Episode 2: Alma 5 - 7

Shiloh and Ben discuss Alma’s first missionary experience to the people of Zarahemla and to Gideon. Alma was not only the High Priest over the Church, but he was also the Chief Judge of the new Nephite government. Once Alma saw the social inequality going on in society, he abdicated the socio-political power to Nephihah and resorted to being a missionary -- seeing “no way” that he could reclaim the people except by bearing down pure testimony.

Is it possible that the parable in D&C 88 also offers a glimpse into a universalist understanding of God where the various “degrees of light” often metaphysically equated to the three degrees of glory has more to do with our perception of those glories than of the metaphysical nature of those glories? ...

Episode 87: Gen 12-17; Abr 1 - 2

The Biblical narrative of Abraham follows a chiasmic structure common to ancient Hebrew literature. Events proceed to a climax and then repeat in reverse order. The Book of Abraham in the Pearl of Great Price offers some enriching perspective to the overall story and highlights the key concept of Priesthood as a recurring theme and mode. Abraham is not only blessed, but is given the responsibility to bless all of humanity. The climax of the narrative centers on an unlikely person and offers profound insight into the character of God and his mercy. What is Abraham learning about God and what is significant about his literal and spiritual journey? ...
