D&C 95; 109; 110—Where did modern-day temple worship come from and how can the temple be a greater blessing in your life? Joseph Smith came to understand temples through years of study and prayer and we can do the same. Dustin Homer is with us.

Book of Mormon Lesson 21: “Alma … Did Judge Righteous Judgments”

Mosiah 29; Alma 1-4—Mosiah teaches principles of good government. Your teacher might talk about different forms of government. Push for the plutocracy, folks. It’s the only way!

Alma the Younger becomes chief judge and rejects priestcraft. How does living righteous principles help us to be effective citizens and shun wickedness and priestcraft?

Book of Mormon Lesson 19: “None Could Deliver Them but the Lord”

Mosiah 18-24 – Alma teaches the baptismal covenant. Think about how radical a proposition it was for the people at the time – learning the importance of living with others not like them, mourning with them, and standing with them. Alma and Limhi’s people are both taken captive by the Lamanites, then delivered by the Lord.

New Testament Lesson 13: “I Will Give unto Thee the Keys of the Kingdom”

Matthew 15-17 – Jesus teaches about serving the Gentiles before the charge goes out to teach them the gospel. Peter testifies that Jesus is the Christ and the Lord discusses the rock upon which His church will be built. We discuss priesthood keys and authority. Christ is transfigured and Peter, James, and John receive the keys of the kingdom. Al Doan is with us

New Testament Lesson 9: “Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God”

Matthew 6: Consider the lilies of the field! Jesus continues the Sermon on the Mount, discussing the importance of doing our service and worship “in secret,” laying up treasures in heaven instead of the earth, and the proper form of prayer. Jesus also teaches us to forgive others and to seek FIRST the kingdom of God. Al Doan joins us.

New Testament Lesson 8: The Sermon on the Mount: “A More Excellent Way”

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?

Old Testament Lesson 46: “A Kingdom, Which Shall Never Be Destroyed” (Daniel)

Daniel 2 – Dustin Homer sits in with us to dissect Daniel’s interpretation of King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, including the large figure made of various metals and the stone cut out of the mountain. Awesome content here and we hope you’ll share with us your thoughts.

Old Testament Lesson 13: Bondage, Passover, and Exodus

Exodus 1-14 – The Israelites are enslaved. Moses is called to deliver the Israelites from bondage, but feels unworthy to do so. How many of you have felt unfit for a calling? What do we learn from Pharaoh’s unwillingness to free the Israelites? How did the Lord deliver His people? Why was the first Passover so significant and what did it represent? What has replaced it today? Dustin Homer joins us for this powerful lesson.

Old Testament Lesson 8: “Living Righteously in a Wicked World”

Genesis 13-19 – Abraham settles in Hebron, Lot near Sodom. What symbolism is there in this imagery? Why did Abraham eventually rescue lot? To whom did Abraham pay tithing? Why were Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed? Is God angry and vindictive? Bill Doolittle joins us.

Old Testament Lesson 6: “Noah … Prepared an Ark to the Saving of His House”

Moses 8-9; Genesis 607 – Noah’s Ark. Truth or allegory? If the Lord loved his people, why did he kill all of them with the flood? What had happened to earth? How is the flood both a literal warning and a metaphor for the dangers of mortality? What are our “arks”? Patricia Auxier joins us.
