The Coming of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-13, Acts 2:14-36)

The coming of the Holy Spirit happened on the day of Pentecost, on the tenth day, after the Ascension of Jesus into heaven.

The Ascension of Jesus refers to the fact that the human Jesus went up into Heaven. We see this in Acts 1 verse 11, two men in white apparel appeared beside them and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.” (NKJV).

Pentecost is the festival when Christians celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. It is celebrated on the 50th Sunday after Easter (the name comes from the Greek pentekoste, “fiftieth”). Pentecost is regarded as the birthday of the Christian church, and the start of the church’s mission to the world.

The apostles were in one accord in the Upper Room, where they had had their last supper with Jesus. They were afraid to go out because of accusations that could be made against them or being killed by Jews.
