Pentecost and Whitsun Olive Wood Collection | Bethlehem Handicrafts
The Christian festival of Pentecost, also known as Whitsun, Whitsunday, or Whit Sunday in the UK, is a Christian liturgical holiday and season.
It's the 50th day after Easter (and the 10th day after Ascension day) which is why it's called Pentecost. It comes from the Greek word for “fiftieth” (pentecoste).
It commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks as Jesus had promised after he rose from the dead.
About 3,000 believers were baptized on that day, which many consider to be the true beginning of the Christian Church.
Here are some of our hand-carved olive wood products that you can find on our olive wood store that are related to the Christian festival of Pentecost and the Holy Spirit:
