Baptism by blood, fire, and drowning exemplify some of the ways Old Testament baptism took place—a stark contrast to the New Testament’s baptism by water. Compiling the works of Jewish writers from both Testaments, including the Apocrypha, Dale chronologically orders them so as to provide a panoramic view of the way Judaic baptism has changed throughout the Bible.
Rich with biblical insight and scriptural references, Logos’ edition of An Inquiry Into the Usage of Baptizo and the Nature of Judaic Baptism is essential for anyone wishing to gain a well-rounded and thorough grasp of this much-debated topic. A great addition to any theological collection, this resource proves to be especially accessible in electronic format. As you read An Inquiry Into the Usage of Baptizo and the Nature of Judaic Baptism in Logos Bible Software, you can double-click on any word in any language for a match in your preferred lexicons.
