Pentecost in the New Testament

Pentecost in the New Testament is the celebration of the arrival of the Holy Spirit for the church (Acts 2). At Pentecost the disciples of Jesus were gathered and upon the infilling of the Holy Spirit, they heard a great wind and spoke in tongues as tongues of fire settled upon them. The significance of the fire can be found in recognizing it as a symbol of the indwelling of the Spirit of God (Ex. 19:18; 1 Pet. 4:14). ^DG
