Ep 42 | Enos – Words of Mormon, Come Follow Me 2020 (Mar 23-29)
Play • 44 min

0:35 – Enos: What you teach your kids matters. Prayer can be a wrestle between what we desire and what we need. Adding “but if not” into our prayers can help us.

16:02 – Jarom: Righteousness is much more important than any weapon.

17:15 – Omni: Who are the Mulekites? Multiple models are presented to explain their loss of language. The lack of scripture impacted their culture. Small traditions can change nations.

21:19 – Where did the Book of Mormon take place?

32:25 – Words of Mormon: For a wise purpose two copies of the record are made. Evidence that Heavenly Father is aware of what was needed 2400 years in advance. The Lord knoweth all things which are to come. He can get people and things in the right place at the right time. He is involved in the details of our lives.

You can read Matt Bowen’s article about Enos’ name and how it was used as a paronomastic wordplay, or pun here. I really liked Bowen’s work in this article! I briefly discuss why this technique was used by the authors of the text in this article. You can access Elder Rasband’s Oct. 2017 conference message “By Divine Design” here.

Matthew J. Grow, Managing Director of the Church History Department, on connecting to the people in the Doctrine and Covenants through historical exploration
In the year 2021, as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints study the Doctrine and Covenants, it is important to remember that the book is a compilation of revelations given to early prophets in answer to prayer as they worked to restore the gospel of Jesus Christ. Understanding the people and historical context of the book is key to unlocking the vital spiritual lessons found in its pages. Guest Matthew J. Grow, managing director of the Church History Department, discusses how learning Church history and exploring resources like The Joseph Smith Papers, the “Saints” book series and “Come, Follow Me” can help members connect more to the historic and spiritual record — and discover that these early Saints are more like us than we may have thought before.   The Church News Podcast is a weekly podcast that invites listeners to make a journey of connection with members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across the globe. Host Sarah Jane Weaver, reporter and editor for The Church News for a quarter-century, shares a unique view of the stories, events, and most important people who form this international faith. With each episode, listeners are asked to embark on a journey to learn from one another and ponder, “What do I know now?” because of the experience. Produced by KellieAnn Halvorsen.
