As our church continues to read the book of Acts, the second chapter highlights the day of Pentecost. The author of Acts, Luke, assumes his readers are familiar with the holy-day/holiday. He, therefore, doesn’t explicitly tease out what Jesus sending the Holy Spirit on his people that day (of all days) means. If you skip over Pentecost you miss a lot of color within the text’s story that the wording itself doesn’t always supply. Here are four blogs surveying some of the meaning behind that day and what’s going on in Acts 2.
Part 1: What Pentecost says about Redemptive History
Part 2: What Pentecost says about Jesus
Part 3: What Pentecost says about the Holy Spirit
Part 4: What Pentecost says about the Church
