THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES - Chapter 10 - Verse 47

Verse 47. Can any man forbid water, etc. They have shown that they are favoured in the same way as the Jewish converts. God has manifested himself to them, as he did to the Jews on the day of Pentecost. Is it not clear, therefore, that they are entitled to the privilege of Christian baptism? The expression here used is one that would naturally refer to water being brought; that is, to a small quantity; and would seem to imply that they were baptized, not by immersion, but by pouring or sprinkling.

{l} "Can any man forbid" Ac 8:12 {} "Ghost" "Spirit"
