The Cure to Fatherlessness, Widows, Orphans and Oppression John 3:21-22 records Jesus’ baptism in a manner that’s helpful in understanding our own identities: “when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heavens were opened, and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form, like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, ‘You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.’” Interestingly enough, right after Jesus...
