It's roots lie in Levite practice, but it is distinct from John's Baptism in that we are Baptized in the name of the Father, SON and HOLY GHOST. We are now under Christ's administration of the Kingdom and are Baptized as such. The Temple crowd apparently baptized in an exclusive manner. The Essenes, even though an apparent distinct sect separate from the Temple, also were apparently rather exclusive regarding Baptism. John brought Baptism to the Jewish people. Christ brought Baptism to all humanity (with Himself as High Priest and the Holy Spirit to help us).We are not sure you answered the question. Water Baptism for the Remission of Sins is John's Baptism and John is a Levite.
Is the Water Baptism in Christendom, shown in video, for Remission of Sins a Levite Practice?

Short answer....no. We have a new Testament/High Priest and therefore a new Baptism.
