Baptism of the Lord

The baptism of Christ (Joachim Patenier, first half of 16th century, Kunsthistorisches Museum, Wien)
Mt 3:16-17

After Jesus was baptized, he came up from the water and behold, the heavens were opened (for him), and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove (and) coming upon him. And a voice came from the heavens, saying, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.".
