Joshua 4:7

''Someday your children will ask, ''Why are these rocks here?'' Then you can tell them how the water stopped flowing when the chest was being carried across the river. These rocks will always remind our people of what happened here today.'' Joshua 4:7

Throughout the Bible, memory is an important concept. The Old Testament lays plenty of stress upon remembering God's deeds throughout the history of the people. There were festivals of many sorts to re-enact various aspects of Yahweh's history of redemption. We have seen the important place Passover held in fashioning the nation and calling each new generation to consider themselves personally redeemed in the experience of each year's observation.

Mark 1:8

''I immerse you with water, but he will immerse you with the Spirit of the Holy One!'' Mark 1:8

Traditionally, we use the term baptism in our translations of the New Testament, but the term simply means to immerse. On the other hand, it can indicate being joined with someone or something. We also tend to use the phrase in English, ''Holy Spirit'' as an entity somehow separate from God, yet the phrase in Greek might be better rendered, the ''Spirit of the Holy One.''
