Every person has ever heard about it and many people pay special attention to it. Actually, in religion, this day is treated highly and is very important. In the article, we will discuss the history and everything possible about it and know when is Trinity Sunday in 2017.
Let’s begin with history
Usually, the history of different religious holidays goes back to early ages. All traditions and definitions may form for years or even centuries because it all is usually rather difficult. Religion is a hot topic itself and definitions, meanings and facts may be proved or disapproved for several times, people change and everything around them and people’s minds also change with it. That is why attitude towards the holidays also change from bad to good and vice versa.
So, it all began a long time ago. Jesus Christ promised that one day the Saint Spirit will come to them and they all will now about it. People were waiting for a log time and one day it happened: when apostles were meeting in a house together, suddenly they say a bright light and understood what happened. Also, Jesus explained what did it mean – it had to show people that God is tripartite. When it all has been seen, people started to treat that day as a holiday. And by present days people re still interested and count when is Trinity Sunday 2017 and in other years, previously and further too.
Earlier people thought that there was the God – father. Jesus was the son of God, ad when he died, people were extremely disappointed. But he wanted people not to lose their faith and after he died he resurrected, which made people think that God really exists. After the resurrection Jesus rose to heaven but came to the apostles every day and talked to them. After that everybody lived like in a holiday ad thanked God for every day of their life. Every person knew, that God is always there near them and will be able to help at any moment. And the day when Saint Spirit came to Earth, people treated like a miracle and something, which they need to think of with respect and honor. That day was called Pentecost.
Pentecost, which later was renamed into Trinity Sunday got its name not just as is it. Actually, nowadays people use both names, it just depends on a person’s view and taste. But all in all, there is no difference in it. In some countries, there are some other names too. Also, the choice of name may also depend on the type of religion. S, the holiday got its name because it all happened on the fifty’s day after the Easter. And even now in present days, what day Trinity Sunday in 2017 is, is counted beginning from the Easter holiday. Easter itself is counted as the first day.
More interesting facts from history
Historians think that everything, which happened at that time, was made by God for people to accept and understand religion and let faith in their hearts. After Saint Spirit came, the first church was build, where people were taught by apostles how to live correctly, what to do in life, why do they need God and faith and how to pray correctly. Moreover, when it all happened, apostles, who were praying together at that moment inside the building, started speaking different languages, which they haven’t known before. Even those, who were outside and saw the light and fire, thought first, that they were drunk. Also, everybody saw and felt the fire, which came from heaven. But the fire wasn’t hot and haven’t made harm to anybody. It was pleasant and bringing only light to people around.
Many people now and then haven’t understood why is this holiday so important and why is it a holiday itself. But it was a really huge step for religion and people, who really believe because it gave birth to churches. It made people be sure that the God really exists and it gave hope for people, that in difficult situations they can ask for support, either spiritually or morally.
