Christ in the Feast of Pentecost

I apologize for getting this post out so late.  I wanted to post it the weekend of June 8/9, on the Day of Pentecost,  but time just didn't permit.  So, I am now posting this a few weeks after Pentecost has passed this year, but nonetheless, the truths regarding this amazing Feast of the Lord…

Finding Jesus in the Passover

If you've read the Bible, I'm sure you're familiar with being called a sheep.  Jesus is the Good Shepherd, and we are the precious sheep he watches over.  Most of us read into this with a simple understanding that a shepherd keeps his flock safe.  He loves and cares for them, keeping them from dangers…
