Jesus instructed us to make followers, “BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT” [Mt 28:19b NI], teaching them to obey everything He told us. Jesus never specified how much water to use and the apostles considered both immersion and pouring acceptable [Didache 8:1-3]. Also, during those days there were three types of baptism. First, Judaism requires converts into Judaism to immerse themselves fully in water in a mikveh or pool. Second, is John’s baptism of repentance [Ac 19:4] and third is the baptism in “name of the Lord Jesus” [Ac 19:5]. This description, ‘baptizing in Jesus’ name’, clarifies which baptism and is not a method of baptism overruling Jesus’ instructions, “BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT”.  Jesus knows, baptizing in Jesus’ name only is a lie!
