Baptism and Conscience 1 Peter 3:21
BAPTISM AND CONSCIENCE New Testament Baptism Is An Antitype
A type is an imprint, pattern or shadow cast. The antitype is the real thing, the reality, the full embodiment.
Typology type antitype tupos antitupos
Heb 8:5 - Make the Tabernacle “according to the pattern (tupos) that was showed thee in the mount.” The Pattern was not the real Tabernacle.
Rom. 5:14, Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the likeness of Adam's transgression, who is a figure (tupos) of Him that was to come. “Him that was to come” is the anti-type to Adam’s type. Jesus is the Real Thing.
type antitype shadow reality
1 Pet. 3:20, … 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… (NKJV) What is the Type? Is it the Ark? Not the ark
TypeAntitype Noah and his family “saved by means of water” in the the flood. We “in like figure” (anti- type) are saved by means of baptism. The type and the antitype both worked well!
Baptism Doth Now Save You
1 Pet. 3:21, Baptism Now Saves You 1:3, Blessed be … God... who according to His great mercy begat us again... 1:18, …Ye were redeemed, not with corruptible things... but with precious blood... even the blood of Christ. 1:22, …Ye have purified your souls in your obedience to the Truth… 2:25, For ye were going astray like sheep; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.
BAPTISM AND CONSCIENCE What One Seeks to Accomplish In Baptism Simply the outward cleansing of the body? No. “The answer of a good conscience toward God” Mk. 16:15,16; Acts 2:37,38,41
1 Pet. 3:21: (KJV) but the answer of a good conscience toward God (NKJV) but the answer of a good conscience toward God (ASV) but the interrogation of a good conscience toward God (NASB) but an appeal to God for a good conscience (RSV) as an appeal to God for a clear conscience (NRSV) but as an appeal to God for a good conscience "request, appeal … an appeal to God for a clear conscience" (Arndt & Gingrich, 285) Acts 22:16 “Wash away sins, calling on God’s name.” Acts 8:35-39 “See here is water, what hinders me...?” Rom. 6:17,18 “obeyed from the heart” and were set free
1 Peter 3:21 and the Brethren to whom Peter Wrote --- Was he writing to a few or many?

Baptism Puts One into the Church 1 Pet. 4:17 “For the time is come for judgment to begin at the house of God: and if it begin first at us, what shall be the end of them that obey not the gospel of God?” The House of God; “us.” 1 Tim. 3:15; Gal. 1:2; 3:26,27; 1 Pet. 1:22; Eph. 5:23; 1:22,23 Them that Obey Not the Gospel
“An appeal to God for a good conscience" Baptism and conscience, 1 Peter 3:21: 1.The water saves, just as it saved Noah. 2.Baptism saves now. It is God’s will today. 3.The thing accomplished -- an appeal to God for a clean conscience. 4.It universally applies to all persons that Peter wrote to: Asia, Galatia. In sync with Matthew 28:19. Mk 16:15,16 “all the world” 5. Puts you into the Lord’s Church and Kingdom.
