Day 19: "Waters of Judah: Waters of Baptism?" 1st Nephi 18-21 pgs 41-50
There was one expression in my reading that puzzled me. In 1st Nephi 20:  Hearken and hear this, O house of Jacob, who are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah, or out of the waters of baptism, who swear by the name of the Lord, and make mention of the God of Israel, yet they swear not in truth nor in righteousness.
I want to know why the "waters of Judah" are the "waters of baptism" I read the TG and only Isaiah uses this expression. Does anyone have an answer?
