The history and meaning of the holiday
Each and every great holiday has a corresponding event in the Bible. As for the Trinity, this is the descent of the Holy Spirit. By the way, this is what they call this holiday.
The third name is Pentecost. This naming is also quite natural, because according to the church rules, the Trinity is celebrated on the fiftieth day after Easter.
The descent of the Spirit from Heaven was foretold by Jesus himself. What he was talking about happened. Something that he did not predict for some reason happened — the apostles, who were watching the descent of the Holy Spirit, received the gift of predicting the future and healing.
A well-known fact is that all the disciples of Christ began to speak in other languages after the descent of the Holy Spirit, which enabled them to carry the Word of God to different nations.
The apostles observed the prayer rule for 50 days after the miraculous Resurrection of the Lord. They waited for the appearance of the Holy Spirit and waited. It was they who first of all established this ancient holiday, which became an official Christian holiday only by the end of the 4th century.
Orthodox people began to celebrate the Trinity only in the 14th century. Despite this, the holiday immediately became very respected and desirable, because people in Russia have always been distinguished by piety.
