One Baptism ~ G. W. North

One Baptism by G.W. North (Excerpt from Introduction)

The whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation declares with one voice that there is only one Baptism, although the privilege of actually saying so is given exclusively to the apostle Paul. Within these pages, an attempt is made to arrive at a clear assessment of the truth expressed in the phrase, ‘One Baptism,’ by examining it in:

  • Type, as it is illustrated in the Old Testament
  • The immediate context in which the phrase is found
  • The wider background of the book in which that context and the passage itself are set
  • The whole revelation of the New Testament of which that book is a part

There could hardly be found a more simple and straightforward, yet profound statement of truth than the above passage. Perhaps one of the most surprising features of it to modern minds is that the apostle makes no attempt to explain or expound it to his readers; it must therefore be assumed that they knew exactly what he meant.
