Pentecost is a Jewish holiday that happens 50 days after Passover. Something amazing happened when the disciples of Jesus gathered in Jerusalem on the first Pentecost after Jesus’ resurrection and ascension.
The Holy Spirit came upon them in a new and fresh way. The Spirit shook the house like a mighty wind and descended upon them like tongues of fire.
The disciples were filled with power, courage, and the ability to speak (or be heard) in languages they did not know.
The story is found in Acts 2:1-13.
That’s what happened. But, what does it mean? How does it relate to us today?
