Why Paul Baptized People with Water - Part 1

The Baptisms of Scripture

There is no question that during his Acts period ministry Paul baptized both Jewish and Gentile believers with water. The question is, "Why?" We look at Paul's statements that God did not send him to baptize, but to preach the gospel. We also look at the fact that the Acts period, especially after Acts 7, was a transitional period, moving from God's offering of the kingdom to Israel to God's building of a new body of believers, the Church. This helps explain why Paul continued the practice of water baptism among the Jews, just as he also continued to observe the law: circumcision, miraculous healing, keeping Jewish Sabbaths and feast days, taking Jewish vows, and even worshiping in the Jewish temple in Jerusalem.

Scripture References: Acts 16:23-34, Acts 16:11-15, 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, 1 Corinthians 1:12-17, Acts 19:1-6

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.
