The mode was IMMERSION, and baptism normally coincided with the reception of the Holy Spirit.
This metaphor reveals Jesus as God.
The first five of those appearances occurred on the day of his resurrection, and the other five later, during the interval before his ascension.
Peter knew that he would have no legitimate successor and indicated it in 2 Peter 1:13-15 where he WROTE the word of God in order for it to be available, as he said, “after my decease”! If a successor had been contemplated, that would have been unnecessary.
This promise, emphatically delivered to Peter here, was also the property of the Twelve and not Peter’s exclusively. All of the apostles, not merely Peter alone, were included in this promise. Matthew 16 & 18
Having determined that Jesus was not the type of Messiah they wanted, the priestly leaders of the people exhausted their resources of cunning and deceit in an all-out campaign to convince the people that Jesus was not the Christ. Luke 9 – Matthew 16

Jesus has already won the war, it’s over, and every man and woman should repent, and be baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Christ will return!
The Judgment Day will arrive!
Get right with God.
He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Mark 16:16 RSV
