Jesus said unto his disciples, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in
Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
(Acts 1:8 NASB)
“When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house … and appeared as tongues of fire resting on each one. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 2:1-4, NASB)
Pentecost Sunday is the day that the Holy Spirit descended upon the disciples of Jesus. Pentecost is the Greek name for Shavuot, the spring harvest festival of the Israelites, which was going on when the Holy Spirit came. It is celebrated on the 50th day after Easter inclusive of Easter Sunday.
