Pentecost - The Descent of the Holy Spirit
The word "Pentecost" stems originally from Ancient Greek and means "fiftieth day". It refers to the celebration of the descent of the Holy Spirit, also called the sending or pouring of the Holy Spirit. This is celebrated on the fiftieth day of the Easter cycle, so on the 49th day following Easter Sunday. This festival reaches back to an Act from the Apostles in the New Testament which tells us that the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles and disciples as they gathered for the Jewish celebration of Shavuot ("The Feast of Weeks") in Jerusalem. In Christianity, this date is also regarded as the foundation of the Church. The celebration of Pentecost in this way was first mentioned in 130 AD.
