Brian LePort on Speaking in Tongues

Brian LePort has some interesting posts relating to scriptures that deal with the issue of speaking in tongues. He first discusses Luke's perspective in the book of Acts, and then discusses Paul's perspective in 1 Corinthians. I think Brian has an excellent evenhanded discussion of the topics, even though I disagree with him in some minor points. While many interpreters are either trying to explain away the existence of tongues, or to demonstrate conclusively the present use of tongues, it seems to me that Brian is seriously trying to exegete the original writers' concerns with regard to the topic.

Check it out.

  1. I know it has only been about two months, but I have another discussion going on the role of tongues in Lukan theology over at if you are interested.
