The Bible doesn't say how old Jesus was when He was baptized. We believe he was baptized at the beginning of His public ministry. Tradition has said that he was 33 when he died, so I am guessing he was 29 to 30 when He was baptized by John the Baptist in the Jordan River.

In answering this question, Luke 3:23 (NKJV), tells us that "Now Jesus Himself began His ministry at about 30 years of age being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph...." And when one follows the story of Jesus after being baptized you read about him doing his preaching to vast followings and crowds. It is from many years of church tradition and many sermons from my past 52 years of hearing God's Word preached and church tradition that His ministry was about 3 years which would put Him at about age 33 when He was crucified on that cruel, wicked cross! It is prudent to state that Jesus began His preaching right after being baptized by John in the river Jordan! This is my best answer! --Andy--
