Pentecost centers the Gospel

Pentecost centers the Gospel

The message of Pentecost is the language of universality, of how the Gospel overcomes the divisiveness of Babel by speaking in a manner that can be understood by every human heart, regardless of race, gender, or spoken language. Throughout the Gospels people comment that no one has ever spoken like Jesus, that he speaks with authority and not like the scribes and Pharisees. It is this same authority that is now passed on to the disciples by the Spirit at Pentecost, whose purpose will be to gather in all of the lost children of Eve in the kingdom of God.
