Re: Why Baptize In Jesus Name

My favorite answer to the question of why baptize in Jesus name is this.... Who died on Calvary? Who did the redemptive work for mankind? Then you answer that question, answer this one... who did God give a name above every name?
Philippians 2:9-11
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Who died? Jesus

Whose name is highly exalted above all other names? The name of Jesus!

Then you add this scripture
Acts 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

How can you argue any further? Baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus is the name under which there is authority, and power. Jesus is the one who suffered, died, and took sin captive for all mankind!

Why would you not WANT to be baptized in anything else than the name that is above all names, JESUS!
