"LET FIRE FALL"
Rev. Rob Wilson
May 24, 2015
Pentecost was a Jewish festival that happened during the Feast of First Fruits. It happened 50 days after Passover, and celebrated Israel's deliverance from Egypt. Pentecost was a time to celebrate the initial harvest feast.
Pentecost is now celebrated on the Jewish calendar as Shavuot, a festival marking the Law being given by God to Moses on Mount Sinai.
Pentecost has now become a Christian festival that commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles, or the day on which it is celebrated.
