1 The Sacrament of Baptism:

2 History:  Isaiah 40:3  A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.”  Mt 3:3, Mk 1:3, Lk 3:4, Jn 1:23  Mt 3:11  I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I… he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.  Repent then vs. after the great commission

3 REPENT:  Repentance that is mentioned in Mt 3:11 implies that of an internal change of heart. A personal conversion. There was no (grace) associated with it.  Grace- supernatural gift of God  Repentance was a conversion- to make oneself better. Changing their life around.  The baptisms that John the Baptist performed were not a cleansing of sin, but cleansing of the soul.

4 The Baptism of Jesus:  Mt 3:13  Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River by?  John  John tells Jesus “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”  Jesus was without sin, so why did he go to John to be baptized?  He wished to be baptized by John as this was the final preparation for his mission as Messiah.
