in Theology

Recorded and posted with permission from the 2017 Northern Regional Pastors’ Conference, Indiana District of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, Monday, May 9 to Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Dr. William Weinrich, Professor of Historical Theology, CTSFW
The Gospel of John as Baptismal Text

The narrative of the Gospel of John is replete with and guided by images and stories which reflect the central necessity of baptism for the reality and life of the church. Through discussion of select sections of John’s Gospel, culminating in the passion of Jesus as the institution of baptism, the presentations will attempt to make clear that the Gospel of John is a distinctly baptismal text. To be begotten from above through water and Spirit is to partake in the life of Jesus who is himself the gift of eternal life and whose life is itself the life lived in view of baptism.”
