Jesus never met John the Baptist - What you didn't know


Accounts in the gospels that mention the baptism of Jesus:

”And it came to pass in those days,  that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.”
“And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:”
“And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
Mark 1:9-11 KJV also Matthew 3:16:-17 records a similar account.


”But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,”
Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.”
”Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,”
And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven”  Luke 3:19-22 KJV

How could John baptise Jesus if John was in prison (John was not released and died in prison). If Jesus was sinless (as the Christians are taught) why did he need to be baptised?

John had never met Jesus and sent his disciples to enquire if Jesus was the Messiah. When John the Baptist was imprisoned, he never left the prison, he was executed by decapitation. Two accounts prove that he never met Jesus and sent his disciples to enquire. 80

”And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?”
”When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?
”And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.”
Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached Luke 7:18-22 KJV also the same account in Matthew 11:2-5
