We’ve invited two dedicated scriptorians to help us prepare for the 2010 Gospel Doctrine course of study on the Old Testament. Owen Clark will share his thoughts on how to study and teach the Old Testament in a Mormon ward. his presentation consists of an example of what’s to be found in the Old Testament, reflections on the difficulty of a Gospel Doctrine teacher in acquiring more than a superficial overview of the Bible, and an open discussion of what we (this group) do and have done to comprehend and to share this particular book of scripture. Steve Whitlock will focus on the value of the Old Ttestament and some of the recent advances in understanding it as a book of scripture. He will draw specific examples from both the Old Testament and related extracanonical literature as well as modern scholarship.
