The New Testament

I love the New Testament. I am teaching the Gospels this semester (2018), and so will be adding material as we go through the text in class. You can look forward to new posts in the upcoming weeks.

I love the witnesses of the Savior Jesus Christ that are contained in the pages of the New Testament record. I want to add my witness that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah spoken of and prophesied of by both Old Testament and Book of Mormon prophets as well. As I continue to add material to this section, I welcome feedback, as well as questions relating to the Gospels. Thank you for visiting!
