In the gospels, there were instances (aside from the words of Jesus Himself, or of angels delivering messages from God) where God the Father spoke directly from heaven, such as at Jesus' baptism (Matthew 3:16-17; Mark 1:10-11; Luke 3:23); in John 12:28; and also at the Transfiguration (Matthew 17:5; Mark 9:7; Luke 9:35).

There are also multiple instances in the book of Acts where God the Father, the glorified Christ, or God the Holy Spirit spoke, such as in Acts 9:4-16, Acts 10:13-20, Acts 13:2, Acts 18:9-10, and Acts 23:11.

Jesus is also recorded as speaking from heaven in multiple passages in Revelation. These passages include Revelation 1:11-4:1, Revelation 10:8-11; Revelation 16:1; Revelation 21:3-8; and Revelation 22:6-7;12-13;16;20.
