Question: What did people see descending on Jesus as He was baptized?
The Spirit of God descended on Jesus in the form of a dove at His baptism. It is in Matthew 3:17 the Trinity is present: God the Father declaring "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.", the Holy Spirit was present in the form of a dove and Jesus was present in bodily form. Following Jesus' baptism He was tempted in the desert for forty days in advance of Jesus beginning His earthly ministry we read about the gospels.
Based on Matthew 3:13-17
