Today we'll be looking at several passages to help us formulate a biblical perspective on Jesus' institution of baptism.What is baptism?Why is baptism?When should someone be baptized?Can anyone be baptized or is it only for the "super-disciples"?What about you? Have you been baptized? Why? When? Does it matter?Join us today as we look–not to your ideas or mine, but–to the Scripture, God's Holy Word, discovering the Truth on Baptism.Today's passage:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,11 In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the powerful working of God, who raised him from the dead. 13 And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, 14 by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross. 15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. -Matthew 28.19, Colossians 2.11-15, Romans 6.3-4 (esv)
