15:28-29.  (1/09) New understanding from my study in 1Corinthians:

ItŐs obvious that Paul is making reference to people who are living being baptized on behalf of loved ones who have died.  In context, the subject has been the resurrection of Christ and in turn of believers who die.  I think it is significant to note that in no other scripture is this taught to be an appropriate practice.  I decided to look at a few commentaries, and I believe David Guzik made some good observations.

ŇThe plain meaning of the original language is that some people are being baptized on behalf of those who have died. Paul's point is "If there is no resurrection, why are they doing this? What is the point if there is no life after death?"

 

Significantly, Paul does not say, "we baptize for the dead," but asks what will they do who are baptized for the dead, and Why then are they baptized for the dead? Therefore, Paul is referring to a pagan custom of vicarious baptism for the dead. "Paul simply mentions the superstitious custom without approving it and uses it to fortify his argument that there is a resurrection from the dead." (Mare)

 

Paul's point is plain: "The pagans even believe in the resurrection because they baptize for the dead. The pagans have the sense to believe in resurrection, but some of you Corinthian Christians do not!

 

 

Notes on Baptism

Pastor Bob

11/6/02

 

Re baptism--

There is a difference in being filled with and being filled and surrounded by or submerged in.

 

Sacraments are actions done in obedience to proper authority.

Protestants – 2 sacraments – baptism & the LordŐs Supper

Catholics – 7 sacraments

 

Catholics consider baptism a sacrament of rebirth and necessary for infants to erase Ňoriginal sinÓ

 

Reformed denominations (Presbyterians, Lutherans, etc.) baptize infants to seal their salvation before they realize they are sinners.

 

Calvary, Baptists, (+?) believe that you canŐt rely on connections in the family or church, and that repentance is necessary for proper baptism.  Reference the following verses:

 

Luke 3:7 Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

Luke 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

 

1Pet. 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

1Pet. 3:19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

1Pet. 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

1Pet. 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

 

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.
