A CHRISTIAN CARTOON RESOURCE - by Jeff Larson
PENTECOST SUNDAY (5/19/2013)
As a Christian cartoonist I can't say I have 'tooned' much about Pentecost. I think it is not a good idea for me to cartoon pentecost as it is the start of the Christian church. I would not want to do anything appears disrespectful to this very important day.I will of course share a few smriky moments of man today in our pursuit of our God, but please note that no Baptists, Pentecostals, or Lutherans were harmed in the making of these toons. Along with these few toons, let me share.. 10 things you should know about Pentecost Sunday. (I gleaned this from Christian Post.com)
1. Pentecost Sunday marks the day when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles.
2. Pentecost Sunday occurs 50 days after Easter.
3. The Bible records the Pentecost in Acts 2:1-13.
4. Pentecost comes 10 days after the Ascension of Jesus Christ.
5. Pentecost is also known as "the birthday of the Church"
6. Pentecost fulfills Jesus' promise to send the "Counselor" and "Spirit of Truth" in John 16-5-15.
7. Pentecost launches the large-scale spreading of the Gospel after Jesus' ascension. Acts 2:41 records that after Peter spoke to the crowd after receiving the Holy Spirit, some 3,000 people were baptized.
8. The Pentecostal movement derives its name from the New Testament event in Acts 2.
9. Jews also celebrate Pentecost, but not for the same reason as Christians. The celebration by Jews of Pentecost is to observe God giving the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai 50 days after the Exodus. The Pentecost in Jewish tradition takes place 50 days after Passover.
10. In Western Churches, Pentecost is usually represented with the color red, which symbolizes the fire of the Holy Spirit.May God bless and use each of you this day with the assurance of the Holy Spirit as our comforter. May our words and deeds be led by His Spirit and honoring of the one true God.
