Episode 09 Tongues being divided

舌头被分别开来 Tongues being divided

Acts 2:1-4

1五旬节到了,他们都聚集在一起。2忽然有一阵好像强风吹过的响声,从天而来,充满了他们坐在里面的整间屋子。3又有火焰般的舌头显现出来,分别落在他们各人身上。4他们都被圣灵充满,就照着圣灵所赐给他们的口才,用别种语言说出话来。

1When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

多种语言是一件困扰全人类许久的事,这原是为了惩罚人的骄傲,但现在却被转化成为祝福的源泉。试想当初如果不是上帝要阻止人类邪恶无神的计划,我们又如何会有这么多语言呢?(创 11:1-9)

但如今,上帝却用许多语言装备祂的信徒,好让他们能召回在漫无目的游荡男女,使这些人也能返回上帝所立定满有喜乐的家。

Something that had plagued men and women and had been a punishment for human pride was now turned into a source of blessing, for how did this diversity of languages come about if not to thwart the evil and godless plans of humankind?

But now God equipped the disciples with many tongues, so that they might call home men and women who were wandering aimlessly here and there and bring them into a unity made happy by God.
