I see the cleansing by water of the sacrifice, much like was done by Aaron when Aaron washed the kidney and liver of the sacrifice. Also, the manifestation of fire in that Christ, the one being baptized would then be a consuming fire, baptizing with fire, much like the Levitical burnt offerings for sin. Also, the spirit coming down like a dove reminds me of the doves sacrificed on the altar. It all has this mysterious symbolism that comes from Heaven, because it is an exact representation of what is in Heaven that is "secret". Our redemption is beautiful and it is by God. His ways are not our ways, nor are his thoughts our thoughts. For as high as the Heavens are above the Earth, so are His ways above our ways.
