Paul Wheatley is an assistant professor at Nashotah House Theological Seminary. He specializes in the study of the Biblical New Testament. Wheatley discusses the portrayal of Jesus's baptism as it is described in the Book of Mark, and argues that the baptism serves as a metaphor for his death. Wheatley places this discussion within the broader context of the other gospels, and elaborates on their contributions to crafting an image of Jesus as a part-human, part-divine figure who expounds valuable didacts.
