Mosiah 12-17 – Think about prophets who have faced difficulty in carrying out their respective missions. Abinadi faces incredible oppression from Noah’s court and corrupt priests. Why did Abinadi lean on the Law of Moses? Abinadi, like many prophets, seals his testimony with his life.
Acts 18-29; Galatians – Paul confers the Holy Ghost upon believers in Ephesus. Apollos is taught the gospel. Paul chastises the Galatians for returning to the Law of Moses. How can we follow the spirit and avoid attitudes and actions that will prevent us from feeling its influence?
Acts:10-15 – The Apostles spread the gospel to the Gentiles in several cities. The law of circumcision (and with it, the law of Moses) is clarified. Herod kills James and Peter is miraculously freed from prison. Revelation guides Peter to make decisions for the Church.
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?
Deuteronomy 6; 8; 11; 32 – Moses gives his final three sermons to the Israelites before Israel is to cross the Jordan and overtake Canaan. What would you impart to loved ones if it was the last time you would speak to them? How do covenants strengthen us? How was Israel counseled to remember their God? How can we do the same? Dustin Homer is with us.
3 Nephi 12-15 – Christ continues his teaching of the Nephites, citing the Beatitudes. What does it mean to be the “salt of the earth”? The Law of Moses is fulfilled. How must we live to be true disciples of Christ? How do we honor His sacrifice?
Mosiah 12-17 – Abinadi returns to call the people of Noah to repentance. He is rejected and eventually burned to death. How does the Law of Moses prepare us to understand Christ’s atonement? How does Abinadi testify of Christ by using the Law of Moses? How do we keep the words of the scriptures “written on our hearts”?
