MEDIA REVIEWS
What was Jesus' relationship with John the Baptist? Did Jesus baptize people like John? Where did Christian baptism come from? In this book Dr. Dapaah looks at these and other important questions, coming up with some intriguing answers. His well-written work offers thought-provoking insights into the questions of the historical Jesus, and I very warmly commend it. -- David Wenham, Dean and Lecturer, Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University
Here is a robust challenge to the tacit and improbable assumption of most NT specialists that baptism, which was so prominent in the launching of Jesus' ministry, simply disappeared from the scene during that period only to reemerge fully formed in the early church in Acts. I have long believed that Jesus, no less than John, was a 'Baptist,' and that initiation to discipleship would have been incomplete without some such rite. This is a study to be read and pondered by all who want to know what it was like to be part of the early Jesus movement. -- R.T. France, formerly Principal of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University
Well-written, with a remarkable maturity of style. -- Paul J. Achtemeier, Professor of Biblical Interpretation Emeritus, Union Theological Seminary
