Pentecost was one of three Jewish festivals. The word is derived from the Greek word for "fifty." "Pentecost" was so named because it fell on the fiftieth day after the Sabbath of the Passover. Known also as "the Feast of Weeks," it was the day that the Jews brought to God the firstfruits of their harvest in thanksgiving.

Acts 2: 1-4: "And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place....And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting....and there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them....And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance."
