The Initiation

Number 23 in the series Holy Epistle to the Hebrews

The elementary principles include the subject of baptism and instructions regarding immersions. In this teaching, we look at the evidence from early Christian documents. Find out how the second-century Christians welcomed new converts into the body of Messiah. This teaching contains quotations from Justin Martyr's First Apology, from the Didache, and from the Apostolic Constitutions. The quotations are available in the PDF document below titled Initiation Texts.
