The Gospel of John does not say that John the Baptist baptized Jesus. It doesn’t - the other gospels do, but this one does not. John is named as a baptizer. The gospel says that John sees Jesus walking towards him, and it records John as saying that he had seen the Holy Spirit descend upon Jesus like a dove. But it doesn’t say when that happened, and it doesn’t say that John was the one who had baptized Jesus. Many would say, “But the other three Gospels tell of John baptizing Jesus, so we know he did it.” I do accept that John baptized Jesus, but I’m grateful for the fact that the Gospel of John does not make it clear. If John is just a “regular” person calling people to repentance, if John is “just” a witness, if John is “just” a truth-speaker, then John is “just” like you and me.
