Matthew 3:16-17

Because we had stake conference last week, we're probably a week behind in Sunday School lessons, but oh well. This one is from lesson 4. I really like the way this scripture reads when we think of God as a couple and as parents together.

16 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 and Goddess descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is our beloved Son, in whom We are well pleased.

I think this is my favourite so far :)

I highly recommend reading Ryan Thomas's article in the most recent Exponent issue (Winter 2010). He makes the case that the dove that descended was not the Father and the Mother, but solely, the Mother. Seriously. Read it. It may just change your life.
