    Were Did Pentecost Happen ?
    Historically, Pentecost (Shavout) is a Jewish feast celebrating the giving of the Torah and the summer wheat harvest. It was celebrated 50 days after
    Passover and was marked by pilgrims coming to Jerusalem from all over
    the world to celebrate the event. The Day of Pentecost is celebrated 50
    days after Easter in Western branches of Christianity.

    What Happens First Of All ?
    The first Pentecost Pentecost comes from a Jewish harvest festival called
    Shavuot. The apostles were celebrating this festival when the Holy Spirit
    descended on them. It sounded like a very strong wind, and it looked like
    tongues of fire.

    Who Was Involved In Pentecost ?
    About 40 days after the resurrection of Jesus, the 12 apostles and other
    early followers were gathered together in a house in Jerusalem
    celebrate the traditional Jewish Pentecost. Also present were Jesus’
    mother, Mary, and other female followers.

    What Happens Next In Pentecost ?
    One Pentecost, after Jesus died, the disciples were given the Holy Spirit: On
    the day called Pentecost, the disciples were all together, in one place. Immediately, there was a sound from heaven. It seemed as if a very strong
    wind was blowing.
    What Happens At The End Of Pentecost ?
    The Day of Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Easter in Western
    branches of Christianity. Church services on this day are marked by red
    robes and banners signifying the fiery winds of the Holy Spirit. Red flowers
    may adorn alters and other areas. In Eastern branches of Christianity, the
    Day of Pentecost is one of the Great Feasts.
