Ahh, yes - the classic scene where John baptizes Jesus, shortly after tying a serpent into a knot and enlisting the aid of an angel to fly above with a pitcher of water ready to pour it over Jesus' head, since the river was actually too shallow for a proper baptism, all while a friendly bluebird serenades them sweetly.

Also apparently the sun was blue that day. Either that or an inflatable yoga ball is being thrown at them from out of scene, probably by that wily rascal Judas.
