What is Pentecost?

The name "Pentecost" means the fiftieth day after Passover. It was a Jewish feast when people brought the "firstfruits" - the earliest part of the harvest - to the Temple.


Acts 2: 1-13

The disciples were confused. Jesus had been crucified and they'd been in despair. Then he had risen from the dead and they'd been full of joy. They had spent forty days with Jesus, learning from him. Then he had ascended into heaven and they had been told to wait for the Holy Spirit. But what exactly were they waiting for? Would they recognize it when it came?

They noticed all right! Look again at verses 2-4. A rushing wind indoors! Tongues of fire, touching each person, but not burning them. And as if that wasn't enough, suddenly they found they could speak other languages which they hadn't learnt!


. . . God that the Holy Spirit still works today in exciting and dramatic ways. Thank God that the Holy Spirit also works in quiet ways in our lives, too.
