This blog gains its name from the book Steele's Answers published in 1912. It began as an effort to blog through that book, posting each of the Questions and Answers in the book in the order in which they appeared. I started this on Dec. 10, 2011. I completed blogging from that book on July 11, 2015. Along the way, I began to also post snippets from Dr. Steele's other writings — and from some other holiness writers of his times. Since then, I have begun adding material from his Bible commentaries. I also re-blog many of the old posts.

Pentecost Painting

QUESTION: Have any of the masters represented Pentecost in a painting?

ANSWER: I once saw one in the chancel of a cathedral in Europe. From a dove there was descending a flame upon the heads of eleven men respectively and one woman, supposed to be the Virgin Mary.
