πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Were Women Baptized?

β€œIf 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 β€œfor 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,

β€œBut 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, β€œGod… will have allΒ menΒ to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim. 2:4), the Greek word for β€œmen” 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 β€œlive peaceably with all men” (Rom. 12:18), β€œdo good unto all men” (Gal. 6:10), β€œabound in love…toward all men” (1 Thes. 3:12), β€œbe patient toward all men” (1 Thes. 5:14), and β€œmake all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery” (Eph. 3:9). source
