Christ was baptized for our sake, in order to sanctify the waters. The Spirit descended in the form of a dove, because wherever there is reconciliation with God there is a dove, like in the case of Noah’s ark … announcing God’s mercy to the world and at the same time making clear that what is spiritual should be meek and without wickedness, simple and without guile. (Origen)
