Matt. 24; Mark 14 – What are the signs of the Second Coming? Why is the Joseph Smith translation of the Bible important? Why is it important for us not to live in the past and look to prior achievements as we move forward into the future?
Matt 13 – Why did Jesus speak in parables and how could a learned ruling class not understand these parables? This lesson focuses on parables, in general, with particular emphasis on the Parable of the Sower. We also talk about many of the parables found in this chapter of Matthew. Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS joins us.
Matt 11, 12; Luke 7 – What does it mean to take upon ourselves the yoke of Christ? How does he make it light? Why does Christ defend breaking with Jewish custom when it comes to performing holy work on the Sabbath? How does he defend his disciples against the Pharisees for picking the chaff on the Sabbath? Erik Johnson is here!
Matthew 5: David and Rachel Zobell join us to discuss the first chapter of the Sermon on the Mount. Why were the Beatitudes uttered first? What does it mean to be meek? How are we the salt of the earth and the light of the world? Picture yourself as a Jew in the meridian of time. Can you imagine receiving teaching that the Law of Moses was fulfilled?
Matthew 3-4: Rachel and David Zobell join us to discuss John the Baptist’s role in serving a forerunner of Christ. How did John prepare the people? Why was he necessary? What did he preach? Why was Christ baptized when He was perfect? Satan tempts Jesus in the wilderness, but Jesus resists. How can fasting strengthen us?
