3 Nephi 17-19—Jesus continues his ministry among the Nephites, healing them and blessing their children. The Lord has his disciples baptized and receive the Holy Ghost. Do we ponder what the Lord has taught us? Do we truly know how much we have?
1 Corinthians 11-14 – Paul instructs on a number of issues: familial relationships, the emblems of the sacrament, and spiritual gifts. How are husbands and wives intertwined with the Lord? Why are ordinances like the sacrament important? Do you know your spiritual gifts?
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
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?
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.
Ezekiel 18; 34-37 – How is a shepherd different from a sheepherder? What promises are given to Israel in the vision of the valley of bones? What unique understanding do we have of the stick of Judah and stick of Joseph due to modern-day revelation?
Jeremiah suffered through a lot. He prophesied of and watched the destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of Babylon. He dealt with an ineffectual people. Jeremiah faced much adversity. Yet he soldiered on. He did not shirk. He maintained his focus. Kurt Francom of LeadingLDS.com joins us.
Isaiah 54-56; 63-65 – Ever wonder why Mormons have “stakes”? Isaiah is why. How do we not just enlarge out stakes, but also strengthen them? Sometimes too easily we focus on proclaiming the gospel but not perfecting the saints. How will Christ gather his children? What will change with the Millennium? Rachel Murdock is here and she’s awesome!
Isaiah 40-49 – Why is it important to not just know of the Savior but to actually know Him? What bearing does that have on your relationship with Him and the gospel? How is Christ incomparable? Amazing scriptures here, and our local scriptorian, Al Doan, is here to help. No, seriously, Al knows Isaiah really well.
