It would help if you READ the scripture, then you would understand that teh authority of God's Truth is NOT SCRIPTURE but God's own spirit which comes to anyone who stops sinning GIVING ALL TRUTH in life [John 16:13]
There is nothing about the life, death, and teachings of Jesus in Roman records or even second hand commentary. Other than a passing comment from Josephus, it's almost the ONLY way we can know these things. Even such references as you made to there being, in your opinion, three baptisms, comes from your reading of the Bible. So, let's let it end here
I say this because if you had read the scripture you might have tried Love in place of sin and found out that God gives His Truth freely to anyone who obeys Him and Loves all men
and it does not depend upon scripture, some few men have Loved in life simply because they have no belief in sin ...
but maybe in the new earth you will find your ideas closer to apparent reality as billions follow the FEW saints of this earth to be saved by perfecting their love after all men are resurrected to be judged by Loving works or sin in the kingdom come... clearly the example of the saints works better with so many in one place unlike the few [some 2000 alive today] scattered worldwide , inspiring only the few they are able to serve now...
