The baptism by John == Davidic Anointment ?

David means "Beloved".

And "you are my Beloved Son" is the voice heard by both Jesus amd John at Jordan.


Hence: "you are my davidic Son".

But we know that Mark denies explicitly in other points that Jesus is davidic.

Hence, the baptism by John, if really it alludes to a Davidic proclamation of Jesus by YHWH himself, has to be an interpolation in Mark.
