The Baptism of Jesus Christ: Why Was Jesus baptized?

John the Baptist was a human being like us. He was also marked with sins and weaknesses. However, he also believed in the Saviour Jesus Christ who would come, be baptized by him and crucified and rise again to solve away all his sins and the sins of the whole world.

On the other hand, Jesus Christ is God Himself who came wearing our human flesh.
Because John the Baptist realized that he was lowly man before Jesus Christ. He could not understand why a lowly man like him could lay his hands on God's head to baptize Him. As a man he was wondering why he himself must do this, and whether or not there's no other way for Jesus Christ to take away the sins of the world. But could there be any other way for the sins of the world to passed onto Jesus Christ? No, because the Old Testament's sacrificial system of laying on of hand is a shadow of Jesus Christ baptism.

So Jesus Christ commanded John the Baptist saying “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him. (Matthew 3:15)

In this verse Jesus said "for thus", this means "in this way", "there is no other way but this". Like this Jesus Christ Himself told John the Baptist to go ahead and lay his two hands on His head and baptize Him so that He could receive all the sins of the whole world onto Himself. He said there was no other way He could have all the sins of the world sins transfer to His body except through His baptism. And John allowed Jesus to be baptized by him.

Then the next day after baptizing Jesus Christ, John witnessed as He saw Him walking by and said to people around him "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world." (John 1:29). John the Baptist could bear such witness because he actually passed the sins of the world onto Jesus's head through the baptism he gave Him just 'yesterday.'

Furthermore, before Jesus Christ was crucified He went to a place called Gethsemane. There He prayed to God Father three times for the cup of the suffering of crucifixion to be taken away from Him. He was also asking God the Father whether or not there could not be another way for the judgment of sins to be paid apart from crucifixion. Jesus Christ came in likeness of human flesh, He could understand the pains He was about to suffer in His flesh. But just as there is no other way for Jesus to take away our sins except through the baptism He received from John the Baptist, there is also no other way for Him to pay the wages of the sins except through His death on the Cross.


Like this, the gospel of the baptism of Jesus Christ in the Jordan River and His blood of the Cross is as clear as crystal. The faith in the baptism of Jesus Christ is necessary to our salvation.

But now, have you come in contact with this beautiful gospel of the water and the Spirit?

I want to understand something. Those who laid hand on Jesus to baptist him. Before then, had they committed all known sin to be able to transfer the sins of mankind to Jesus?
