Description

Current scholarship analyzes spiritual gifts predominantly from Acts 2, Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, and Ephesians 4. With the assumption that the Holy Spirit belongs to the Godhead and His actions are constant and persistent throughout Scripture, this study develops an Old Testament perspective on the Holy Spirit’s role as gift-giver. This exegetical research investigates Numbers 11:16-29 as the key passage, where the Holy Spirit bestows His gifts upon Israel’s leaders. In addition, the valid connections between Numbers 11 and 2 Kings 2 provide a broader and more consistent contextual interpretation of spiritual gifts within the Old Testament.
