"What was Jesus' relationship with John the Baptist? Did Jesus baptize people like John? Where did Christian baptism come from? In this book Dr. Dapaah looks at these and other important questions, coming up with some intriguing answers. His well-written work offers thought-provoking insights into the questions of the historical Jesus, and I very warmly commend it." — David Wenham, Dean and Lecturer, Wycliffe Hall, Oxford University
