I have the opportunity to give an Enrichment lesson on gospel scholarship. I thought I would pose a couple questions to people who are definitely more experienced than I in this subject.
What is gospel scholarship? More specifically what should it mean to regular members of the church who may not have a career that allows them to spend vast amounts of time in the scriptures? What is the goal of pursuing knowledge of the gospel?
What topics would you address if you had 30-40 minutes to spend on this topic?
How would you teach?
Part of my instruction was to discuss ways to study the scriptures, how to make the most of the features within the scriptures (footnotes, topical guide, etc.), and external resources (books, magazines, online resources).
What do you think?
