comment What was the definition of the spiritual gift of the word of Knowledge in early pentecostalism?
Janet, I have asked a couple of questions trying to trace how the view on this specific gift has evolved within the pentecostal-charismatic stream of Christianity. This is one of them. And I am asking specifically abut the views that were held by the first generation pentecostals. That was a specific question looking for a specific answer. While I appreciate your willingness to share, yes your present day views are not relevant to the question asked. Sorry if that seems harsh, but it's the format of this site.

comment How did Thomas Aquinas view grace as opposed to the church fathers?
My teacher at the seminary who started this inquiry did not mention anyone specific. His statement was rather sweeping, but if I had the time to investigate I would probably narrow myself to Justin, Irenaios, Tertullian and Origenes. However, by the very way my teacher talked about this, he assumed it could be considered common knowledge. I guess that's not the case.

Questioner says @Anonymous: If there is significant variation among the early Church Fathers of course that must influence the answer.

comment What was the first Spiritual Gifts Inventory book published or who was the first to use the method?
I have read everything I could lay my hand on by Howard Carter, Donald Gee and Thomas ab Aquino on the topic of Spiritual Gifts. They do not share the methodology of the SGI-type of material. Please note the word "questionnaire" in the question. (There are in fact many differences between the SGI material and the pentecostal tradition.)

I have now read through every relevant passage in the Magazine 'The Voice of Healing', the leading publication of the healing revival, plus some relevant books. I think the opinion of Grant is mainstream in the movement, and will set my answer as the accepted one.

One thing is sure, there is no questionnaire in the Bible... However, I have fund the answer myself by now and will answer this question.

comment Why does the Old Testament never mention unclean spirits and demon-posessed people?
Dropped paragraph altogether. It was secondary to my argument in any case. Lesson learned: Read more carefully before posting. I just did a quick look up end got "untranslatable part of the accusative case" for mê-'et, but a more careful look says me that it only was about 'et, not the whole. The grammar discussion probably belong better on the hermeneutics site, though.

I was wrong about the Hebrew text.

Indeed, I misread the Hebrew. There was a mê'im, but it referred to the Spirit of God departing from Saul
