Redeeming the Endowment: A Christological Exegesis

The purpose of this presentation is to provide a cogent, coherent, and internally consistent interpretation of the Mormon temple endowment ceremony as a Christian sacrament while avoiding its rejection either as a mere fiction plagiarized from Royal Arch Masonry or as a random cluster of symbols open to private interpretation by free-association. The presentation focuses on the Gods of the temple, the temple rituals, and their relationship to the Christ myth.
