2. Did Jesus baptize or not?

a) Yes: John 3:22 - "After these things came Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried with them, and baptized."

b) No: John 4:2 - "Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples."

c) John 3:22 (NIV) says "After this, Jesus and his disciples went out into the Judean countryside, where he spent some time with them, and baptized." And John 4:2 (NIV) says "although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples." Given the proximity of the two verses, we would think that John meant that Jesus was with his disciples while his disciples were baptizing people in John 3:22, and that Jesus himself was not baptizing people.


The End ...
