Dr. Anthony Sweat is both an artist and a professor of church history at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. He discusses how the translation of the Book of Mormon has been depicted in the past, how he went about depicting it, and LDS artwork in general.
Do Mormons believe in grace? There was a time when it seemed that the concept of grace separated us from other Christian sects. But as Dr. Brad Wilcox explains, the LDS Church has taught grace from its very beginnings. The concept is found throughout the Book of Mormon, and we sing about it in many hymns. Maybe it is time that we start talking more about grace and what it can do in our lives.
You may have heard discussions about the historical Jesus and wondered exactly what that term means. Often we concentrate most of our studies on the teachings of Jesus and Jesus as our Savior, but there is value in studying who Jesus was as a man born in Jerusalem over 2000 years ago. What kind of clothes did he wear? What did he like to eat? What kinds of things made him angry? Dr. Thomas Wayment chats with Laura Harris Hales about the value of looking for the historical Jesus in our study of the New Testament.
