2. Pentecost Showcases the Trinity. Christian theology is grounded in a doctrine of three in one, the Holy Trinity: often described as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Pentecost was a big Trinity moment! The Father sends the Spirit to make the Son present. On Pentecost we can teach and celebrate the Trinity. 3 In 1974 the Worldwide Church of God changed its teaching on which day to observe Pentecost-from Monday to Sunday.

In spite of what may have been stated in the past, it does not say to count 49 days and keep the 50th day implication that the church is spiritual Israel (Rom. 2:28-29, Rom. 9:6-8), including Gal. 6:16, which seems to refer to the church as the Israel of God. Though dispensational commentators dispute this interpretation, it seems much the most natural. Another image that pictures the unity of the church and Israel is that of the olive tree
