Orthodox Tidbits — Pascha to Pentecost


Pentecost Icon The Pentecostal Period — The word, Pentecost means "the fiftieth" and is used to designate the great event of the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit (Epiphoitesis) upon the Apostles and the Church on the 50th day after the Resurrection of Christ, just ten days after His Ascension into Heaven.

Before His Passion, the Lord spoke to his Disciples about the gift of the Holy Spirit, which they were to receive after the Ascension. The details are preserved in the Gospel of Saint John: "I will ask the Father to send you the Holy Spirit who will defend you and always be with you" (14:16). He also said, "The Holy Spirit can not come to defend you until I leave. But after I am gone, I will send the Spirit to you" (16:7).

Before His Passion, the Lord spoke to his Disciples about the gift of the Holy Spirit, which they were to receive after the Ascension.
