In this Come Follow Me podcast episode, Jason and Nate take a look at the the Law of the Lord as revealed in Doctrine and Covenants section 42. The first part of includes instructions for missionary work and teaching by the spirit. The next part dives into commandments the Lord gives his saints similar to the Ten Commandments in the Old Testament. The Lord repeats three times the commandment to not kill. It is interesting that the Lord leaves his law so broadly written. Jason and Nate discuss case law associated with the general law. This includes the law of the city of refuge and accidental murder.

D&C 37 - 40
In this Come Follow Me podcast episode we are covering Doctrine and Covenants 37 – 40. We start off by talking about Joseph Smith’s translation of the Bible and the Lord’s direction to physically gather the saints. Then we move into the Lord’s introduction to himself in Doctrine and Covenants 38. We talk about what are the seraphim? Then we ask what does it mean to be gathered into the Lord’s bosom? We examine the caution that powers of darkness are working on the earth today. Then we see the Lord’s caution to Joseph Smith going into how they know not the hearts of men in their own country. Next we examine what it means when God says if ye are not one, ye are not mine. Along with that, God counsel to us to build up Zion, who were “one in heart.” Finally, we look at the Lords statement that he made the earth rich. How does a rich earth square up to a world driven by scarcity and competition?

Nate’s back! In this episode of the Weekly Deep Dive we take a look at at several shorter sections of Doctrine and Covenants delivered during the general conference of the church in September of 1830. The Lord provides some wise counsel to his missionaries. It feels like some common themes with this discussion revolve around our focus and how the Lord respects our agency. The Lord is showing real urgency in preparing his people for a gathering that will soon take place. He calls missionaries almost immediately after they have found the truth themselves. No need to wait, let’s be prepared! Here is a link to Veil, the song Nate was talking about at the end of the show. It’s by a group called Eastward and a project Nate has been heavily involved with recently. This artist is also the source for where we get out intro/outro music from for our show. https://open.spotify.com/track/2QMwJGBS0CJ3x0sdUInlbD?si=-dCawB9kTqW5i9JhxHb7Kg

In Doctrine and Covenants 29, the Lord is speaking to his people. The verse starts off using metonymy, a type of poetry found frequently in the Hebrew Bible, to describe how the Lord atoned for us. Because of this, I view this as another example that these revelations truly are the voice of the Lord rather than the words of a young farm boy with limited education. Next, a major theme of this section is the gathering of the saints. This theme has been central to many sections in Doctrine and Covenants already, but this time, it is in connection to last day prophesies. The gathering sounds like rapture as those left behind get burned as stubble. However, I think this gathering and destruction that must happen before the Lord comes was already fulfilled. Saints physically gathered to Utah afterwards, the Lord poured out destruction upon the United States. Finally, we talk about how the Lord never at any time gave temporal commandments, but always spiritual commandments.
