Abstract

Christian initiation is defined by Marsh as a process whereby new believers enter and become full members of the community (63). This article seeks to compare and contrast Christian initiation as presented in the Gospel of John and Acts of the Apostles. Jesus’ encounter with Nicodemus and passages of Acts which record initiation are going to be used. Apart from the catechesis, initiation comprises the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and the Eucharist. These three are required for a full Christian initiation.
