Dear friend of St. Athanasius Academy:
Pentecost: Sending the Holy Spirit
- The Fulfillment of Promise First Revealed in His Baptism -
Matthew 3:16 - 4:1 When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. 17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." 4:1 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.
John 7:39 But this He spoke, concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was yet glorified. John 14:26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
