We simply do not know.
We can assume that the twelve were there (the 11 original disciples and Matthias who replaced Judas Iscariot after his suicide), but in addition to these it is most likely that other followers of Jesus were there too. These would have included those who were present at his crucifixion (eg Mary, his mother and Mary Magdalene and Salome, as well as others) and probably other followers such as Cleopas and his friend (thetwo men the resurrected Jesus appeared to on the road to Emmaus), John Mark, Lazarus, Mary and Marha from Bethany, Joseph of Arimathea and possibly Nicodemus too. However as to actual numbers nowhere in scripture does it tell us this - only that 'all' the believers were assembled.
Actually there were just shy of 120.
13And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.
14These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.
15And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty.
The Holy Spirit came on Pentecost. Pentecost is 50 days after Easter. It could be inferred that it was less than 50 days, but this answer too is suspect, since it is based on our Western Calendars.
ANSWER I don't believe the disciples stayed in the upper room 24/7. But Pentecost is 50 days after the Passover. Jesus was crucified on the Passover, arose and was on earth 40 days before He accented. Pentecost occurred 10 days later.
Second thought: Christ was in the grave 3 days and then was seen for 40 days. Possibly Pentecost occurred 7 days later. IE 40+3= 43. 43 from 50=7. Good question!
50 days is not correct.
They were in the upper room 7 days or less.
there were 50 days from the time of the crucifixion or (passover) until the day of Pentecost.
Jesus was in the lower parts of the earth for 3 days,
The Bible also says that he was with the disciples for 40 days.
43-50 = 7.
It could be less because the bible is not absolutely clear when the 40 days began that Jesus was with His disciples, most believe that it was from the time that He rose from the dead, but we can take into account that Jesus had not yet ascended to the Father, and had only appeared to His disciples 3 different times the first week after he was raised from the dead, and it was also a sabbath days journey from the place that Jesus ascended from heaven and told the disciples to go to Jerusalem and wait for the promise of the Holy Ghost, but a sabbath day's journey is less than 3/4 of a mile, so realistically, it is at most 7 days, and at least one day.
9 days. Jesus rose on Easter and taught the disciples for 40 days, then he ascended. Acts 1:12 tells us that it took the disciples one day to walk back to Jerusalem. Upon returning Acts 1:14 tells us that they constantly prayed with the women and with Mary until the Holy Spirit came on the day on Pentecost. Pentecost is 50 days after Easter. So, Jesus taught 40 days + 1 day to walk back = 41 days. 50-41=9. this is also where the Catholic Novena devotions come from, where a person would fervently pray for 9 days.
Before ascending to heaven, Jesus the Messiah or Christ told his faithful disciples to remain in Jerusalem until the holy spirit of God should descend upon them. (Acts 1:1-15) The disciples had to wait only ten days from then, till the festival day of Pentecost. On that day about one hundred and twenty of them were met together in an upper room in Jerusalem. (Acts 2:1-5)
There is a subtle difference here with the term 'disciple' which means 'imitator' or follower of Christ. This also includes the special office of Apostle who received the promised gift of the Holy Spirit - personally from the risen Jesus, the evening of the 1st day of the week. Jesus had already ascending into Heaven to the Father as the 'Wave Sheath' offering for the sins of all mankind (John 20:19).
Note: Jewish tradition had days beginning at sunset or evening and ending at sunset. This being the case and Jesus arose on late Saturday before sunset of the next day, this would be in the dark or evening hours of Sunday - the 1st day of the week.John 20:21-23New King James Version (NKJV)
21 So Jesus said to them again, "Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you." 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."
The Apostles did not have the full power and understanding of the Spirit until they, included with the 120 disciples on the day of Pentecost - meaning 50th day after Christ arose and was glorified as the first of the firstborn - received it in the Book of Acts chapter 2.
Note: 50 days or 7 weeks and 1 day after the Saturday Resurrection was a Sunday or 1st day of the week.
49 The seventh Sunday after Easter, commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples.
At least 12 people.
Only eleven disciples were filled with the holy spirit on Pentecost day. As Judas had committed suicide.
Ascension is the fortieth day after Easter and Pentecost the fiftieth. In the liturgical year, they are usually celebrated on the following Sunday.
The Pentecost is usually seven weeks after Easter Sunday. The Pentecost usually comes 50 days after Easter. The days counted include Easter Day.
It is 50 days after Easter.50 days
Pentecost was fifty days after passover and Jesus ascended forty days after the resurrection. I believe the answer is pentecost occurred one week after the ascension.
Pentecost Sunday is 49 days after Easter Sunday.
A:Acts of the Apostles says that on the day of Pentecost, everyone in the upper room was filled with the Holy Spirit coming down on them as tongues of fire. They spoke in tongues as the spirit gave them the utterance. After this they began to baptise many people. They sold all their possessions to help others and began to preach the gospel. The story of the Christian Pentecost seems to have been inspired by the Jewish Pentecost, or Shavuot, celebrated from the second century BCE onwards in memory of the giving of the Law on Mount Sinai. It takes place fifty days after Passover, just as the Christian Pentecost takes place fifty days after Easter. Numbers 11:25 tells us that on that occasion, the spirit of God came down on the seventy elders and they began to prophesy in ecstasy.AnswerPentecost was when jesus' disciples had the holy spirit on there heads which made them speak different languages so they could spread the world of christ.
Many biblical students believe the Church of God, initially called 'The Way' and only later in Antioch was labeled Christianity, began in the Upper Room outside of Jerusalem on Pentecost Sunday, Jun 17, 31 A.D.. This is exactly 50 days (meaning of Pentecost) after the Saturday resurrection of Jesus.
