236.2: What is Scripture? (D&C Gospel Doctrine Lesson 13)
2 days ago
“This Generation Shall Have My Word through You”
We usually don’t stop to think about it, but our conceptions of the nature of scripture play a key role in our understanding of spiritual reality. The fundamental question is: Do we use scripture to understand the rest of reality, or do we need to use other evidence first to understand the nature of scripture? Or is there a way where they can inform each other? So for example, do we take the scriptural descriptions of God at face value and try to understand life using that framework, or do we use our personal experiences and other sources to understand God and then use that understanding to engage with the scriptural accounts?
This lesson explores the scriptural contributions of Joseph Smith, and a key goal will be to explore the nature of Joseph’s revelations and the new scripture he brought forth, as well as their significance. This new scripture includes:
* Book of Mormon
* Book of Commandments–>Doctrine & Covenants
* Book of Moses/Joseph Smith Translation
* Book of Abraham
* Lectures on Faith (remember, these were included in the D&C until 1921!)
* Theologically significant sermons such as the King Follett Discourse
* The temple endowment
Since we have already talked about the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine & Covenants, we will focus this lesson on the Joseph Smith Translation and Book of Abraham, while also touching on the idea of scripture as a whole and Joseph’s other contributions.
Jessica, John, and Ben join the class.
