Eastertide

The season of Eastertide is defined as the period from Easter to Pentecost Sunday (May 31, 2020). It is the time when Christians strive to understand the full meaning of Easter, what it means to be part of the body of Christ, and to begin to take their place as ministers in Christ’s name and in the power of the Holy Spirit who has given each gifts for ministry.

Pentecost Sunday

 
Pentecost Sunday, we remember the day the disciples received the Holy Spirit in a special way. The story in Acts 2 describes a powerful wind and tongues of fire as the Holy Spirit was poured out on people from all over the world who came to Jerusalem to celebrate a Jewish feast. At the first Pentecost over 3000 people were baptized, creating the first church. This is why Pentecost is known as the birthday of the Christian church.
 
The word Pentecost comes from a Greek word meaning fiftieth. The Jewish Festival of Pentecost (called Shavuot, meaning “weeks” in Hebrew) falls on the fiftieth day after the original Passover. On that day, God gave the Torah to Moses on Mount Sinai. The Christian festival of Pentecost falls on the 50th day after the resurrection of Jesus.
