    Beasley-Murray makes confession about Matthew 28:19

    Over all the book helps those seeking answers about baptism. What does it signify, how is it performed, and makes an attempt at the formula to be invoked but stops shy of accepting the excluviness of that with Acts 2:38 'in the name of Jesus Christ.' The author does make a profound confession that may shock many readers, but he has presented the truth on a much debated issue, that is the wording of the original Matthew 28:19 text. He confesses that the traditional wording of 'Father, Son, and Holy Ghost' were not in the original Matthew text and was inserted after some time of liturgical use. He seems to agree with Eusebius in 17 of his writings that the original wording was: Go ye therefore and teach all nations baptizing them in my name.' This book should be in the library of every Oneness Apostolic Minister and also those who really want to know the truth of why Acts 2:38 is the one and only true formula of baptism in the New Testament. Purchase the book, the information is well worth the money.
