Baptism of Christ

Baptism of Christ represents the story of Jesus' baptism, by John the Baptist in the river Jordan. This image shows Jesus in white robes, standing waist deep in water with his head down, hands clasped before him. Beside him, John is shown pouring water over Jesus' head. A white dove descends from the sky over Jesus' shoulder, signifying the holy spirit. This Biblical account is known as The Baptism of the Lord.
