Jay Quine Comments: The Word "Baptized"
Once a graduate, you are forever identified with your college. We don’t say it this way, but we could say you’ve been baptized into your alma mater! The bible doesn’t always use the word “Baptized” for being dunked in water. While that is its original meaning, the word Baptism was also used to show a connection or identity. The people of Israel were baptized into Moses—they identified with Moses. So to, by faith Christians are baptized into Christ; identified with his death, burial and resurrection. Remember this word with me, Dr. Jay Quine. As a cloth is with colored dye, you are as identified with Christ’s experience so that you should now live with Him.
