Were any of the other apostles, besides Paul, ever baptized?

    A study I am doing on Baptism and this question came to mind, that I can't find where they were baptized. Were they baptized? If not, then what is the significance of this?

    Ronnie---the Bible doesn't "out and out" say that any of the Apostles were baptized other than the Apostle Paul

    But it does say that they were early followers/disciples of John the Baptist---in which case, would it be safe to assume that they were at some point in their ministries---actually baptized by "The Baptizer!!???"

    A quick glance at the post-resurrection ministry will tell us that Peter and John commanded that the new converts be baptized----now--would it be a double standard if they command others to be baptized and they themselves never were???!!

    See??
