Since the Bible says that, after Jesus was baptized, He came up out of the water (indicating to me that he had been completely in the Jordan River) -- coupled with the fact that the purpose of the imagery of baptism is to symbolize death, burial, and resurrection or rebirth (as represented by the immersion and subsequent raising of the person being baptized) -- I would take that as an indication that Jesus' baptism would have involved immersion, rather than some alternate possible applications of the water, such as pouring or sprinkling.
