9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.
10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:
11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Mark 1:9-11 KJV
When Christ emerged from Jordan full of love
The Heavens opened wide and He did see
Descending from the sky just like a dove
The Spirit came upon Him graciously.
Then God did say “You’re My Beloved Son,
In whom I AM,” He stated “so well pleased,”
And there the essence of the Holy One
Well marked His favor on the One appeased.
Beloved sister, now that Spirit’s Here!
O, my Beloved brother, He’s in you!
When you accepted Christ your Savior dear
You were baptized by Spirit through and through.
One day when you see Jesus face to face,
He’ll say God’s pleased with you with love and grace.

Reblogged this on jaytharding.
We just studied several perspectives of this occasion in BIBLE study recently. The surrealist photo really allows me to think about JESUS being baptized in my mind’s eye.
That is exactly what attracted me to that painting.
