Jesus The Christ – Study GuideJTC_book


Richard Neitzel Holzapfel and Thomas A. Wayment have written a study guide to James E. Talmage’s Jesus The Christ commemorating the 100-year anniversary of its publication. They presented an overview during Education Week (2015). I picked up the book and will share some thoughts from their writings.

Savings Truths Never Go Unopposed
Joseph F. McConkie

The greater the truth, the greater the heresy standing against it.

The 1st missionaries in Great Britain saw the heavens filled with legions of Lucifer’s angels marching against them and became worried.  As they left their home they looked into the skies and on the one side of the heavens were the dark soldiers while on the other side, an even greater army of soldiers filled with light marched against them.  Heber C. Kimball asked the prophet if they had done anything wrong to which Joseph answered no, the army of Lucifer will always array itself against truth.  The closer we get to God, the greater the adversary.
