Water that has been blessed, as in holy water in the RCC? Water considered
metaphorically as a symbol of something else, like the spirit-world? Or is
it like the Mandaens who baptize in "Jordan pools" where the water is
flowing freely, ie. "living"? Assuming (a big assumption) that the Mandaens
actually were founded by John the Baptist could this be the source for this
idea in Thomas?
