    Anyone can get baptized, can't they? The Jews got water baptized to declare their belief that Jesus was the Christ (Messiah).

    Acts 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

    Did Jesus need that? Of course not, but He allowed John to baptize Him to show He was the Messiah. The Holy Spirit descending on Him afterward was the anointing.

    Matthew 3:16-17
    16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
    17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

    The water didn't represent the Spirit which is what you hope to prove, isn't it?

    Jesus didn't require any washing or repentance or life....He was already the source of life.
