Gospel Doctrine Lesson 23

Recommended Posts

As promised, Scott. A few fun insights for this week's GD lesson posted on Patheos. In my mind, these somewhat random ideas provide some interesting BofM and temple links with Lesson 23.

Your friend,

Thanks very much David. For some reason, I've found this lesson particularly challenging in my effort to make it meaningful for the class. Your perspective helps a great deal.

Not one of the most exciting parts of the OT from my perspective. Psalms and Isaiah, however, are right around the corner.

Great insight- I hadn't noticed that before- thanks!

I loved the insight about the contrast between the tallest and the shortest. Good stuff.

As far as the clothing imagery goes, I recently started posting a number of thoughts on the fall festival in the BoM, including the use of robes:

In "A Robe of Righteousness: From Adam to Isaiah" I looked at the verses you cited as a possible reference to Adam's story and to Isaiah 61.

In "'Rid of Your Blood': Robes and Atonement in the Book of Mormon" I looked at the blood-on-robe symbolism in the Book of Mormon as a reference to the Day of Atonement High Priest ritual in the Holy of Holies.

Fantastic, David. I used some of your insights from lesson 22 in my lesson last Sunday. Are you going to be doing this every week?

Thanks Joseph. I'm going to give it a try. Movers are coming on Monday and we're planning on taking about a week to drive across the country visiting Church history sites, so we'll see. Very pleased that the comments proved useful. Grateful for your interest.

Best,

That's a really wonderful insight.
