The events took place on the day of the Pentecost, in Jerusalem, at 9 a.m. ("the third hour of the day", according to Jewish timekeeping). The community of Christ disciples, 120 persons, was gathered "into an upper room" in a building that the Tradition locates on Mount Zion. The Tradition also says that it was the same room where Jesus ate His Last Supper. The tremenduous phenomenon is very well described in Acts 2:1-4:

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place./ And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting./ And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them./ And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

The phrase a rushing mighty wind is almost a literally description of the Hebrew word ruah, meaning in Hebrew texts the Spirit of God. The experience is a powerful mystic one, hence the sensation of sacred possession (misinterpreted as drunkenness) and the advent of supernatural gifts: the speaking with other tongues (glossolalia) and the prophesying. During the Apostolic times, many of the people who received the Christian baptism experienced the same extraordinary gifts. Therefore, according to some, the real Christian baptism is a personal Pentecost. Some Christians (especially Pentecostals) believe that individuals that did not experience the Pentecost gifts through baptism cannot be sure of having received the Holy Ghost and, therefore, are in great spiritual danger, despite any other claim or justification.
