Item Description...
The feast of the baptism of Jesus is the second most ancient liturgical celebration and is among the major mysteries of Christ. The synoptics mention Jesus' baptism in the Jordan, and John's Gospel gives a report of it, indicating its importance. The Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan, a systematic study, isolates those themes (Trinitarian, cosmic, sinlessness, liturgical, messianic, divinization, orientation to a future paradise, descent into Sheol/hell, institution of the sacrament of baptism) with which the early Church proclaimed and celebrated the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan. Drawing on Latin, Greek, and Syrian sources, Father McDonnell shows the Jordan event as the dominant paradigm of Christian baptism in the earliest centuries, and also presents its relation to growing interest in the Pauline death and resurrection themes in the fourth century. Because it was widely looked upon as the institution of Christian baptism, this history is relevant to contemporary theology and to the liturgical celebration of Christian baptism. The way the early Church used the baptism of Jesus to communicate the central truths of the faith, especially proclaiming the call to holiness the vocation to participate in the divine life is still valuable today. Liturgists and systematic theologians teaching the sacraments will be particularly interested in this patristic, systematic work.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Practical Gravity of Historical-Theological Curiosities   Jan 6, 2007
This work takes up an interesting problem that attaches to the study of catechetical and mystagogical materials of the early Christian period: the reception of the New Testament witnesses to baptismal practice in the post-biblical churches. As McDonnell argues, the common witness of Christians, East and West, early and late, was that accounts of Jesus baptism in the Jordan were preferred as the foundational textual witness over the Pauline tradition of being buried and raised with Christ.

After surveying the gospel witness in the first two chapters, he proceeds into the second and third century witnesses to its reception. Not content with the usual suspects in the early catholic pantheon, McDonnell summarizes the contribution of adoptionists, Arians, and various non-canonical texts (The Gospel of the Hebrews, The Gospel of the Ebionites, and the Odes of Solomon). In the end, it seems that the Pauline witness to have been largely suppressed, not receiving any serious treatment in baptismal or catechetical literature until Origen.

In the final section, McDonnell explores the Trinitarian character of the baptism of Jesus with pastoral eye. If Christian baptism is Trinitarian, the sum total of Christian life is Trinitarian. He is especially concerned that this will inform Christian pneumatology in its personal and experimental dimensions (McConnell is himself a Charismatic Roman Catholic).
