Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4)

Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The image here from Walters manuscript w.106 depicts a scene from the life of Christ. After Christ Ascended into heaven, the day of Pentecost came. All the apostles were sitting in one place, and a sound came from heaven like the rush of mighty wind. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues.
