Israel (September 24, 2019)
If you’ve been following Lecrae on social media, then you’re watching his amazing trip to Israel where he was baptized in the Jordan River.
Apparently, since this is technically his 2nd baptism, some people in theological circles are taking the opportunity to bash the famous Christian hip-hop artist on social media claiming it was merely a publicity stunt. However, it is a well-known fact that many Christians who visit the Holy Land get baptized in the Jordan River if they get the chance.

“Today we got baptized in the Jordan River. The one John baptized Jesus in. ????? I was joking before I got dipped and I said if a bird lands out here like the dove on Jesus, ? bruh….I’m gonna have a heart attack. Just take me to heaven cause God is speakin too loud! Well look at the pics. ?. I love the Jordan because of all the symbolism it holds. It was the border of the promised land. It was the picture of safety and security. Getting baptized in it was an incredible experience for me. ? ? Here’s an interesting fact. Baptism didn’t start with John the Baptist. The Jewish ritual immersion in water is called a mikvah, which is a Hebrew word meaning gathering of waters. Immersion in a mikvah also represents death and resurrection. When you come back out of the water, you come back to life as a new creation. When I was immersed into Christ ✝️(not just water) I also became a new creation: “Therefore, if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” The more you learn the Jewish roots the more truth comes alive.”
