Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]   A[6]   A[7]   A[8]  

We have now to consider the baptizing of Christ, concerning which there are eight points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether Christ should have been baptized?

A[2] Whether He should have been baptized with the baptism of John?

A[3] Of the time when He was baptized;

A[4] Of the place;

A[5] Of the heavens being opened unto Him;

A[6] Of the apparition of the Holy Ghost under the form of a dove;

A[7] Whether that dove was a real animal?

A[8] Of the voice of the Father witnessing unto Him.
