Sermon 31 May 2020  (Pentecost)

Pentecost is empowerment by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  The Jewish feast of Pentecost celebrated the promise of the Old Covenant, the giving of the law to Moses on Mt. Sinai 50 days after the killing of the Paschal lamb during Passover. In Acts, the promise of the New Covenant came on Pentecost, 50 days after the Resurrection of the Lamb of God. In both cases, God’s descent was primarily for the benefit of those who observed it, not those who experienced it.
