Not to be confused with 911, bapto. The clearest example that shows
the meaning of baptizo is a text from the Greek poet and physician
Nicander, who lived about 200 B.C. It is a recipe for making pickles
and is helpful because it uses both words. Nicander says that in
order to make a pickle, the vegetable should first be 'dipped'
(bapto) into boiling water and then 'baptised' (baptizo) in the
vinegar solution. Both verbs concern the immersing of vegetables in a
solution. But the first is temporary. The second, the act of
baptising the vegetable, produces a permanent change.
When used in the New Testament, this word more often refers to our
union and identification with Christ than to our water baptism. e.g.
Mr 16:16. 'He that believes and is baptised shall be saved'.
Christ is saying that mere intellectual assent is not enough. There
must be a union with him, a real change, like the vegetable to the
(Bible Study Magazine, James Montgomery Boice, May 1989).
