Baptism of the Lord (C08)

Luke 3:15-17, 21-22

Proud Papa

[...] Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove.

And a voice came from heaven, "You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased."

According to Howard Clark Kee, one of the authors of the Interpreter's Commentary on the Bible, the old testament tradition interpreted the dove as a symbol of God's Spirit hovering over creation (Gen 1:2) and caring for His people in the wilderness (Duet 32:11). Knowing this, one might get the impression that we have a compassionate God. Jesus certainly seems to reinforce this relationship in his teachings and actions.
