What did the Holy Spirit do at Pentecost?
Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the Holy Spirit's role in the story of Pentecost?
The Holy Spirit's third function is vital in both resisting the temptation to sin and also the conviction of sin, once it has been committed. God is holy and righteous and man is prideful and deceitful, so the Holy Spirit's role in keeping followers of Christ righteous through their faith in Christ is paramount.
Beside above, what was Pentecost before the Holy Spirit? The Jewish feast of Pentecost (Shavuot) was primarily a thanksgiving for the firstfruits of the wheat harvest, but it was later associated with a remembrance of the Law given by God to Moses on Mount Sinai. Baptism was administered both at the beginning (Easter) and end (the day of Pentecost) of the Paschal season.
Also, who was filled with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost?
The Christian holy day of Pentecost, which is celebrated fifty days after Easter Sunday, commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks, as described in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:1–31).
What did the Holy Spirit give to the disciples?
"With great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all." Acts 4:33. To all who have accepted Christ as a personal Saviour, the Holy Spirit has come as a counselor, sanctifier, guide, and witness.
