Another of the Same Kind
- Bob Yandian goes into depth about the differences between the Greek words “ALLOS” and “HETEROS,” which were both translated “another” in 1 Corinthians 12:8-10. ALLOS means another of the same kind, and HETEROS means another of a different kind.
- The summary of his teaching is that the gifts of the word of wisdom and word of knowledge are gifts of the same kind. Then the gifts of faith, gifts of healing, the working of miracles, prophecy, and discerning of spirits are gifts of the same kind but different from word of wisdom and word of knowledge.
- Lastly, the gifts of different tongues and the interpretation of tongues are gifts of the same kind but different from the previous five. This groups the first two gifts (word of wisdom and word of knowledge) together. Then the next five gifts (faith, gifts of healing, working of miracles, prophecy, and discerning of spirits) are grouped together. Then the last two gifts (different tongues and the interpretation of tongues) are grouped together. That divides the nine gifts of the Spirit into two, five, and two.
- Many have also grouped the nine gifts together into three, three, and three. The word of wisdom, word of knowledge, and prophecy are what are often called the revelation gifts. Then faith, gifts of healing, and working of miracles are the demonstration gifts. And discerning of spirits, divers kinds of tongues, and interpretation of tongues are the utterance gifts.
1 Corinthians 12:1-11
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant:
You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led.
Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.
There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.
And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:
for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,
to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,
to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.
