THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Pentecost coincided with the Feast of Weeks which became one of the
pilgrimage Feasts for people of God in the Old Testament. It celebrated
the granting of the Law by God to Moses on Mount Sinai. When God first
communicated the Law to Moses there were extraordinary manifestations of
God’s appearance of Theophany. Moses led the people out of the camp to
meet God. Mount Sinai was entirely wrapped in smoke, because Yahweh had
descended on it in the form of fire. The smoke rose like smoke from a
furnace and the whole mountain shook violently." This is an account of a
powerful Theophany where the features of noise, smoke, cloud and fire
are prominent features.
The Apostles were gathered in a room w hen God made his presence
felt. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in
foreign language as the Spirit gave them the gift of speech." The
Apostles had their experience of Theophany. It brings about an immediate
transformation. Immediately they take on the role of prophets
proclaiming the word of God to the many nationalities gathered in
Jerusalem for the feast. The Spirit manifests himself in various ways in
the New Testament.
In the Gospel reading w e meet a very different view of the Holy
Spirit. He is the Spirit of Truth and will give internal witness to
Jesus and his Father and enable us to give witness to the Truth. As the
spirit of truth he will lead us to the complete truth." He will enable
us to interpret and assimilate the truth about God that Jesus reveals to
us, make it our own, and make it part of our thinking and spiritual
