Christ’s Ascension and The Day of Pentecost

Question: How Many Days Were There Between Jesus’ Ascension And The Pentecost?

Answer: There were 10 days between His ascension and Pentecost. How do we know this? Jesus arose from the dead on the Feast of Firstfruits. A “wave offering” was made on this day (Leviticus 23:9-10). The Feast of Weeks, also known as Pentecost (from the Greek word “Pentekoste” meaning fiftieth) began 50 days after the wave offering (Leviticus 23:15-16)(Deuteronomy 16:9-10). Jesus was on the Earth for 40 days before His ascension (Acts 1:3). Therefore, 50-40= 10 days.
