Summary

"The nature of Christ's baptism was a public covenant engagement to "fulfill an righteousness." The sign and seal of this covenant-baptism was pure water. " It is finished," proclaimed this covenant fulfilled on Calvary by redeeming blood. The baptism of Christ on Calvary is an atonement for sin. The baptism of his people, with water, is the symbol-remission of sin; the reality being the baptism of the soul by the Holy Ghost. To talk of "following Christ," in his distinctive baptism, is a folly and a sin which requires his gracious intercession -- "Father, forgive them, they know not what they do." "
