I want to get his post out of the way because I am teaching Romans after General Conference, and I want to get this clear in my mind, even if I don’t touch on it in my lesson.

I loved this lesson – I concentrated on chapters 1 through 6:2. This is simply great stuff.
Mostly this outline is selected portions of the material in three different translations, with a few questions at the end of each section. I think we read Paul so little, even reading these sections and attempting to understand them is a giant step forward for many.
The link to my notes is here: NT Lesson 35 – 2 Corinthians

Scripture is an example of optimal teaching. Paul was an exemplary teacher. Paul, as well as many other scriptural authors, used what I’m terming the Socratic Method as he taught. An example of this is found in 1 Corinthians 12:14-31 as Paul teaches the Corinthians about the diversity of spiritual gifts. Many other examples of this methodology are found throughout the LDS cannon of scripture, including Korihor, the Antichrist. :)

I recently listened to a very interesting conversation on Alma 32 between Kim Matheson, Mike Berkey and Joe Spencer (available as a podcast here). Below are some of my thoughts, largely inspired by their discussion. Read the rest of this entry »

I thought I would break this entire subject into subheads, beginning with this one. This subject may not be as fun and compelling as some that might follow, but I think it’s important for us to think about how we read Paul, and how we read scripture generally.

In 1996 when I was studying Paul in an institute class under Mack Stirling, I remember thinking, and telling Mack, that wonderful as Paul sometimes is, I wished all his letters had been lost because over the centuries and even within our time so much evil had been done in Paul’s name. I expressed then that all the good that Paul’s letters have done/were doing/could do could never balance against the evil and suffering perpetrated with his writings as justification.
