The term means “the fiftieth day.” It is used in both the OT and the NT. In the OT it refers to a feast of seven weeks known as the Feast of Weeks. We celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit, which is the very presence of God within and among us. The story of Pentecost appears in Acts 2 as the disciples were gathered for the Jewish festival of Pentecost, 50 days after Passover. The Holy Spirit came among them, and “They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them” (Acts 2:3).
