Spiritual Gifts in the Bible

This past Sunday the sermon was on spiritual gifts. Here are the passages in the Bible that list spiritual gifts, and the gifts that are listed. I do not believe any of these list are exhaustive - or even all of them combined. I also believe some of these gifts ceased with the completion of the canon of Scripture. We will cover that particular aspect of spiritual gifts on a future Sunday when we come to the second half of 1 Corinthians 13.
