Descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles
“And suddenly there came from heaven a sound as of the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them tongues parting asunder, like as of fire; and it sat upon each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:2-4 ASV
Illustration of the apostles as the Holy Spirit descends upon them in the form of tongues of fire. Tiny flames float above their heads. A dove emanating light is at the top of the image. A large book sits on the left side of the image.
