Settling this once and for all!
#5
Hi

There is a difference among the verses. The NIV reading say that one has to "repent and be baptized" to receive the forgiveness of sins.

The NASB and NKJV meanings have a slight difference showing that baptism is a sign of forgiveness, not a requirement to be forgiven.

The reason this is so divisive is that some churches teach that one is forgiven when they do the "sinner's prayer" (faith + repentance), and that other churches teach that forgiveness comes from baptism itself (faith + repentance + immersion in water).

So, what is the correct rendering of the Aramaic?

Can someone who knows Peshitta, without bias, show what the Aramaic reads?

Shlama,
