The Sign: Tongues Part 8
by John Lowe
(Laurens SC, USA)
It is worthwhile to note that almost all the places and provinces mentioned by St. Luke are mentioned also in this letter of King Agrippa. Since these people are all either Jews or proselytes, they could understand to some extent the wonderful works of God, of which mere heathens could have had no comprehension. It was wisely prearranged that the miraculous descent of the Holy Ghost should take place at this time when so many from various nations were present to bear witness to what was done and to be themselves subjects of His mighty miracle. These men, when they returned to their respective countries, would naturally make known the things they saw and heard; and by this the way was prepared for the coming of the apostles; and thus Christianity made a rapid progress over all those parts of the world in a very short time after the resurrection of our Lord.
