Biblical names are hard.
As a pastor, I’ve read Acts 2 aloud to commemorate Pentecost many times. While I do my best each time I read it to place proper emphasis on the craziness caused by God’s gift of the Holy Spirit- mass spontaneous combustion sounds pretty impressive- it’s difficult not to get sidetracked and a bit overwhelmed by all of the punishing names there are to pronounce in Peter’s speech. No wonder part of his audience thought he was drunk.
Whether you’re the one who has to struggle through the reading or one of the people who gets to chuckle at whomever does read it, I hope you have a blessed Pentecost. Thanks for looking!
