    based on 105 ratings

    The Book of Acts records two great "Pentecostal" experiences in the early church. But often, throughout church history, many personal “Pentecosts” have occurred.

    based on 49 ratings

They also took Jesus with them “according to the custom of the feast” (Luke 2:42). Habits set in youth more
