The Trinity: “And Jesus, when he was baptized went up straightway out of the water : and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him. And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (Matthew 3:16-17).
