     How did John water baptize Yahshua? He didn’t baptize Yahshua into “Yahshua’s name” did he?

     Besides knowing that Yahshua was baptized, i.e., submerged, in the Jordan River, the Bible does not state the formula used. However, it was likely not into His own Name, but instead a baptism of repentance. John 19:1-6 confirms that John baptized only unto repentance. Based on the scriptural evidence, the only difference between Yahshua’s baptism and John’s baptism is that Yahshua received the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at His baptism, unlike those who were baptized by John in Acts 19.
