JesusFan asked on another thread, "Did jesus ever baptise anyone?" He may have meant the question as rhetorical but the fact is that Jesus did baptize, at least through His disciples, and His numbers exceeded those of John. Was this a different baptism than that of John? Cf. Acts 19:1-7. Did Jesus begin to baptize (John 3) and then turn it over to His disciples (John 4)? Could it be that Jesus baptized His disciples and then turned the baptismal duties over to them? Why was Jesus baptizing at all? I have never heard or read any commentary of this issue so maybe some people here can shed more light than obfuscation on the matter.
