The symbol of the dove and Jesus’ emerging from the waters, soon to reenter the land possibly conjure up the old stories of Noah’s flood and Israel’s exodus from Egypt and its eventual crossing over the Jordan into the Promised Land.¬† God is about to do something of extraordinary significance in salvation-history.
