At the end of the book of Matthew, we see Jesus’ command for baptism in the name of all three persons of the trinity:

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭28:19‬ ‭

However, in the book of Acts, there are many instances where baptisms only occur in the name of Jesus:

  • Acts 2:28 – be baptized…in the name of Jesus Christ.
  • Acts 8:16 – baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
  • Acts 10:48 – baptized in the name of the Lord.
  • Acts 19:5 – baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

So why the lack of the three persons baptism as explicitly stated by Jesus in Matthew?

    @ellied Then I believe the right path is to update the question (if relevant) and or put a bounty on it. Commented Aug 8, 2022 at 17:15
  • not sure who closed the question… the other question references a catholic perspective with sacraments. this one clearly doesn’t…

  • I'm guessing it's because the other question scopes it to Trinitarianism, not Catholicism specifically. A given answer might be from a Catholic perspective, but that doesn't limit the question itself. Commented Aug 9, 2022 at 3:49
