This study shows how the divine revelation of Pentecost functions as the primal and generative source for Pentecostal theology. Pentecost is both a biblical narrative (Acts 2) and a personal, existential experience of divine revelation, which is understood as a reflection of and participation in the day of Pentecost. After addressing how this experience of Pentecost relates to Pentecostal hermeneutics, an explanation/elaboration is offered for how Pentecostals, through a praxis engagement with the Acts narrative, view revelation as witness of the Spirit, the Word, and the community in the apocalyptic light and fire of Pentecost.
