The gift of tongues, described in various biblical passages, including 1 Corinthians 14 and Acts 2, is interpreted differently within Christian traditions. Some view it as a form of ecstatic or unknown language used for prayer, worship, or spiritual communication, contributing to personal edification and communal worship. Others interpret it as xenoglossia, where individuals speak existing human languages unknown to them, facilitating evangelism and cross-cultural communication. Whether viewed as a personal spiritual gift or a tool for evangelism, the gift of tongues underscores the mystical, transformative nature of spiritual experiences and the diversity of spiritual practices within Christianity.
