Going On To Perfection: Lesson Four

BAPTISM OF WATER PART THREE 

A 50 minute summation of the doctrines of immersion, mikvah, baptism, and ritual sprinkling. Some of the topics discussed on this subject are: The New Testament opens with John the Baptist immersing people in the Jordan River at the place of the crossing where Israel had entered the Promised Land. Not one time does anyone ask John what this ritual of baptism was (Why not?). Moses 1500 years earlier had the people immerse to prepare to meet GOD. This lesson opens our understanding of the similar task of John preparing people to meet the LORD. Is getting wet enough to validate a baptism? How are the grave, the womb, and an immersion pool (mikvah) considered to have similar characteristics?
