VIDEO: Did Jesus Speak In Tongues?

In a recent edition of his "Ask Pastor Mark" video series, former Mars Hill pastor and author of Spirit-Filled Jesus Mark Driscoll answers a provocative question: Did Jesus speak in tongues?

"We don't know," Driscoll responds with a smile. "Was he filled with the Holy Spirit? It says that very clearly." Citing his cessationist background in ministry, Driscoll, who now pastors Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona, says, "Oftentimes the fight is 'do you guys believe in tongues and speak in tongues or not?' and it should be 'are you Spirit-filled like Jesus or not?'"

"We know Jesus was filled with the Spirit," Driscoll continues, expressing thankfulness that Scripture isn't completely clear on this issue. Rather than merely speaking in tongues, Driscoll declares that "being filled with the Spirit is the thing to focus on."
