Paul's explanation of baptism

Tonight on Search the Scriptures LIVE!, we will discuss Paul’s explanation of baptism. Romans 6 is the most important passage in the New Testament for the Orthodox understanding of what baptism is and its role in the Christian life. Why does Paul discuss baptism at this point? What does it have to do with everything that came before – salvation by faith, Abraham and his faith, Adam and the fall? Listen to previous episodes here.
