Anticipating the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost (June 12th this year), our Church School curriculum has been sharing the stories of Peter, Paul and the community of Christians formed immediately after Jesus’ death, resurrection and ascension.
On the Day of Pentecost the Christian Church celebrates the gift of God’s Holy Spirit given to God’s holy people. Pentecost is also the Greek name for the Jewish Feast of Weeks, celebrated 50 days after Passover. On this feast, the first fruits of the wheat harvest were presented, and the covenant made with God at Mount Sinai was remembered and renewed.
