Mass Baptism


Well-known member
And John 1:31 wrote that water baptism was made known and manifest to Israel , and I have never seen where it was manifested to gentiles ?

At Cornelius' place. (Acts 10)
BTW, what was "manifested" to Israel was Jesus...not baptism.
John 1:29-31..."The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
30 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.
31 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water."

Peter baptized some gentiles
Peter did not know the gospel of the grace of God when he baptized gentiles.

There are both Jews and gentiles is both of God's plans. But they have different standings in each.

God chose Israel for a purpose. God called Paul for a different purpose. We, today, are to follow Paul as he follows Christ.

1Cor 4:16 (AKJV/PCE)
(4:16) Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.

1Cor 11:1 (AKJV/PCE)
(11:1) Be ye followers of me, even as I also [am] of Christ.
