Of the Baptizing of Christ
We have now to consider the baptizing of Christ, concerning which there are eight points of inquiry:
- Whether Christ should have been baptized?
- Whether He should have been baptized with the baptism of John?
- Of the time when He was baptized;
- Of the place;
- Of the heavens being opened unto Him;
- Of the apparition of the Holy Ghost under the form of a dove;
- Whether that dove was a real animal?
- Of the voice of the Father witnessing unto Him.
