The Baptism of John - Part 2

The Baptisms of Scripture

We continue studying the baptism of John, a prophet sent by God as a forerunner to go before the face of the Lord and prepare His way. John called on Israel to repent (change their minds) for the kingdom of heaven had drawn near. The people came confessing (acknowledging) their sins and turning their hearts back to God. Those who did received remission (forgiveness) of their sins and were baptized by John as sign of their cleansing. They were also baptized to consecrate them for their role in the kingdom as priests of God (Exo. 19:6).

Scripture References: Matthew 3:1-6, Luke 3:1-6

From Series: "The Baptisms of Scripture"

This series of Bible studies examines the many different baptisms found in the Scriptures, looking at the practice and meaning of each. Much focus will be placed on the one baptism that is still in operation today in this present dispensation of God's grace: the baptism by the Holy Spirit that places believers into Christ. These lessons were given during the adult Sunday school class at Grace Bible Church in 2021.
