Catechism Class: LD27 Q72 and 73 WHAT! Baptism Saves You?

Season 3
Catechism Class: Lord's Day 27 Q72-73 Baptism Saves You?

In this episode we diverge from our normal lessons to look at a perplexing passage from 1st Peter 3:18, where Peter tells us that "Baptism now saves you..." Whatever can he mean? we know that baptism cannot save us! Doesn't Peter know that?

Yes, he does, and if we put the verse in context we will learn HOW baptism saves us, by pointing us away from itself, from the physical act of washing (in whatever format) to Christ, just as the water of the flood saved Noah, by compelling him to enter the ark for safety.
