Episode 2

How should we, as Torah observant believers, understand the phenomenon of “speaking in tongues”?


Show Notes

In this study, Tim Hegg takes us through his paper titled, “Tongues – Some Preliminary Investigations”. He begins by looking the word for ‘tongues’ in the Greek, which is glossa. Hegg explores this word within the Apostolic Scriptures, the Septuagint, the Qumran texts, and more. He then turns to an exegetical study of the Greek word glossa in the book of Acts to better understand its meaning. In addition, Tim looks at the purpose of this spiritual gift within Acts 2 and finally, turns the focus of the study to 1 Corinthians 12-14.

This discussion was recorded during a lively afternoon study session at Beit Hallel in Tacoma, Washington. The reason these sessions are chosen is because there is some good interaction that takes place during these afternoon Bible studies. This sort of interaction is good to hear and learn from.
