  • RICHARD SOLIS on Zechariah 9:13
    Question: Which is the correct water baptismal formula, Matthew 28:19 0r Acts 2:38
  • Jesse - in Reply on Zechariah 9:13
    There is no formula. The reason all three of the Godhead are mentioned in Matthew 28:19 is because the Jews immersed three times. Today we do it once. But the Jews would dunk three times for baptism. They don't why, except Jesus said when you immerse three times, one's in the name of the Father, one's in the name of the Son, and one's in the name of the Holy Spirit. Guess who changed it Constantine! He said if Jesus told them to do it three times, we're only going to do it once just to be different. That's why Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is used in Matthew 28:19. But in Acts 2:38, they baptized in the name of Jesus. So now we have this big battle over baptisms, one is Jewish, and one is Gentile.
