Day of Pentecost Announcements

The Day of Pentecost According to Scripture:

The 11 remaining Apostles returned to Jerusalem after the Ascension of Jesus into Heaven. Acts 1:14 says, “All these with one accord devoted themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.” During this time, the Apostles chose a replacement for Judas Iscariot. They cast lots between two men, and the lot fell on Matthias.

After nine days of prayer, the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples. They heard a sound like a “mighty wind,” and “tongues as of fire” were resting on their heads. They rushed into the street praising God in many languages.

Peter spoke to the crowd that had gathered. Even though he had denied Christ three times just a few weeks earlier, Peter courageously proclaimed the Gospel. That day, three thousand people believed in Christ and were received into His Church. 

Luke describes the setting of the descent of the Holy Spirit as “the day when Pentecost had come” (Acts 2:1). This Fiftieth Day (“pentekoste”) was for Israel a spring harvest feast ending the days of celebration after Passover. It was also a celebration of the giving of the Law on Mount Sinai. 

For Christians, it remains the “fiftieth day,” but after Jesus’ Passion, Death and Resurrection, and the celebration of the Gift of the Holy Spirit.
