Why did Jesus not baptize those who came to him?

After his own baptism Jesus spoke with many whom John had baptized and he saw that not all were able to understand the act in its true meaning, for the people often saw more in baptism than intended by John; yes, some even believed that by being baptized they had been cleansed for all time from the taint of sin.

Therefore, Jesus would not baptize; but he did attempt to guide all who came to him, sought to teach them that baptism was but an act of symbolism, no more.
