Does not this imply that their surrender to his “baptism of repentance” would grant them entrance into that “kingdom” when it arrived?”  “NO! For all Old Testament “prophets” preached “repentance” to sinful Jews under the law of Moses in Israel who anticipated the coming of the Messiah and a new kingdom when the New Testament age began (Isaiah 2:2; Daniel 2:44). 3/2/2015 29 Bible Studies by Dan Billingsly

  34. 34. JACKSON DEPENDS ON SECTARIANS…  Jackson quotes William Larkin, professor of New Testament and Greek at Presbytarian Columbia Biblical Seminary to prove his position on John’s baptism.  Wonder if Jackson will accept Larkin’s position on Ephesians 4:4-6 and the “one church” equals many denominations? 3/2/2015 34 Bible Studies by Dan Billingsly

  37. 37. JOHN’S OT BAPTISM DID NOT…  Place people into the death of Christ as does NT baptism – because Christ not dead!  “3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:3-4). 3/2/2015 37 Bible Studies by Dan Billingsly

And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. 3And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism. 4Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus. 5When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. 7And all the 3/2/2015Bible Studies by Dan Billingsly 38
  39. 39. JOHN’S BAPTISM NOT…  For NT salvation, for there was no NT Savior in the OT age of MMLJ – before the cross!  No NT salvation as long as OT was in force!  No NT salvation as long as OT sabbath, tithing, animal sacrifice, worship in Jerusalem temple, and while more than 600 commandments of the law of Moses were still in force! 3/2/2015 39 Bible Studies by Dan Billingsly
