“Disciples” means “Learners”

Pentecost is the day that the Holy Spirit came.

After the Ascension of Jesus the apostles went to Jerusalem, for Jesus had told them to wait for God’s Helper to come.

“4 Being assembled together with them, he commanded them, “Don’t depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which you heard from me. 5 For John indeed baptized in water, but you will be baptized in the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”

“7 He said to them, “It isn’t for you to know times or seasons which the Father has set within his own authority. 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you. You will be witnesses to me in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.”

Acts 1:4-5 & 7-8

During the time that they waited for the Holy Spirit, they appointed a new Apostle to take Judas’ place. (The Bible has two different accounts on how he had died. Matthew says that Judas had committed suicide by hanging when he found out what happened to Jesus. While Acts says that he bought a field with the money and died a gruesome death by falling and his stomach busting open.)  They nominated 2 men.

“23 They put forward two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also called Justus, and Matthias.”

Acts 1:23

They drew lots and put it in God’s hands. The lot fell on Matthias. He became the 12th apostle in Judas’ place. When the day arrived for the Holy Spirit to come, the sky grew dark and fire “tongues” appeared for each of the disciples. They spoke in many languages and were filled with the Spirit. Many Gentiles were there when The Helper (as it is sometimes referred to) came. The Gentiles heard the Apostles speaking in their own language and were mystified. They asked themselves how could it be? Peter spoke to them all and told them to repent and be baptized. If they repented and followed Jesus then they could also have the Holy Spirit come into their lives and be made new. Almost 3,000 people were baptized and became followers!

The Church did not start in a building. It was mostly groups of people meeting in homes to talk about Jesus and God. They helped many people to Christianity just by following the rules and things that Jesus told them to. It is an amazing thing what has happened. The Faith has grown from a few hundred to the most practiced religion in the world!

A large part of our Walk with Christ is prayer. Praying to God can be done any time of the day. You can pray with your eyes open and while you are doing things. Driving, cooking, walking, and before you sleep. Those are just a few examples.

Jesus instructed us to care for the sick, widows, and orphans. Helping at homeless ministries, foster and adoptive care, and helping sick people are all ways to help in the ways that Jesus wants.

Christians should also minister to the “Lost”. The Lost are people who do not believe in God and Jesus. They are not gone forever, just lost because they have not been found yet. Jesus welcomes everyone to have Eternal Life!

The most influential religion in Europe and Western culture is Christianity. Even people who do not believe in Jesus use His parables in life.

Reading The Book of Acts is a better insight into the religion’s start than my essay.

Let me know of Errors.
