3 Nephi 12-14—The Savior continues his ministry to the Nephites, teaching them the Beatitudes and announcing the law of Moses fulfilled. These are incredible chapters and the culmination of hundreds of years of Nephites prophecies. Our buddy Al Doan decided to hop in and join us for this episode.
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.
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?
Matthew 3-4: Rachel and David Zobell join us to discuss John the Baptist’s role in serving a forerunner of Christ. How did John prepare the people? Why was he necessary? What did he preach? Why was Christ baptized when He was perfect? Satan tempts Jesus in the wilderness, but Jesus resists. How can fasting strengthen us?
