Dying - Many - Deaths

Unlike pagan rites
of initiation, Christian
baptism was not seen
as a magical rite that
 was instantly expected
to change a person.

Christ's death and
Resurrection that
raised, transformed
and transfigured him

was the result of dying
many times before his

death on the cross as
he sought to do his
Father's will despite
the forces of evil.
