1 1 Peter 3:18-22

2 Entering a story bigger than yourself

3 The NT knows nothing of an unbaptized Christian

4 Noah rather than the Exodus

5 What do we know about Noah?

6 Parallels between Noah and the readers of 1 Peter

7 1. Noah was a minority

8 2. Noah was surrounded by unbelief

9 3. Noah witnessed boldly

10 4. Noah promised that judgment was coming soon

11 5. Christ preached through Noah

12 7. A few were saved

13 Water=chaos

14 Gen. 1:2, Ps. 18:4, Ps. 69:1-2, Ps. 88:7, Ps. 144:7

15 In the Noah story, the water separated the wicked from the saved

16 When the waters subsided, Noah and his family entered a new world

17 Romans 6:3-5

18 A person is baptized into death

19 And raised with Christ

20 A pledge or an appeal

21 For God to cleanse the deepest inner-most part because of the work of Jesus

22 Not magic

23 Resurrection is not something you can do, neither is baptism

24 Flee to the ark (Jesus), pass through the waters (baptism), set our lives on the rock (the Cross and the Empty Tomb) rise to a new world (discipleship to the Risen Lord)

25 Not just about you.

26 That’s good news.

27 5 threads

28 1. Participation in Jesus (Identity)

29 2 Cor. 5:16-21

30 Becoming Weak

31 Eph. 2:1-10, Col. 2:8-15

32 2. Washing of Sin (Hope)

33 Repent

34 “Your baptism is nothing less than grace clutching you by the throat: a grace-full throttling, by which your sin in submerged in order that you may remain under grace. Come thus to your baptism. Give yourself up to be drowned in baptism and killed by the mercy of God, saying, ‘Drown me and throttle me, dear Lord, for henceforth I will gladly die to sin with your Son.”—Martin Luther

35 Acts 2:38, 1 Cor. 6:11

36 3. Gifts of the Spirit (Ministry)

37 NT emphasizes a connection here

38 Engulfed in the Spirit

39 Surrender to God like Jesus

40 Eph. 1:13-14 & 4:5, 1 Cor. 12:13

41 The purpose of gifts

42 4. Becoming part of the people of God (Community)

43 Union with Christ and His people

44 Born into a new family

45 5. Initiation into God’s kingdom (Ethics)


47 A Pledge of Allegiance

48 “Baptism was and is nothing less than a declaration of allegiance to God’s transcendent kingdom and a rejection of this present age.”

49 The Anabaptists


51 Gal. 3:27-28
