The term Pentecost comes from the Greek Πεντηκοστή (Pentēkostē) meaning "fiftieth".It refers to the festival celebrated on the fiftieth day after Passover, also known as the "Feast of Weeks" and the "Feast of 50 days" in rabbinic tradition.. The Septuagint uses the term Pentēkostē to refer to the "Feast of Pentecost" only twice, in the deuterocanonical Book of Also called: Whitsunday. "The book is an imaginative but historically sensitive sketch of the life of a significant early Christian female leader, Priscilla. Priscilla's life, however, is more than a life—it is a clear window through which Ben Witherington offers nothing less than a sketch of first-century Christianity's expansion throughout the Roman Empire—all the way to Rome.

  Both Priscilla and Aquila were present at Pentecost, but their marriage was not arranged until they had returned to Rome. Witherington follows the common suggestion that Priscilla was from a higher social class than Aquila, in fact she was a citizen in this novel. They are active in Roman synagogues, resulting in public disputes over who Jesus was.   I think it makes sense that Priscilla and Aquila were early converts in Jerusalem at Pentecost. Thus, after Pentecost, they return to Rome and bring this new gospel to the synagogue there.
