107: Temple, Law, and Reform; OT Lesson 30 (Mini-Episode)

“Come to the House of the Lord”

The assigned scriptures speak of temple and Law, but the underlying lesson is one of reform and resolution, making changes and becoming better. I suggest keeping the discussion points in mind as you read and prepare:

  • What is proper worship? What does God really care about when it comes to religious practice?
  • How can we renew rituals in our own lives, take opportunities to engage more fully in practices that increase our well-being and spirituality?
  • What do we learn from Josiah’s response to the book of the law? How do we respond when new information illuminates the ways we can improve?
  • How scriptures and other sources can inspire us to improve
  • The examples of Hezekiah, Manasseh and Josiah could lead to a discussion about learning from good examples in our family history and overcoming the bad, doing better than previous generations
