Why did Jesus need to be baptized by John?
Matthew 3:4-17

1. The purpose of John the Baptist's  baptism was to provide a moment for the Israelites to repent and turn back from their sins. This new people will be gathered not on the basis of their race but by repentance and faith.

2. John the Baptist made it vivid that his baptism of repentance is a sign that these men belongs to God and being prepared for the coming Messiah. 
Christ mission to the world is to make many to be counted righteous on the basis of faith. -Isaiah 53:11
Baptism is a righteous action by Jesus so he identified with fallen men for whom He died by providing His righteousness by sharing their baptism.
