Brother Dunford

Fall 2022

Symbolism & Covenants; 399r-5

Syllabus

Course Overview:

Nephi said that the writings of Isaiah were "hard" for his people to understand, because they "know not concerning the manner of prophesying among the Jews" (2 Ne. 25:1). Such could be said of many latter-day saints and the language of symbolism. Yet in the most sacred rooms of the Restoration, the Lord speak the language of symbolism. This class will explore how to better see and apply gospel symbols; especially those associated with modern covenants. Our goal is to draw closer to the Savior by better understanding His Symbols.

What to Expect:

Brother Dunford's style is mostly presentation. His goal is to cover a breadth and depth of the scriptures that you have not seen; such that you walk away from class each day saying, "I've never made that connection before!"

Participation by students is voluntary and appreciated, but not expected. You will never be called upon to speak, but if you raise your hand, your response will be welcomed and your insight valued.

This course is quite fluid. Brother Dunford will bring a suggested outline of topics to discuss, but that outline can and will be adjusted to meet the needs and desires of the class. Students are encouraged to suggest topics they would like discussed.
