3 Nephi 12-14—The Savior continues his ministry to the Nephites, teaching them the Beatitudes and announcing the law of Moses fulfilled. These are incredible chapters and the culmination of hundreds of years of Nephites prophecies. Our buddy Al Doan decided to hop in and join us for this episode.
2 Nephi 26-30 – Jeff King returns to the studio to talk about Nephi’s final exhortations to his people. He teaches about the restoration, the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, and good triumphing over evil. Let’s dance!
Philippians, Colossians, Philemon – Patricia Doxey is back with us to talk about what makes these later Pauline epistles different from those that precede them. What is the “admonition of Paul”? Why did Paul need to correct the practices of the Colossians? How can we remember to keep our focus on Christ in our worship?
Jesus completes his mortal ministry. Judas betrays him, the Sanhedrin goes forward with a show trial, Jesus is scourged, Pilate sentences Jesus to death, and Christ offers himself as a sacrifice for all mankind. Listen to this quick episode and get prepared for a powerful and important Gospel Doctrine lesson.
John 12; Matthew 21-23 – How do we avoid being hypocritical in our dealings with others? We share some old mission stories that taught us about hypocrisy and service. Mary anoints Jesus’ feet. Why is this ordinance important? Jesus enters Jerusalem on Passover. What does the parable of the two sons teach us?
Luke 18-19; John 11 – As Jesus nears the end of his final journey to Jerusalem, he teaches the parable of the unjust judge and the widow, as well as the parable of the pharisee and the publican. What do we learn about perseverance from these stories? Jesus also heals a blind man and stays with Zacchaeus. Lastly, Jesus performs one of the most incredible miracles of His ministry, raising Lazarus from the dead. Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS sits in with us to discuss!
John 7-8 – Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS sits down to talk about the Feast of the Tabernacles and its significance, particularly how the Savior being the “Light of the World” was important language to the Jews. What do we learn from the way Christ dealt with the adulterous woman? How is Christ a light in your life?
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!
Mark 1-5 – Why did Jesus perform miracles? How did they instruct the people and testify of his divinity? We discuss many miracles, including casting out devils (Legion), raising Jairus’ daughter from the dead, healing the woman with a condition of blood, healing and forgiving a man with palsy, calming the seas, and others. Bill Doolittle is back.
John 3, 4 – Jesus teaches Nicodemus that we must be born of water and the Spirit to enter the kingdom of God. Why? Why does baptism matter? Why do ordinances matter? Jesus later visits the Samaritan woman at the well and teaches about living water, the way to find true life and salvation. What can we learn from the way Jesus taught? Al Doan is with us for the first time in a long time.
