    Jesus is our master in humility.If Jesus baptized John that day,it would cause division in the church.John baptized Jesus to fulfill all righteousness and to perfect our humility towards brethren.

    jesus left the glories of heaven for 33yrs to be the sinless sacrifice for lost
    humanity yet people today still try to establish there own rightteusness
    by every false reason to get to heaven yet end up in hell with a false
    and fatal view how am i right before a holy GOD.

    In answering mr kana s question I think most religions in the world can never be fully understood. That is why in most catholic prayers and indeed apostle Paul used the word Mystery of the gospel. If u will follow Christ don t seek to unerdstand it the bible say just believe,it say
    have faith.The bible say the secret of the lord is with those who fear him
