This feast is the insurance policy for the Bride of Christ
Pentecost is not just a feast in remembrance of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Jerusalem, but it is also a feast that helps us to be expectant about the future. It holds a promise.
The feast of Pentecost is connected with the ancient Hebrew wedding ritual. In essence, this earthly wedding ceremony – in its original form – is a shadow of a heavenly blueprint of the covenant between the heavenly Bridegroom and the earthly Bride . Paul compares the community of followers of Christ also with a bride.
