The Church Now and Then
This semester I am teaching New Testament 212 which consists of Acts to Revelation. I love Peter and Paul and all the others we read about in the last half of the New Testament so I am excited about the semester. One of the most interesting things is to see how the early apostles established the Church in the meridian of time and how it parallels exactly the establishment of the Church in the latter-days. Acts to Revelation covers about 30 years of time and from 1830 to 1860 we see the same things happening in the modern Church. It is amazing, and a lot of fun to search out and take note of all the parallels! What a testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His Church.
