3 WHAT DID JOHN PREACH? MARK 1:4-5 4 John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.5 All the land of Judea, and those from Jerusalem, went out to him and were all baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins.(MATTHEW 3:3-6 LUKE 3:3)
4 WHAT DID JOHN SAY CHRIST WOULD DO? LUKE 3:15-1615 As the people were in expectation, and all reasoned in their hearts about John, whether he was the Christ or not,16 John said to them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. (MATTHEW 3:11 MARK 1:7-9)
5 WHY WAS JESUS BAPTIZED? MATTHEW 3:13-17 13 Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him.14 John tried to prevent Him, saying, I need to be baptized by You and are You coming to me?15 Jesus said to him, Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he allowed Him.16 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.17 Suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.(MARK 1:9-11 LUKE 3:21-22)
6 WHAT DID JOHN TESTIFY? JOHN 1:19-28 19 This is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who are you?20 He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, I am not the Christ.21 They asked him, What then? Are you Elijah? He said, I am not. Are you the Prophet? He answered, No.22 They said to him, Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?
7 WHO WAS JOHN? WHAT DID HE DO? 23 He said: I am The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the Lord, as the prophet Isaiah said.24 Those who were sent were from the Pharisees.25 They asked him, saying, Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?26 John answered, I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know.27 It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose.
8 WHAT DID JOHN SAY ABOUT JESUS? 29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!30 This is He of whom I said, After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.31 I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water.32 John bore witness, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him.
9 HOW DID HE IDENTIFY “THE SON OF GOD”? JOHN 1:29-3433 I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.34 I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.
10 WHY WAS JOHN WAS BAPTIZING IN AENON 22 After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea, and there Jesus remained with them and baptized.23 John was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there. And they came and were baptized.24 For John had not yet been thrown into prison.
11 WHAT DID JOHN SAY ABOUT JESUS BAPTIZING? 25 There arose a dispute between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purification.26 They came to John and said to him, Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have testified-- Behold, He is baptizing; all are coming to Him!27 John answered A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.28 You yourselves bear me witness that I said, I am not the Christ, but, I have been sent before Him.
12 WHAT DID JOHN SAY ABOUT THE BRIDEGROOM? 29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled.30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
13 DID JESUS BAPTIZE ANYONE? JOHN 4:1-31 When the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John2 Though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples3 He left Judea and departed again to Galilee.
14 WHAT DID JESUS SAY ABOUT JOHN? LUKE 7:26-3026 What did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet.27 This is he of whom it is written: Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will prepare Your way before You.28 I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist. BUT he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.
15 HOW DID THEY JUSTIFY GOD? LUKE 7:29-3029 When all the people heard Him, even the tax collectors justified God, having been baptized with the baptism of John.30 BUT the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the will of God for themselves, NOT having been baptized by him.
16 WAS THE BAPTISM OF JOHN FROM HEAVEN? MATTHEW 21:23-2723 When Jesus came into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people confronted Him as He was teaching, and said, By what authority are You doing these things? And who gave You this authority?24 Jesus said to them, I also will ask you one thing, which if you tell Me, I likewise will tell you by what authority I do these things:25 The baptism of John-- where was it from? From heaven or from men? They reasoned among themselves, saying, If we say, From heaven, He will say to us, Why then did you not believe him?26 If we say, From men, we fear the multitude, for all count John as a prophet.27 So they answered Jesus, We do not know. Jesus said to them, Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things. (MARK 11:27-33 LUKE 20:1-8)
17 WHAT DID JESUS TELL HIS DISCIPLES TO DO? MATTHEW 28:18-2018 Jesus said All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.
18 WHO WILL BE SAVED? HOW? MARK 16:15-16 15 Jesus said, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; BUT he who does not believe will be condemned.
19 WHO DID JESUS TELL TO WAIT IN JERUSALEM? ACTS 1:2-52 Until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen,3 To whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.4 Being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which," He said, "you have heard from Me;5 For John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.
20 WHAT DID PETER TELL THE JEWS TO DO? ACTS 2:36-3836 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.37 When they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?38 Peter said to them, Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
21 WHO WAS BAPTIZED? ACTS 2:39-41 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.40 With many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, Be saved from this perverse generation.41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.
22 WHO WAS BAPTIZED? ACTS 8:12-13 12 When they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized.13 Simon himself also believed; and when he was baptized he continued with Philip, and was amazed, seeing the miracles and signs which were done.
23 WHAT DID THEY NOT HAVE? ACTS 8:14-17 14 When the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them,15 Who, when they had come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit.16 For as yet He had fallen upon none of them. They had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.17 Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
24 WHAT DID PHILIP PREACH TO THE EUNUCH? ACTS 8:34-3734 The eunuch said to Philip, I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?35 Philip opened his mouth, beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.36 As they went down the road, they came to some water. The eunuch said, See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?37 Philip said, If you believe with all your heart, you may. He said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
25 WHO WAS BAPTIZED? ACTS 8:38-39 38 He commanded the chariot to stand still. Both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him.39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.
26 WHAT DID PETER PERCEIVE? ACTS 10:34-3734 Peter opened his mouth and said: In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality.35 But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.36 The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ-- He is Lord of all--37 That word you know, which was proclaimed throughout all Judea, and began from Galilee after the baptism which John preached:
27 WHAT DID PETER COMMAND THEM TO DO? ACTS 10:45-4845 Those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also.46 They heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter said,47 Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?48 He commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then they asked him to stay a few days.
28 WHAT DID PETER REMEMBER? ACTS 11:15-1715 As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, as upon us at the beginning.16 Then I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.17 If therefore God gave them the same gift as He gave us when we believed on the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could withstand God?
29 WHO WAS BAPTIZED AT PHILIPPI? ACTS 16:13-1513 On the Sabbath day we went out of the city to the riverside, where prayer was customarily made. We sat down and spoke to the women who met there.14 A certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a seller of purple from the city of Thyatira, who worshiped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul.15 When she and her household were baptized, she begged us, saying, If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay. So she persuaded us.
30 WHAT DID THE PHILIPPIAN JAILER ASK? ACTS 16:29-3229 He called for a light, ran in and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas.30 He brought them out and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?31 They said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.32 They spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.
31 HOW SOON WAS HE BAPTIZED? ACTS 16:29-3433 He took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. Immediately he and all his family were baptized.34 When he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.
32 WHO WAS BAPTIZED AT CORINTH? ACTS 18:5-85 When Silas and Timothy had come from Macedonia, Paul was compelled by the Spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus is the Christ.6 When they opposed him and blasphemed, he shook his garments and said to them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean. From now on I will go to the Gentiles.7 He departed from there and entered the house of a certain man named Justus, one who worshiped God, whose house was next door to the synagogue.8 Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his household. Many of the Corinthians, hearing, believed and were baptized.
33 WHAT WAS LACKING IN APOLLOS’ TEACHING? ACTS 18:24-2624 A certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man and mighty in the Scriptures, came to Ephesus.25 This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things of the Lord, though he knew only the baptism of John.26 He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. Aquila and Priscilla heard him, and took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.
34 WHAT DID HE DO AFTER THEY TAUGHT HIM? ACTS 18:27-2827 When he desired to cross to Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him; and when he arrived, he greatly helped those who had believed through grace;28 He vigorously refuted the Jews publicly, showing from the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ.
35 INTO WHAT WERE YOU BAPTIZED? ACTS 19:1-51 While Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples2 He said to them, Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed? They said to him, We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.3 He said to them, Into what then were you baptized? They said, Into John's baptism.4 Then Paul said, John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
36 WHAT DID ANANIAS TELL SAUL TO DO? ACTS 22:12-1612 Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good testimony with all the Jews who dwelt there,13 Came to me and he stood and said to me, Brother Saul, receive your sight. That same hour I looked at him.14 He said, The God of our fathers has chosen you that you should know His will, and see the Just One, and hear the voice of His mouth.15 For you will be His witness to all men of what you have seen and heard.16 Now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
37 HOW WERE WE BURIED WITH CHRIST? ROMANS 6:4-64 We were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.5 If we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection,6 Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
38 HOW WERE THEY BAPTIZED INTO MOSES? 1 CORINTHIANS 10:1-41 Brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea,2 All were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea,3 All ate the same spiritual food,4 And all drank the same spiritual drink; For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.
39 WHAT BODY WERE WE BAPTIZED INTO? 1 CORINTHIANS 12:12-1412 As the body is one and has many members. But all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.13 By one Spirit we were all baptized into one body-- whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free-- and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.14 For in fact the body is not one member but many.
40 HOW DID WE PUT ON CHRIST? GALATIANS 3:26-29 26 You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.27 As many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.29 And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
41 HOW MANY BAPTISMS ARE THERE? EPHESIANS 4:4-64 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling;5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism;6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
42 HOW IS ONE SANCTIFIED AND CLEANSED? EPHESIANS 5:25-2725 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,26 That He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,27 That He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
43 HOW WERE YOU BURIED WITH CHRIST? COLOSSIANS 2:11-1211 In Christ you were circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ,12 Buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead.
44 HOW WAS NOAH AND HIS FAMILY SAVED? 1 PETER 3:20-2120 They who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.21 There is also an antitype which now saves us-- baptism (NOT the removal of the filth of the flesh, BUT the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
