A mix of peoples 

Jews from all over the Mediterranean world, and beyond, gathered in Jerusalem for the Feast of Pentecost (Acts 2:5), and Luke mentioned some of the places, 

“Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs—we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God” (Acts 2:9-11). 

These visiting-Jews heard the apostles speaking miraculously in other languages, but notice what they heard: The apostles spoke of the wonderful works of God. 
That is my favorite subject to preach and to teach, that is, God and the wonderful things He does.
 
Do you like to hear such things? What do you like to hear a preacher declare both about God Himself and what He has done?
