    Just watched a Discovery Channel show on the life of Jesus and was fascinated by its depiction of baptism ... full immersion, according to a Jordanian specialist. In the video, baptism is presented as by immersion, not affusion. Apparently, early Christians built baptismal pools along the Jordan for immersion, to immitate the baptism of Jesus.

    Not authoritative, but interesting.
