Pentecost Icon Explained

This feast is of great importance as it marks the coming of the Holy Spirit. On the Ascension we focused on an icon from the Rabulla Gospels. The Gospels were with the Maronites since the 6th Century. They are one of the oldest surviving biblical manuscripts and are based on the Syriac Peshita version of the Gospel. They also contain this icon of Pentecost.
