Ten days after the ascension of Christ and fifty days after his resurrection, the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples on the day of Pentecost. Pentecost symbolizes a new beginning. It celebrates the unleashing of the Holy Spirit on the world and the empowering of the church to reach the world with the gospel. After the resurrection, God’s kingdom, which had begun to manifest itself in Jesus himself, continues to transform the world through the community of His Spirit-empowered disciples.
