“… our goal in this study is to examine the main New Testament passages on the meaning of baptism as if we were hearing or seeing them for the first time. How would the original hearers of certain key statements have understood them? How would Nicodemus have understood John 3:5? How would Peter’s audience have interpreted Acts 2:38? How did Paul understand Ananias’ imperative in Acts 22:16? Also, how would the original readers of Acts and Romans and Colossians have interpreted the teaching on baptism contained therein? How would they have related this teaching to their own personal experience? For one who reads the New Testament today, what is the natural, face-value meaning of the passages on baptism?” (p. 7)
