  The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John, although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. The point came up in a discussion of J where Jesus washes his disciples’ feet. When Peter protests, Jesus states he must do this for Peter to have a share with him. Peter then swings to. 'Make Disciples.' Jesus' command is clear. But what is a disciple? And how are we to 'make' them? Based on decades of experience, Disciples Are Made, Not Born explains and illustrates the process of disciple-making that Jesus taught and modeled.

The number of believers had reached at Pentecost and God baptized them with his Holy Spirit. These then went out baptizing those who needed it. Catholic & Christian provides the answers you need. It is a readable and concise summary of often misunderstood Catholic beliefs, the teachings and practices that puzzle Catholics and non-Catholics alike. This is a book for all Catholics who want to know more about their faith.

Opposition to infant baptism is not a new phenomenon. In the Middle Ages, some groups developed that rejected infant baptism, e.g., the Waldenses and Catharists. Later, the Anabaptists (“re-baptizers”) echoed them, claiming that infants are incapable of being baptized validly. But the historic Christian Church has always held that Christ. Who baptized the apostles? Who baptized the 12 disciples of Jesus? The Answer: The scripture does not provide an answer to this question. It does provide information that enables a reasonable assumption. The evidence is the same as that relating to the thief on the cross which is discussed in response to Question to which you are referred. Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good and his goodness endure for ever amen:Mine opinion concerning the topic of,WHEN WERE THE APOSTLES BAPTIZED,.The apostles were surely baptized by JESUS himself because if you read from John chapter 3 verses 22 – 26,its reads After this Jesus and his disciples went out into Judean countryside,where he spent some time .
