Acts 2; Speaking in Tongues


I am writing tonight from the beautiful Tampa Bay area.

Acts 2:6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 
 2:7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?  

 2:8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 

The Bible clearly teaches that speaking in tongues is not a bunch of gibberish, but where people hear the gospel in their own language. Here is a study onthe gift of tongues.

The Gift of Tongues 

Acts 2:1-6 ———————- How did every one hear them speak?

Acts 2:7-11 ——————– Did anyone need an interpreter?

1 Corinthians 12:1-10 ——– Do all receive the same gift?

NOTE: In the modern charismatic movement it is claimed that all must receive the gift of UNKNOWN tongues.

1 Corinthians 12:7 ———— Are the gifts given to benefit the believer, or body?

1 Corinthians 12:11, 18 —– Who decides who gets what gifts?

1 Corinthians 12:28 ———– What place does tongues hold in the list of gifts?

NOTE: Of the three lists of the gifts of the Spirit (Ephesians 4:11-14, Romans 12:6-8, 1 Corinthians 12-14), only Corinthians lists tongues; (and even then at the bottom of the list) and that in seeking to correct a problem that had arisen from a corruption of the true gift.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3 ———- What is needed for any of these to be effective?

1 Corinthians 14:1, 5 ——— Which gift is the most desirable?

1 Corinthians 14:4 ————- Why is this greater than an unknown tongue?

1 Corinthians 14:6, 9, 11 —- Why should others understand what is said?

1 Corinthians 14:12 ———– What is the primary purpose of the gifts?

1 Corinthians 14:15 ———– What should one always have when praying?

1 Corinthians 14:18, 19 —— What did Paul say about tongues in church?

1 Corinthians 14:22 ———– To whom are tongues a sign?

1 Corinthians 14:26, 33 —— What was the apparent problem in Corinth?

1 Corinthians 14:40 ———– What is Paul’s closing counsel?
