OT Window - Abraham and Sarah
and the Three Visitors
The left-most scene shows Abraham and Sarah providing hospitality to three visitors, with Sarah at the tent door. These mysterious visitors brought the presence of God and God’s promise that Sarah would bear a son in her old age (at which, she laughed) (Genesis 18:1-15). This scene has been used in Christian artwork as a symbol of the Holy Trinity.
OT Window - Alpha and Omega
The top three windows represent the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, one God. The Greek letters Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end” Revelation 22:13. These symbols are commonly used as symbols for God; in this case, they signify God the Father.
OT Window - Descending Dove
“And when Jesus had been baptized, just as he came up from the water, suddenly the heavens were opened to him and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him” (Matthew 3:16, also Mark 1:10, Luke 3:22, John 1:32). The Descending Dove window signifies God the Holy Spirit.
