Pentecost and Temple Judaism

When we think about Pentecost, we are looking back at it from our modern Christian perspective. How might the Apostles themselves have experienced it? On this episode of Theologically Thinking, Fr. Demetrios Tonias speaks with us about Pentecost and the church as it was before and after this spiritual watershed. He explains what the religious life of the Apostles might have been like up to that point and how extraordinary the descent of the Holy Spirit would have been for them in their own context.

Rev. Dr. Demetrios Tonias is the priest of Taxiarchae/Archangels Greek Orthodox Church in Watertown, Massachusetts.
