Matthew 3:13-17 13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. 14 But John tried to deter him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?" Matthew 3:13-17 13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. 14 But John tried to deter him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?"
Lesson 5: Water Baptism 15 Jesus replied, "Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness." Then John consented. 16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased."
The baptism of Jesus indicates that He was CONSECRATED to God and officially APPROVED by Him, as especially shown in the DESCENT of the Holy Spirit and the words of the Father. Lesson 5: Water Baptism
Genesis 17:12-13, For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised, including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner--those who are not your offspring. 13 Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised. My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant.
Colossians 2:11-12, “ In him you were also circumcised, in the putting off of the sinful nature, not with a circumcision done by the hands of men but with the circumcision done by Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism and raised with him through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead.” Lesson 5: Water Baptism
Romans 2:28-29, “ A man is not a Jew if he is only one outwardly, nor is circumcision merely outward and physical. 29 No, a man is a Jew if he is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man's praise is not from men, but from God.” Lesson 5: Water Baptism
Genesis 17:12-13 Colossians 2:11-12 Romans 2:28-29 Water Baptism Circumcision- the cutting off of the foreskin of the males’ sex organ
Circumcision Water baptism It signified the responsibility to faithfully serve God as a holy people in the midst of a pagan world. It is the CIRCUMCISION of the heart, a cutting away of SIN and a change of HEART. What is buried by faith in baptism is dead and POWERLESS to control our lives any longer.
