The Christian holiday of Pentecost is celebrated on the 50th day after Easter. Pentecost is a Greek word that means fifty. Through Jesus’s resurrection on Easter he gives us a gift from his father. On the day of Pentecost God descended his Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and caused them the speak in different languages. This was a turning point in the early Christian churches for the Trinity came to life as the three persons of God: The Father, the Son, and the Holy spirit. God’s new covenant. The Holy Spirit is given to all those who are baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. It is the spirit of God that brings us to embrace the world as it really is.

The Jewish identify this spirit as “Ruach Hakodesh”, it means the holy breath of God. There are many names written in Sacred Scripture that describe God’s Spirit including the spirit of YHWH, spirit of Wisdom, the spirit of the LORD, the Spirit of Christ, the spirit of truth, the Helper, Teacher, Breath and Logos.
