JUDAIC BAPTISM is not intended as a theological argument about baptism, it is a philosophical presentation of evidence for the meaning of the Greek word for baptism in Jewish and Patristic literature. First, Dale examines the word in the Jewish writers Josephus, Philo, and Jesus the son of Sirach. Next he explores the Patristic writers of the Old Testament, the Apocrypha authors, Jewish baptisms in the New Testament, and Josephus on Judaic and Johannic baptisms. Lastly, Dr. Dale offers his own conclusions, based upon usage. This book does not treat the issue of infant baptism (paedobaptism).
