Baptism - The Jewish Background of Christian Baptism (Mikveh)
An article by Ron Moseley, Ph. D., provided by the Arkansas Institute of Holy Land Studies. This is a study of the Jewish background of Christian baptism. The child of God will appreciate even more the beauty of the cleansing by water and blood that is baptism. NOTE: It is regrettable that Dr. Mosely's "Summary" states that "the convert could repent and have a part in the life to come without it (baptism)." It is difficult to believe that such a conclusion could be reached after this kind of in-depth study of baptism. Of course, you will have your Bible open as you read this article. See especially John 3:1-21.

The Church cannot hope to grow stronger if we are ignorant of these basic facts." Bill Cantrell's objective in this endeavor has been the glorification of God and the edification of man. These lessons are invaluable for those who are already members of the Lord's body--the church--and for those who have not yet been added to the church by the Lord.
