      My point of view :
      ** Baptism was a rite of first christians
      ** It was common to another religious group from which it was inspired (the
      group of John's disciple)
      ** Jesus was at the beginning a follower of John, and had been baptised
      ** The previous fact was known either by christians and John's
      followers, and John's
      followers were using it in a theological way, arguing that John was
      greater than Jesus
      ** Chrristians produced the account of Jesus baptism in order to answer
      ** The whyness is in the christian character given to John (the voice,
      the prophet, etc.)
      ** The whyness is not perfect because the situation was not perfect for
      in their debating with John's followers. Resurection was for them
      a better

      As a corollary, I think, in opposition to Stuart Waugh, that baptism is a
      quite early stage (which look coherent with its large presence in gospels).
