Baptism was not about Forgiveness of Sins
When Jesus was baptized, he repented of no misdeeds; he made no confession of sin. His was the baptism of consecration to the performance of the will of the heavenly Father. At his baptism he heard the unmistakable call of his Father, the final summons to be about his Father‘s business, and he went away into private seclusion for forty days to think over these manifold problems. This day of baptism ended the purely human life of Jesus. The divine Son has found his Father, the Universal Father has found his incarnated Son, and they speak the one to the other. Jesus was almost thirty-one and one-half years old when he was baptized.
