“I remember well the pangs of sorrow that swelled my youthful bosom and almost burst my tender heart when he died. He was the oldest and the noblest of my father’s family. He was one of the noblest of the sons of men.”
-Joseph Smith From the Life of Joseph Smith
When you climb up a ladder, you must begin at the bottom, and ascend step by step, until you arrive at the top; and so it is with the principles of the gospel--you must begin with the first, and go on until you learn all the principles of exaltation. But it will be a great while after you have passed through the veil before you will have learned them. It is not all to be comprehended in this world; it will be a great work to learn our salvation and exaltation even beyond the grave.
-Joseph Smith History of the Church
Shon Hopkin, Professor of Ancient Scripture at Brigham Young University, joins the moderators and studio audience to discuss several topics from the Doctrine and Covenants. They talk about the afterlife, receiving revelation through visions and dreams, and “the noble and great ones.”
