Contextual Overview

29The next day John saw Jesus coming to him, and he said, Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! 30This is the one of whom I said, The man who comes after me is yet ahead of me, because he was before me. 31And I did not know him; but that he might be made known to Israel, I came to baptize with water. 32And John testified and said, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it rested upon him. 33And yet I did not know him; but he who sent me to baptize with water, said to me, The one upon whom you see the Spirit descending and resting, he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit. 34And I saw and testified that this is the Son of God. 35The next day John was standing, with two of his disciples; 36And he looked at Jesus while he walked, and said, Behold, the Lamb of God!

Gill's Notes on the Bible

And John bare record,.... The same day that he said the above things, and at the same time:

saying, I saw the Spirit; that is, of God, as is said in Matthew 3:16 and which Nonnus here expresses; and the Ethiopic version reads, "the Holy Ghost",

descending from heaven like a dove; at the time of his baptism; see Gill on Matthew 3:16.

And it abode upon him; for some time; so long as that John had a full sight of it, and so was capable of giving a perfect account of it, and bearing a certain and distinct testimony to it.

I saw the Spirit … - See the notes at Matthew 3:16-17.
