While perusing Flickr, I came across some interesting baptism photos. Enjoy.
Baptism in Afghanistan on Easter Sunday.
Baptism in the James River at Huntington Park in Newport News, Virginia
Baptism at River City Church
Baptismal pool at St. George Cathedral in Jerusalem.
Baptismal font at the Birmingham Union Workhouse Chapel and used in infant baptisms. Was constructed in the 1850s, according to the photographer.
Last but not least. Some people believe Jesus was baptized in this area.
Photographer Jan Smith reports:
The Baptism Site on the Jordan side of the Jordan River is one of the most important recent discoveries in biblical archaeology. Excavations only began here in 1996, following Jordan's peace treaty with Israel in 1994, but have already uncovered more than 20 churches, caves and baptismal pools dating from the Roman and Byzantine periods.
Although the identification is not absolutely certain, archaeology has shown that the area known as Wadi Kharrar has long been believed to be the biblical Bethany-beyond-the-Jordan, where John the Baptist lived and Jesus was baptized.
