Shavuot 2016 – Acts 2:5-8 In Many Tongues

Home/Messianic Judaism/Judaica/Holidays/Shavuot 2016 – Acts 2:5-8 In Many Tongues

This year during our Shavuot service we invited people to read Acts 2:5-8 in the language of their culture.  The audio recording of this special event is available above.

Acts 2:5-8: Now there were Jews living in Jerusalem, devout men from every nation under heaven. And when this sound occurred, the crowd came together, and were bewildered because each one of them was hearing them speak in his own language. They were amazed and astonished, saying, “Why, are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we each hear them in our own language to which we were born? (NIV)
