Now when Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven demons. She went and told those who had been with him, as they mourned and wept. But when they heard that he was alive and had been seen by her, they would not believe it. After this he appeared in another form to two of them, as they were walking into the country. And they went back and told the rest, but they did not believe them. Afterward he appeared to the eleven themselves as they sat at table; and he upbraided them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who saw him after he had risen. And he said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation.” And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Mark 16:9-15, 20
Pentecost is 50 days after Jesus' resurrection. It is when the Holy Spirit descends upon the Apostles, continuing the mission Jesus started only 3 years prior.
