    Lu 1:43 Joh 13:6-8

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:14

    Mas Juan lo resistía mucho, diciendo: Yo necesito ser bautizado de ti, ¿y t vienes a mí?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 3:14

    Verse 14. John forbad him] Earnestly and pressingly opposed him: this is the proper import of the
    words diekwleuen auton. I have observed that dia, in composition, most frequently, if not always, strengthens the signification in classic authors. -Wakefield.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. But John forbad him, saying , etc.] It appears from hence, that John knew
    Christ before he baptized him, and before he saw the Spirit descending and abiding on him, ( John 1:33) wherefore that was not a signal, whereby he should first know him but whereby his knowledge of him should be confirmed; which knowledge of him he had, not through his kindred to him, or by any conversation he had with him before, but by immediate, divine revelation: upon which account he forbad him; refused to administer the ordinance to him; earnestly entreated that he would not insist upon it; desired to be excused being concerned herein: and this he did, partly lest the people should think Christ was not so great a person as he had represented him to be; yea, that he was one of the penitent sinners John had admitted to his baptism; and chiefly because of the majesty and dignity of Christs person, who he knew stood in no need of such an outward ordinance; and because of his own unworthiness to administer it to him, as is evident from what follows, I have need to be baptized of thee ; not with water baptism, which Christ never administered, but with the baptism of the Spirit, which was his peculiar office. Hence we learn, that though John was so holy a man, was filled with the Holy Ghost from his mothers womb, had such large measures of grace, and lived such an exemplary life and conversation; yet was far from thinking, that he was perfect and righteous in himself, but stood in need of Christ, and of more grace from him. He seems surprised that Christ should come to him, and make such a motion to him; when it was his duty and privilege to come to him daily for fresh supplies of grace, and always to trust in him for life and salvation; and comest thou to me ? who am of the earth, earthly, when thou art the Lord from heaven; to me, a poor sinful creature, when thou art the Holy One of God; to me, who am thy servant, when thou art Lord of all; to me, who always stand in need of thy grace, when thou art God all sufficient.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 13-17 -
    Christ's gracious condescensions are so surprising, that even the strongest believers at first can hardly believe them; so deep an mysterious, that even those who know his mind well, are apt to star objections against the will of Christ. And those who have much of the Spirit of God while here, see that they need to apply to Christ for more. Christ does not deny that John had need to be baptized of him yet declares he will now be baptized of John. Christ is now in a stat of humiliation. Our Lord Jesus looked upon it as well becoming him to fulfil all righteousness, to own every Divine institution, and to sho his readiness to comply with all God's righteous precepts. In an through Christ, the heavens are opened to the children of men. Thi descent of the Spirit upon Christ, showed that he was endued with his sacred influences without measure. The fruit of the Spirit is love joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness temperance. At Christ's baptism there was a manifestation of the thre Persons in the sacred Trinity. The Father confirming the Son to be Mediator; the Son solemnly entering upon the work; the Holy Spiri descending on him, to be through his mediation communicated to his people. In Him our spiritual sacrifices are acceptable, for He is the altar that sanctifies every gift, 1Pe 2:5. Out of Christ, God is consuming fire, but in Christ, a reconciled Father. This is the sum of the gospel, which we must by faith cheerfully embrace __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    14. Forbad (diekwluen). The A.V., following Wyc. and Tynd., misses the meaning of the verb. As in so many instances, it overlooks the force of the imperfect tense, which expresses past action, either in progress or in process of conception, in the agent's
    mind. John did not forbid Jesus, but had it in mind to prevent him: was for hindering him. Hence Rev., properly, would have hindered him. Again, the preposition (dia) intensifies the verb, and represents strong feeling on John's part. He was moved to strenuous protest against Jesus' baptism by him.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:14 {Would have
    hindered} (diekwluen). Rather "tried to prevent" as Moffatt has it. It is the conative imperfect. The two men of destiny are face to face for the first time apparently. The Coming One stands before John and he recognizes him before the promised sign is given.
