Rabbi Tovia Singer: Church Replaced Receiving of the Torah on Shevuot with Holy Spirit on Pentecost

Answering a callers question on air, Rabbi Tovia Singer explores the deep meaning behind the commandment to count of the Omer, the forty-nine days between the Jewish holidays of Passover and Shavuot as stated in Leviticus 23:15-16. Why is Passover and Shavuot intimately connected by the 49-day Omer? Why are the Children of Israel commanded to count each day from the Exodus to the receiving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai? Furthermore, Rabbi Singer reveals why the author of the book of Acts kept the disciples in Jerusalem in order to receive the Holy Spirit on Pentecost rather than celebrate the giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai.
