KJV Translation Count — Total: 22x
The KJV translates Strong's G908 in the following manner: baptism (22x).
Outline of Biblical Usage [?]
  1. immersion, submersion

    1. of calamities and afflictions with which one is quite overwhelmed

    2. of John's baptism, that purification rite by which men on confessing their sins were bound to spiritual reformation, obtained the pardon of their past sins and became qualified for the benefits of the Messiah's kingdom soon to be set up. This was valid Christian baptism, as this was the only baptism the apostles received and it is not recorded anywhere that they were ever rebaptised after Pentecost.

    3. of Christian baptism; a rite of immersion in water as commanded by Christ, by which one after confessing his sins and professing his faith in Christ, having been born again by the Holy Spirit unto a new life, identifies publicly with the fellowship of Christ and the church.

      In Rom 6:3, Paul states we are "baptised unto death" meaning that we are not only dead to our former ways, but they are buried. To return to them is as unthinkable for a Christian as for one to dig up a dead corpse! See also discussion of baptism under the previous Strong's number (907).
Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
βάπτισμα báptisma, bap'-tis-mah; from G907; baptism (technically or figuratively):—baptism.
