Descends...baptizes...onto Jesus like a Dove
John1:32-34 [also see Matthew 3:13-17, especially verses 16 &
Version...KJV...Bible of 1611
32 And John bare record, saying,
I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
33 And I knew him not: but he
that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit
descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
34 And I saw, and bare record
that this is the Son of God.
32 John testified saying, "I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out
of heaven, and He remained upon Him.
33 I did not recognize Him, but
He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, 'He upon whom you see the Spirit
descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in
the Holy Spirit.' 34 I myself have seen, and have testified
that this is *the Son of God."
32 Then John gave this testimony: "I saw the Spirit come down from heaven
as a dove and remain on him.
33 I would not have known him,
except that the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'The man on whom you see the Spirit
come down and remain is he who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.'
34 I have seen and I testify that
this is the Son of God."
