Searching the Scriptures

Going back a bit, but a few weeks ago we looked at some answers to gospel questions from the scriptures, as Joseph Fielding Smith used to do.

Here are the results you found in class:

1. Why are the scriptures important?


Exodus 24:1-4 The prophet delivers insights straight from the Lord for us.

1 Nephi 19:23 We should 'liken' the scriptures to our own situation to learn lessons from the past.

Jacob 5:1 The scriptures remind us of the words of the prophets.

1 Nephi 13:26 The Book of Mormon clarifies some of the 'plain and precious truths that have been lost.

2. What is God like?

Moses 1:1-2 He spoke to Moses face to face on a high mountain.

Moses 1:6 He knows all things, He is the only God and we are created in the similitude (likeness) of His Only Begotten (Jesus Christ).

3. What will the Second Coming be like?

Job 19:25 The Saviour shall stand on the earth at the latter day.

D&C 34:9 Before the Second Coming the sun shall be darkened, the moon turned to blood, the stars shall fall from heaven and greater signs in heaven and earth.

Excellent work everyone! Remember, whenever you want to find scriptures on a particular topic use the Topical Guide, Bible Dictionary or Index.
