178: Lessons in the Wilderness (BoM Gospel Doctrine Lesson 5)

January 30, 2016

Engaging Gospel Doctrine

“Hearken to the Truth, and Give Heed unto It”


Tensions come to a head when Lehi and his family go through their most difficult trials, first during years in the wilderness and then on their journey across the ocean. These chapters have implications about the balance of truth and love, internal vs. external motivation, and the nature of scripture.
