    Why Did Alma Draw on the Teachings of Abinadi? #571

    Astute readers of the Book of Mormon may have noticed that “Alma [the Younger] shows an affinity for the words of Abinadi.” Nowhere is this affinity more evident than in his counsel to his son Corianton, where research by John L. Hilton III indicates that Alma made at least thirteen allusions or direct quotations to Abinadi’s teachings (see table and appendix).

    Why Did Alma See God Surrounded by Angels? #570

    Why Did Alma See God Surrounded by Angels? #570

    Alma 36 is a powerful story of repentance and redemption, but why did Alma tell it to Helaman instead of Corianton, his son in most need of repentance? Scholars have found that Alma is also relating a prophetic call narrative, which conforms to the expectations of ancient Israel and pre-Columbian America. Thus, Alma related his own prophetic commission to his eldest son and successor as he simultaneously commissioned Helaman to his own prophetic call.

Fantastic

Wonderful insights with lots of doctrine and application, but with the constant reminder that the most important knowledge is spiritual.

KnowWhy

I'm sure Neal Rappleye is a very good researcher and probably should stick with that talent. When I recognize his voice doing the KnowWhys I know it will be read too fast and sound awkward. And I may or may not listen to the end.

A Golden Age

We are certainly living in a golden age of gospel scholarship. The ease of access to sources, productions, materials, and so on is matches only by their increasingly improving quality! The abundance of books, lectures, podcasts, institutions, publications, shows, and commentaries presents a wealth of knowledge, insights, opinions, research, and testimony reflecting the expertises, convictions, and passions active within (and near) the LDS Church today. Never has it been as easy to heed the commandments of D&C 88 than it is in these days. Discipleship and scholarship are truly rolling forth together, and it is nothing short of an embarrassment of riches at our disposal! I’m so pleased with this podcast!
