The 12 Disciples
Ressurection and Post Ressurection
- Jesus resurrection is in the book of Acts. On the Sunday following his execution, Jesus' followers went to his tomb and discovered that his body was gone. Jesus appeared to them alive and his followers believed that God had raised Jesus from the dead (BBC).
- During the festival of Shavuot or Pentecost, it is believed that Peter, one of Jesus' disciples, stood up and preached the first christian sermon (Patheos). This is also believed to be the birth of the Christian Church.
Artistic interpretation of the Books of Acts, "Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them" (Acts 2: 2-3) Image Source: https://lh4.ggpht.com/kkbqgTzjGccM6pYYKn8oKrFJSUvo7EONi0tjOE0ovCbgbiSRVnxzJn0Wkaf3DR9nCUuIZw=s144
