Yup. It is a Jewish ritual still performed to this day.

Christians don't even know what 'baptism' is or means.

Feel free to invent what ever the Hell you want, pagan.

<quoted text>dusty, dusty, still thinking God spoke in Elizabethan English?
Strong's 779 - askos = a wineskin, a leather bottle
No need to scrap that KJV, because it is literately pretty at times, when God's not slaughtering innocents and coming over virgins, but for actual knowledge about the Bible you might at least augment with a newer translation AND a Strong's, at least.
For what it's worth:
If you have ever made wine or been familiar with it you know the story of the exploding bottles in the basement. That is because the up to 500/1 expansion of carbon dioxide to make a gallon of wine would, if contained, blow up. Guess what would happen in an old Billy goat skin.

No twelve-year-old would put still-fermenting juice in a skin and seal it. You wouldn't even do that with a modern steel-banded cask. So whether new or old, the skin would blow up if not vented. Champaign was not possible until the right cork was discovered along with a bottle strong enough to allow fermentation even after sealing. This allows the Carbon Dioxide to give the "fizz" like a coke without blowing up. If you put champaign in a billy goat skin, seal it, give it a shake it will blow up in your face.

For I am full of words, and the spirit within me compels me; Job 32:18

inside I am like bottled-up wine, like new wineskins ready to burst. Job 32:19

If you seal even a new wineskin then it will burst.

If you don't seal up an old wineskin then it will not burst.

Therefore, the reason not to put new wine into an old skin is to keep it away from the leaven

As a twelve year old I washed the old fruit jars completely and then Mom sterilized them. She put boiled juice in the Jars having killed all of the yeast, put the jars in a pressure cooker, further sterilize and then closed the lid while still too hot for yeast to live. Even then it was not possible to preserve all things.

If you put peaches in an old "peach jar" you know that the jar and the peaches will break and spoil. An old wineskin could not easily be sterilized and therefore you did not put new juice in an old skin. Basic Vinter's 101a.

I find most of 'em mildly irritating - although I do try to be polite.
After all, the Qur'an enjoins us to be kind to the Afflicted of Allah.

It's *everyone's* job to refute the buybull. And there is no better refutation of the buybull than the buybull itself.

Someone tried to write down some half forgotten stories of their ancestors. Same ancestors.
What are you trying so desperately to say ?

That The Bible or the Sumerian Tablets are "half forgotten stories" ?

That's a fact! Jesus was crucified on a Wednesday, 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb.
Actually, you're thinking of the pre-christian myth of Zalmoxis of Thrace; the savior who promised "eternal life" to guests at his sacramental Last Supper. Then he went into the underworld, and rose again on the third day

<quoted text>We give the reader of this thread the courtesy of assuming they own a Bible, and even have read some of it. Sadly, we are often proved wrong, most esp. with alleged "believers".
"Born-again" was never intended to be dogma....
'Baptism' and 'born again' were and are Jewish rituals and beliefs.

They are both still part of the process of converting to Judaism as well as renewing one's commitment to Judaism.

Christian baptism is a mockery of the religion of Jesus.

I blame Paul.

If you had devoted one thimbleful of the time you've spent learning nonsense to applying yourself to the word of God, you would be saved, and not only saved, but snatching others out of the fire.
