Speaker: Tim Pebworth 6/13/20
After recounting the story of Edgardo Mortara’s kidnapping in 1858, Tim Pebworth contrasts mainstream Catholic and protestant baptismal practices with the New Testament instruction. What is the meaning of baptism? Who should be baptized? How is someone baptized? Who has the authority to baptize? And most significantly, what are the ongoing implications of baptism and the receiving of God’s spirit though the laying on of hands?
