A-Z: Common sayings from the Bible: Baptism of fire


A potentially destructive initiation, a 'make-or-break' beginning to an enterprise.


In Acts 2:3, the Holy Spirit of God appeared to the believers in Christ on the day of Pentecost as tongues of flame. This is understood as 'baptism in the Spirit', and it prepared the early believers to preach about Jesus; many were later martyred for their faith.
