He walked a short distance to the river Jordan.

No, he did not walk a short distance to the river Jordan. He walked approximately 60 miles from Galilee to the river Jordan to be baptized by the only man ordained by God to administer Baptism. 60 miles is not a short distance to a walking man.

Where were the disciples of Jesus baptized?

Great question. Lets go to the bible to find out. John 3:22 After these things cam Jesus and his disciples into the land of Judea and there he tarried with them and baptized. In fact Jesus not only baptized the disicples but baptized many others as well.

How many people did John the Baptist baptize the same day as Jesus?

The number is not given in the Bible, but there are two interesting verses that indicate that Jesus did not baptize anyone - See John 4.1 & 2 - When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John, (Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)

Were the twelve apostles of Jesus baptized?

We don't know. However, it was very likely that many of them were originally disciples of John the Baptist (e.g. Philip, Nathaniel) and so, as a result, may well have been baptised. But there are no records of baptism among the disciples. I don't think they have gotten baptized physically but spiritually they already have been baptized for Jesus baptized with fire and whoever believes in Him is granted eternal life.

Who was the first person to be baptized in the Bible?

In the King James versionJohn the Baptist is reported as baptizing people in Matthew 3. They were unnamed.He baptizes Jesus in Matthew 3 : 16, and in Mark 1 : 9, and in Luke 3 : 16, and in John 1 : 34John 3 : 22 mentions that Jesus baptised people - but they are not namedJohn 4 : 2 states that the disciples were NOT baptisedActs 1 : 5 has Jesus telling the discipels that they will be baptized with the Holy GhostThe first baptisms after the death of Jesus are mentioned in Acts 2 : 38 when Peter urged the crowd to be baptized but the verses don't say who did it, ot who the baptized were.Answer:According to Paul... about two million-plus Israelites and who knows how many miscellaneous Gentile escapees exiting Egypt at the first Passover: "... were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea..." (I Cor.10:2).So, if that qualifies as a baptism... perhaps the first person baptized was "NOAH."

Where did Jesus tell the apostles to meet to be baptized with the Holy Spirit?

Acts 1:4, 5 - And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart fromJerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which," He said, "you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now." [NKJV]

Did any of Jesus' disciples see him baptized?

It is doubtful that Jesus baptised disciples personally, although the New Testament points to disciples of Jesus baptising, likely under His supervision. It is also unclear whether anyone baptised by his disciples became disciples themselves. Remember that Jesus had many more disciples in addition to the Twelve who were later promoted to Apostles. A number of Jesus' disciples were originally disciples of his cousin John, the Baptiser, and were almost undoubtedly baptised by John.

Why must Jesus be baptized?

Jesus Christ was baptized in order to do what His Father commanded Him. As the Savior said to John the Baptist, "Suffer it to be so now, for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness" (Matthew 3:15). But why was it necessary?The Savior Jesus Christ was perfect, and so had no need to be baptized for the remission of sins. But baptism is necessary in order to return into the presence of God, " He that beleiveth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned." (Mark 16:16). It shows us the perfect example, that all are needed to enter in at the gate of baptism and receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost.It also shows us a type and shadow of things that will come in the future. Paul identifies this in Romans. " Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life." (Romans 6:3-4)And now, if the Lamb of God who is holy, has need to be baptized with water, how much more do we, being sinners have need to baptized, even in water? He has asked us to follow Him, but how can we follow Him unless we obey the Father? The Father has asked us to all be baptized by His authority. At the time of Jesus, John the Baptist was the only one with authority from God.

Why did jesus get baptised at 30 years old?

I don't believe that is ever explained. The nearest I can come to an answer is that he waited until John the Baptist began to baptise people.... In the King James version, Matthew 3:1 says Mat 3:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, ... there is no other 'introduction' to the baptism. I think it is generally accepted that Jesus 'began' his mission at the Marriage Feast of Cana - which is only recorded in John's Gospel, the only one which makes no mention of his baptism.
