The Scriptures Are Real (TSAR) with Kerry Muhlestein is a podcast where we look at elements of the scriptures that have become real to us. We interview both experts (people with language, archaeological, historical backgrounds, etc.), and lay folks, and explore times when the scriptures became real to them. This is done from the viewpoint of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe that there is real power in the scriptures and that as they become more real we can better apply them to our lives and draw more power from them.
If you listen to this podcast you will learn all kinds of interesting background information that will help you understand and learn more from the scriptures. We believe it will allow you to add real power to your life.
My gratitude to my co-host Lamar Newmeyer. Also to my friend Rich Nicholls, who composed the introductory music.

    Isaiah, Christ, and the Day of Atonement/Yom Kippur (week of Oct. 3, third to listen to)

He shows briefly how Isaiah 58, a traditional reading for the Day of Atonement), fits into the Day of Atonement. He spends more time on Isaiah 61 and the verses Christ read in the synagogue at Nazareth, and how Isaiah and Christ were drawing on the imagery of the Jubilee Year and the Day of Atonement, and what that has to do with us.

Nothing better

This is absolutely my favorite podcast, and I listen to a lot of podcasts. Kerry is a fantastic teacher and helps me understand the scriptures in ways I never could without him. He has such great guests with powerful insights. I am edified each week as I listen and study. He is really magnifying the gifts God has given him but sharing all of this with the world, so each of us can come closer to God through the scriptures. His deep voice is so pleasant to hear, and he can communicate in a very powerful way. I could never say enough good things about this podcast. Thank you, Kerry!

Very informative

Thank you for taking time to do these podcasts. They are very helpful.
By the way, our ward just sings hymns for the whole sacrament meeting once or twice a year. Members pick the hymns and then explain why they would like this hymn. It actually is a very spiritual meeting.
