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

Old Testament Lesson 18: “Be Strong and of a Good Courage”

Joshua 1-6; 23; 24 – Danny Rasmussen of Normons.com joins us. The Lord calls Joshua to succeed Moses and command shim to be strong. How would you feel receiving a calling in the wake of someone as grand as Moses? The Israelites cross the Jordan river on dry ground via faith. Jericho is destroyed. What reminders are there to serve us and ancient Israel?

Old Testament Lesson 17: “Beware Lest Thou Forget”

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.

Old Testament Lesson 15: “Look to God and Live”

Numbers 11-14; 21 – The Israelites murmur about eating manna and desire meat. Why did they lose sight of their goal of the promised land? Miriam and Aaron gripe about Moses and the Lord chastises them for speaking against their leader. How do we backbite against our leaders today? How did Joshua and Caleb demonstrate resolve? What did the Israelites need to do to be saved from the fiery serpents? How do we look to God? Lauren Johnson joins us.

Old Testament Lesson 14: “Ye Shall Be a Peculiar Treasure unto Me”

Exodus 15-19; 32-34 – The Israelites murmur. How do we murmur? The Lord provides for them, regardless. What does manna symbolize? How do the Israelites literally sustain Moses while fighting the Amalekites? How can we sustain our leaders? What did Jethro teach Moses about delegation? Why does the Lord give Israel the Law of Moses instead of a higher law? Danielle Openshaw joins us.

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 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.

Old Testament Lesson 5: “If Thou Doest Well, Thou Shalt Be Accepted”

Moses 5-7 – Cain loves Satan more than God and slays Abel. Cain enters into a secret combination with Satan. What do we learn from Cain’s pride and disobedience? What do we learn from the City of Enoch? How can we be like the people of Enoch? Kurt from LeadingLDS joins us.

Old Testament Lesson 4: “Because of My Transgression My Eyes Are Opened”

Moses 4-5; Genesis 2-3 – We study the Fall in this lesson. Why is the Fall important? How does the Mormon understanding of the Fall differ from that of mainstream Christianity? What are the effects of the Fall and how do we overcome them? Bill Doolittle joins us and he is glorious.

Old Testament Lesson 3: “The Creation”

Moses 1; 2 – The Creation is good. That’s how God sums it up (repeatedly, we might add) in the Book of Moses. We discuss the purpose of the creation, what Moses learned from witnessing a vision of the creation, and how we can learn from the creation of not just the earth, but ourselves. After all, why is it important to know that we are created in God’s image? Danielle Openshaw joins us. That’s right, Geoff’s wife. Word!
