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.
