Come, Follow Me Podcast #8 “Blessed are Ye”, Matthew 5, Luke 6

The Sermon on the Mount was called by President Joseph Fielding Smith, “The greatest sermon that was ever preached, so far as we know,” and President Harold B. Lee called it “the constitution for a perfect life”. In this 30-minute podcast, Scot and Maurine Proctor explore the rich meanings behind the Sermon on the Mount that invite us to change the entire way we consider life.

Come, Follow Me Podcast #7 “Ye Must Be Born Again”, John 2-4

CLICK HERE for this episode or LISTEN BELOW:

John’s gospel is so beautifully structured to reveal eternal truths to his audience who are Church members. One story reinforces and points back or forward to the next. For instance, both the wedding at Cana and the visit to Nicodemus at night are teaching the same thing—an idea the casual reader might miss.

Come, Follow Me Podcast #6 “The Spirit of the Lord is Upon Me”, Matthew 4; Luke 4-5

CLICK HERE for this episode or LISTEN BELOW:

Jesus goes into the wilderness, fasting for 40 days, to commune with his Father, and then when he is famished, Satan comes upon him with temptation. As the arch liar who has eons of practice, he uses types of temptations on the Savior, which he also uses on all of us. What these are and how the Savior resists him is a profound teaching for us all.
