πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Were Women Baptized?

“If the purpose of water baptism was to make the Jews a kingdom of priests (Ex. 19:6), did women have to be baptized?”

It’s true that Jewish men were baptized because priests had to be baptized (Ex. 29:4), and only men could be priests. But water baptism wasΒ alsoΒ “for the remission of sins” (Mark 1:4; Acts 2:38), so women needed to be baptized under God’s kingdom program for Israel for that reason. That’s why we read,

“But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God… they were baptized,Β both men and women” (Acts 8:12).

Don’t forget, when the Bible says things like, “God… will have allΒ menΒ to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim. 2:4), the Greek word for “men” there isΒ anthropos, from which we get our wordΒ anthropology, the study ofΒ mankind, both men and women. Be sure to keep that in mind when you read Paul say to “live peaceably with all men” (Rom. 12:18), “do good unto all men” (Gal. 6:10), “abound in love…toward all men” (1 Thes. 3:12), “be patient toward all men” (1 Thes. 5:14), and “make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery” (Eph. 3:9). source

Bible Verse for 11/30/21

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, — 2 Peter 3:10-11
