The article compares the teachings of Martin Luther and Menno Simons on baptism so that contemporary Lutherans and Mennonites can understand one another's positions on issues of baptism more clearly. The method is a comparison of five essential beliefs which each teacher presented in his instructional writings. These comparisons reveal some major grounds for the controversy over infant baptism and the inevitability of the controversy. Indication is also given of the significance of the legal context of the discussion in that time.
