What is Pentecost?
Pentecost is celebrated by Christians around the world. It is the day that the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ; they were assembled in the Upper Room in Jerusalem as instructed by Jesus before his ascension to Heaven (Luke 22:11-12). Pentecost is celebrated on the 50th day after Easter.
1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Acts 2:1-4 (King James Version)
