Pentecost Reversal

What appears to be clear in the Acts 2 pericope is that Pentecost is the great Babelic reversal. When the tower of Babel was being built, the languages were confused so they could not continue their work of paganizing the nations through their monumental ladder into the heavens. Pentecost is the exact opposite. The languages are brought into a unifying message so the nations may be evangelized through the monumental fire from the heavens.
