I spoke to my associate pastor at last night's Bible Study about the coming of the Holy Spirit. He explained to me that the 12 disciples had it BEFORE Pentecost. He told me that on Pentecost, the Holy Spirit was given to the WHOLE CHURCH. It puzzles me because in reading the scripture, Jesus promised the disciples that THEY would receive the Holy Spirit which I thought occurred on Pentecost. What do think the Bible tells us? Thanks everyone.
