Join hosts Ganel-Lyn Condie and John Fossum as they discuss impactful topics from this week’s Come, Follow Me lesson covering Exodus 35-40 and Leviticus chapters 1, 16, and 19.  Explore these themes, topics and questions: 

  • How to access the power of the temple in our lives?
  • What is our “offering of gold” unto the Lord?
  • The origins and symbolism of sacred temple clothing.
  • What does it mean to think of our homes and the temple as a “pillar of a cloud”?
  • The symbols of Jesus Christ as they relate to Levitical temple rituals
  • Can we learn how to let our sins go and instead use our energy to focus on becoming like God?
  • Jesus Christ as the High Priest.

Invitation:

Consider the role the temple plays in your life right now.  Ask yourself this question: how will I better utilize the temple and its covenants to draw closer to God?

Brigham Young Quote: “The Lord called upon Moses, and he stood amid the thunders and lightnings of Mount Sinai. Moses was a good and great man, but he had lived with and so often been aggravated by a wicked, murmuring, and rebellious people that he could not look upon God in his glory, [Ex. 33:17-23] but he could hear his voice and converse with his Heavenly Father in the pillar of cloud and fire. [Deut. 4:12]” [JD 9:308, Brigham Young, The Kingdom of God.]

Joseph Smith Quote: “Go to and finish the temple, and God will fill it with power, and you will then receive more knowledge concerning this priesthood.” -Joseph Smith [Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 323]

Seminary OT Teacher Manual: “Sacred religious clothing has been used symbolically since the Lord made “coats of skins” for Adam and Eve before they were cast out of the Garden of Eden (see Genesis 3:21). When Moses was on Mount Sinai for 40 days, the Lord revealed to him details concerning the tabernacle as well as the sacred clothing that was to be worn by the priests who would serve in the tabernacle.” (Seminary OT Teacher Manual, Lesson 53: Exodus 28–29; 31, also quoted in Real Talk Journal, pg 52)

Elder Nelson Quote: “Learn to listen, and listen to learn from neighbors.Opportunities to listen to those of diverse religious or political persuasion can promote tolerance and learning. And a good listener will listen to a person’s sentiments as well.” [1991–A:22, Russell M. Nelson, Listen to Learn]
