In Matthew 3:13-17; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 3:21-22 we see the narrations that Jesus did water baptise under John the baptist. But why did Jesus baptise?
Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented. Matthew 3:15
We clearly see that Jesus did it to fulfill the law the same way that he allowed to be crucified.
My previous post was about Jesus fulfilling the law.
Baptising under the argument “But Jesus water baptise shouldn’t we do it?” Is not very convicing, because he also got crucified. He also said various times take your cross and follow me Matthew 10:38; Matthew 16:24; Mark 8:34; Mark 10:21; Luke 9:23; Luke 14:27. But we do not see any Christians questioning if this passages should be taken in the literal sense or spiritually. Should we automatically take the word Baptism literally submerging in water or should we accept the real Holy Spirit baptism? Jesus water baptised because he did it for me already. Jesus was the only Jew that was able to fulfill the law.
