Jesus immersed in the waters of the Jordan River, waiting to receive the holy water that descends from the hand suspended over his head. The dove in flight represents the Christian symbol of the Holy Spirit descending upon Him. Behind the dove a halo can be glimpsed, another symbol linked to the Most Holy Trinity. Jesus was baptized by the prophet John the Baptist, his first apostle. The word “baptism” comes from the Greek and means “to immerse in water.”
