On the Shavuot / Pentecost of 33 C.E. amazing events unfolded in Jerusalem. The Holy Spirit filled the talmidim of Y’shua and they all began speaking in other tongues – languages they had never learned to speak. The purpose of this startling gift of the Spirit was to empower those first disciples to communicate with Israelites from every corner of the known world who spoke all of those different native languages and who had traveled to Jerusalem to observe Shavuot there. Those travelers were in awe to hear the good news about Y’shua the Messiah spoken to them each in his own native language by simple country folk from Galilee! Not only that, but they had earlier witnessed unusual signs in the heavens and earth testifying to them of things they did not yet understand. As they wondered at these miracles Peter / Kefa and the rest of the Emissaries boldly explained to them from the prophecies of Joel and David how these signs bore divine witness to Y’shua the Nazarean whom their nation had offered up to be killed, but who had defeated death and sat at the right hand of God in Heaven! Why was all this happening THEN? They were living in the LAST DAYS! In this program you will learn what all of this meant in those last days – and what it means for these last days in which we NOW live.
A key element of replacement theology holds that the new “Christian Religion” was born on the “Pentecost” of Acts Chapter Two. In this program we de-bunk that myth by investigating what Pentecost was really all about. In the process we discuss the connection between Shavuot, Passover, Unleavened Bread, the Waiving of the Omer, the Counting of the Omer, the First Fruits Offering, the Giving of the Covenant at Sinai and the Renewed Covenant at Pentecost of Acts Two. Through this discussion we will find that the believers did not start a new religion on Pentecost. Instead we find that the Remnant of Faithful Israel were renewed in the Covenant as the Holy Nation of YHWH on that very special day! You will find this to be a very timely program which explains details of the real meaning of this season on the Torah Calendar.
