Thayer's Expanded Definition

βαπτισμός, βαπτισμου, (βαπτίζω), a washing, purification effected by means of water: Mark 7:4, 8 (R G L Tr in brackets) (ξεστῶν καί ποτηρίων); of the washings prescribed by the Mosaic law, Hebrews 9:10. βαπτισμῶν διδαχῆς equivalent to διδαχῆς περί βαπτισμῶν, Hebrews 6:2 (where L text, WH text, βαπτισμῶν διδαχῆς), which seems to mean an exposition of the difference between the washings prescribed by the Mosaic law and Christian baptism. (Among secular writings Josephus alone, Antiquities 18, 5, 2, uses the word, and of John's baptism; (respecting its interchange with βάπτισμα cf. examples in Sophocles Lexicon, under the word 2 and Lightfoot on Colossians 2:12, where L marginal reading Tr read βαπτισμός; cf. Trench, § xcix.).)

Abbott-Smith Manual Greek Lexicon of the New Testament

βαπτισμός , -οῦ ,

(< βαπτίζω ),

prop., the act of which βάπτισμα is the result;

1. a dipping, washing, lustration: Mark 7:4; of Jewish ceremonial, Hebrews 9:10; in Hebrews 6:2, βαπτισμῶν διδαχήν (-ῆς ), "the pl. and the peculiar form seem to be used to include Christian baptism with other lustral rites " (Westc., in l).

2. baptism: FlJ, Ant., 18, 5, 2 (of John's baptism), and some Fathers (v. Soph., s.v.). Not so in NT, unless ἐν τ . βαπτισμῷ in the act of baptism, Colossians 2:12, be read with Tr. (Rec., WH, R, -ματι ).†

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Grimm’s statement that ";among prof. writ. Josephus alone (Antt. xviii. 5. 2) uses the word, and of John’s baptism"; is traversed by the ordinary text of Plutarch’s Moralia : see the De Superstitione 3, p. 166 A, where he names among superstitions πηλώσεις καταβορβορώσεις βαπτισμούς , ῥίψεις ἐπὶ πρόσωπον , αἰσχρὰς προκαθίσεις , ἀλλοκότους προσκυνήσεις . But, unfortunately, the word is only Bentley’s emendation for σαββατισμούς , according to Bernadakis’ apparatus—was the change necessary?

As distinguished from βάπτισμα in which the result is included, βαπτισμός is the act of immersion (Blass Gr. p. 62); and hence in Hebrews 6:2 Chase (Confirmation in the Apost. Age, p. 44 f.) understands διδαχὴ βαπτισμῶν as = ";‘the teaching about acts of washing,’ the exposition of the truths and spiritual principles embodied and expressed in the baptism of this disciple and of that.";
