“John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;”
King James Version (KJV)
1:26 John answered, I baptize - To prepare for the Messiah; and indeed to show that Jews, as well as Gentiles, must be proselytes to Christ, and that these as well as those stand in need of being washed from their sins.
Joh 1:26,27 I baptize with water. See PNT "Mt 3:11".
