Christ our passover has been sacrificed.—1 Cor. 5:7.
Since Jesus was sinless, his death was a sacrifice of great value. By means of it, Jesus provided deliverance from sin and death for faithful descendants of Adam and Eve. Jesus’ death on the tree was the ‘bruising in the heel’ of the promised Seed. (Gen3-15.htm Heb 9-11-14 )

2. Was the Trinitarian Formula Used in New Testament Times?:
No record of such use can be discovered in the Ac or the epistles of the apostles. The baptisms recorded in the New Testament after the Day of Pentecost are administered "in the name of Jesus Christ" (Acts 2:38), "into the name of the Lord Jesus" (Acts 8:16), "into Christ" (Romans 6:3; Galatians 3:27). This difficulty was considered by the Fathers; Ambrose says:
Quod verbo tacitum fuerat, expressum est fide, "What had not been expressed in word, was expressed by faith." On close inspection the difficulty is found to rest on the assumption that the above are records of baptismal formulas used on those occasions. The fact is that these records contain no baptismal formula at all, but "merely state that such persons were baptized as acknowledged Jesus to be the Lord and the Christ" (Plummer). The same can be said of any person baptized in our day with the Trinitarian formula. That this formula was the established usage in the Christian church is proven by records of baptisms in Justin (Apol., I, 61) and Tertullian (Adv. Prax., XXVI). 3. Was Christian Baptism Really a New Ordinance?:
practiced among the Jews prior to the solemn inauguration of this ordinance by
the risen Christ. The ceremonial washings of the Jews are classed with the
transient forms of the Levitical worship (Hebrews 9:9,10), which had not been intended to endure except
"until a time of reformation." They were removed when Christian
baptism was erected into an abiding ordinance of the
The command in Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16 is
all-embracing; so is the statement concerning the necessity of baptism in John 3:5. After
reading these statements, one feels inclined, not to ask, Should infants be
baptized? but Why should they not be baptized? The
onus probandi rests on those who reject infant baptism. The desire to have
their infants baptized must have been manifested on the day when the first
three thousand were baptized at
5. Why Did Paul not Baptize?:
Paul did baptize
Crispus, Gaius and Stephanas with his household. These baptisms he performed at
"not so much to baptize as to preach" (Farrar in Pulpit Commentary). If they are taken in any other sense, it is impossible to protect Paul against the charge that he did something that he was not authorized to do, when he baptized Crispus, etc.
6. What Is the Baptism for the Dead?:
1 Corinthians 15:29 is sometimes taken to mean that the early Christians practiced baptism by proxy. After they had been converted to Christianity, it is held, they desired to convey the benefits of their faith to their departed friends who had died in paganism, by having themselves baptized "in their behalf," perhaps on their graves. We have no evidence from history that such a practice prevailed in the early Christian churches. Nor does the text suggest it. The Greek preposition huper expresses also the motive that may prompt a person to a certain action. In this case the motive was suggested by the dead, namely, by the dead in so far as they shall rise. The context shows this to be the meaning:
If a person has sought baptism in view of the fact that the dead are to rise to be judged, his baptism is valueless, if the dead do not rise.

2 Corinthians 5:18–6:2; Revelation 22:17.
But all things are from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of the reconciliation, 19 namely, that God was by means of Christ reconciling a world to himself, not reckoning to them their trespasses, and he committed the word of the reconciliation to us.
20 We are therefore ambassadors substituting for Christ, as though God were making entreaty through us. As substitutes for Christ we beg: “Become reconciled to God.” 21 The one who did not know sin he made to be sin for us, that we might become God’s righteousness by means of him.
6 Working together with him, we also entreat YOU not to accept the undeserved kindness of God and miss its purpose. 2 For he says: “In an acceptable time I heard you, and in a day of salvation I helped you.” Look! Now is the especially acceptable time. Look! Now is the day of salvation.
17 And the spirit and the bride keep on saying: “Come!” And let anyone hearing say: “Come!” And let anyone thirsting come; let anyone that wishes take life’s water free.
