    I think it has open my mind a bit closer to knowing who Jesus really is.
  • Jubilee
    Once we accept Jesus Christ as our the bible states that we are new creatures in Christ Jesus. To show the world that we have had this experience and have become new, Been reborn, we are baptized by being immersed in water as He gave example. This symbolizes that the old man has passed away and behold all things have become new.
  • Pamela carboon
    John came to the Jews to preach the baptism of water for the remission of sins but as John clearly states, Jesus is mightier than He and would come to baptize us with the Holy Spirit. Jesus after he fulfilled the law of baptism in water said repent and believe the gospel, He did not tell us to be baptized in water. water baptism was for the Jews back then.
  • Irene123
    to coupe 1942 ( my birth year) on Mark ch.1 -- Jesus baptism was for our example, to be baptized and by immersion - not 'pouring' or 'sprinkling', and to prove to those many, many people standing around that Jesus was the messiah, hence too the voice from heaven - which they all heard. No, Jesus had no sin.
  • John Lamendola
    Jesus was without sin therefore he had nothing to repent of. He was Baptized to fulfill scripture. Baptizm is a type of burial where sins are remitted.
