This is Scripture Roundtable 27 from The Interpreter Foundation, in which we discuss Doctrine & Covenants Gospel Doctrine Lesson #23, “Seek Learning, Even by Study and Also by Faith,” focusing on D&C 88, bringing in various insights to help us better understand the scriptures. These roundtables will generally follow the 2013 Gospel Doctrine schedule of scriptures, a few weeks ahead of time.
Some interesting discussion included in this roundtable is:
- The School of the Prophets in Kirtland was a school for both secular and sacred learning.
- D&C 88: 78-80 suggests that both sacred and secular learning were important to prepare for their mission in the world.
- The point of studying from the “best books” is not just to gain knowledge, but wisdom, which, along with the love we develop and relationships we have, are the only things we can take with us into the next life.
