Quotes and links mentioned:
- The Year of Living Biblically, by AJ Jacobs
- Paul saw baptism as being baptized into the death of Jesus and emerging from the waters as being co-raised with Jesus Christ. This act of baptism isn’t just about personal confession and personal faith. The public act of baptism is in and of itself a public declaration of the saving Story of Jesus. If done right, baptism gospels the gospel in a public manner. — Scot Mcknight
- At baptism we enter the community of believers concretized in the local congregation. As baptized persons we are members of the community of faith, which means we share the one story of the people of God. — Stanley Grenz
