"Water baptism, as it was practiced by The Way, is well rooted in the mikvah (immersion in running water) of Traditional Judaism. [it] was a fundamental understanding and practice of The Way that, in turn, became a cherished holy sacrament of the church. This ancient rite was also handed down through the Pharisees to modern day Rabbinical Judaism, where it has always been understood as simply a means of ritual purification." - Bob Fischer, The Ways of The Way, p 33
If we hadn't divorced our roots, maybe today there'd be less of a gulf between what G-d says, and what Church does? "Our sacred literature does not use obscure language, but describes most things in words clearly indicating their meaning. Therefore it is necessary at all times to delve into the literal meaning of words to achieve complete understanding of what is actually meant." - Rabbi Samson Hirsch (1808-1888)
