Of the Baptizing of Christ

We have now to consider the baptizing of Christ, concerning which there are eight points of inquiry:

  1. Whether Christ should have been baptized?
  2. Whether He should have been baptized with the baptism of John?
  3. Of the time when He was baptized;
  4. Of the place;
  5. Of the heavens being opened unto Him;
  6. Of the apparition of the Holy Ghost under the form of a dove;
  7. Whether that dove was a real animal?
  8. Of the voice of the Father witnessing unto Him.
