    Title: The History of Infant Baptism: Together with Mr. Gale's Reflections, and Dr. Wall's Defence, Volume 4 The History of Infant Baptism: Together with Mr. Gale's . Whether the earliest Christians practiced infant baptism, and thus whether modern Christians should do so, has remained a subject of debate between Christian scholars at least since the earliest clear reference to the practice by Tertullian in the early third century. Some claim that Biblical baptism can be interpreted and thus relative, others support the Biblical literal baptism as a public.

      Churches that practice infant baptism, believe that the whole story line of God’s revelation points towards infant baptism and does not justify excluding the children from believers from the church. These points are important to them: Children in the covenant of Abraham. In the Old Testament, God gave His promises to Abraham and his children.   What is the biblical case for believer’s baptism? What biblical support do paedobaptists point to for their belief in infant baptism? What is the relationship between the old and new covenants?

William Wall (6 January – 13 November ) was a British priest in the Church of England who wrote extensively on the doctrine of infant was generally an apologist for the English church and sought to maintain peace between it and the Anabaptists.

He was born in Kent, got his BA from Queen's College, Oxford in and his MA in After ordination, he took the living. The earliest explicit mention of infant “baptism” in the history of the church is from the African church father, Tertullian, who lived from about A.D.

The practice of infant baptism evolved over time before it became a standard practice within the Catholic Church. Some of the most notable members of the early Catholic Church were Polycarp and Justin these famous Christian. If the opponent of infant baptism could point to one case of an adult baptism in the New Testament where the person who is being baptized as an adult was the child of Christian parents when that person was an infant, then they would have a relevant case to point to, in fact that would be all.

Gale and others. It wasn’t until the sixteenth century that Christians began to question the legitimacy of infant baptism. So we come to administer the sacrament of baptism to this child today with the weight of church history to encourage us and the example of redemptive history to confirm our practice.

Conversely, he demonstrates that the New Testament actually has much to say in support of the baptism of infants, albeit in indirect (but important) ways. This, of course, would be contrary to historical Christian practice.
