Doctrine and Covenants and Church History Class Member Study Guide, (1999), 13–14


Reading assignment: Study the scripture passages in the following questions and in the scripture chain.
  • The Lord revealed instructions about how to conduct the School of the Prophets. Read D&C 88:122–25, and identify the things the Lord said the brethren should do and the things He said they should not do. What can we learn from these verses about how to teach one another?

  • What counsel does the Lord give in D&C 88:118 about learning? How does faith increase your ability to learn? What are the dangers of learning without having faith in God and obeying His commandments? (See 2 Timothy 3:7; 2 Nephi 9:28–29.)

  • Read D&C 88:76–80. Why do you think we are commanded to learn about so many different things?
