2 Nephi 11-16 – Bill Doolittle joins us for a discussion on the fabled Isaiah chapters of 2 Nephi. Don’t stress Isaiah! We’ve got you covered.Nephi was actually kind enough to give us keys to understanding Isaiah, and we’ll break them down for you. Isaiah has great visions of the modern-day temple and the gathering of Israel, as well as prophecies regarding the atonement.
The Books of Zechariah and Malachi speak of many prophecies surrounding the Second Coming, those that have come, have yet to come, and won’t come until after the Savior returns. Why are these important to know, but how can they also be an obstacle for us? Malachi discusses tithing and the sealing power. Patricia Doxey closes out the year with us.
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.
Daniel 1; 3; 6; Esther – Daniel and his friends refuse to eat Nebuchadnezzar’s food. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego are cast into a furnace and spare by an angel. Daniel is thrown into the lion’s den for not worshiping Darius. Esther saves Israel from Haman. Tons of great stuff in this lesson with Patricia Auxier!
Rachel Murdock is back with us to talk about Ezekiel’s vision of the new temple in Jerusalem, as well as the river that will flow from the temple into the Dead Sea, bringing life back to the Dead Sea. Great symbolism throughout this lesson.
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 foresees the latter-day gathering of Israel, but what does “the gathering” really mean? How are we hunters and/or gatherers? Later, the Lord describes having his law written “in the hearts” of his people. How are we affected when we have God’s law actually written in our hearts? Erik Johnson is with us.
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 50-53; Mosiah 14-15 – Erik Johnson joins us for a discussion on the messengers spoken of by Isaiah, as well as the countless prophecies regarding Christ’s atonement taught by Isaiah. These are some of our very favorite passages of scripture and there are tons of valuable insights if you take the time to read and ponder.
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.
