A Short Glossary of Obsolete Words in the King James New Testament

This post is actually a re-posting of an article by Eldin Ricks found at LDS.ORG: A Short Glossary of Obsolete Words in the King James New Testament – New Era Apr. 1977 – new-era The reason that I am re-posting this is so that it can be formatted in a way that is more easily shareable on […]

Revelation 1-3, We Shall Overcome!

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/05/20/revelation-1-3-we-shall-overcome/ I use Revelation 1-3 as an exercise in both identifying relevant and applicable principles, as well as understanding how to study the book of Revelation. We start off by reviewing the “EASY” steps/verbs in Revelation 1:3. Next we identified the blessing in Revelation 2:7,11,17,26; 3:5,12,21 that following the pattern should help us to receive. We read (step […]

Revelation: Intro And Overview

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/05/19/revelation-intro-and-overview/ Many members of the Church find the book of Revelation difficult, and the Christian world has been debating about what it means for centuries. I have found that the majority of my students already have a preconceived notion that the book of Revelation is going to be, “hard, long, and boring” (An actual response this year […]

Jude 1, The Fate Of The Apostate! Will You Be An Eagle Or A Hog?

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/05/09/jude-1-the-fate-of-the-apostate-will-you-be-and-eagle-or-a-hog/ We began by having the students fill in the following blank by using a picture rather than words (Journal activity): “The wicked are like… ” I invited those that wanted to to come up and QUICKLY draw their’s on the board. Once we had a few on the board, we discussed each one by completing the BECAUSE… […]

1-3 John, The Gospel Truth Is “Gnot” A Secret!

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/05/08/1-3-peter-the-gospel-truth-is-gnot-a-secret/ I had the title song for “Mission Impossible” (an appropriate version) playing in the background as student entered class. It would be fun to dress in a way that fits the lesson, but I did not have that much forethought… There were TOP SECRET folders on each desk when the students came in (Except for […]

2 Peter 1-3, Ladder-Day Saints

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/2-peter-1-3-ladder-day-saints/ We began by having the Young Women recite the Young Women’s Theme. Then I asked the students to look for one of the values that Peter mentions in 2 Peter 1:1-4. Once they identified “divine nature”, I asked them to explain what it meant. It was surprising to them that they did not really understand what “divine […]

1 Peter 1-5, Peter’S Principles Prepare Peculiar People (2-Day Lesson)

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/1-peter-1-5-peters-principles-prepare-peculiar-people-2-day-lesson/ This was such a success! The positive feedback that I received from the students as a result of this lesson makes me feel that it may have been their best experience all year.  They felt like they could really evaluate where they stand as a member of the Church, and they absolutely LOVED being able […]

James 1-5, Disciples With Gusto Live Life In Crescendo!

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/04/30/james-1-5-disciples-with-gusto-live-life-in-crescendo/ To understand more about how this lesson you will need to read the excerpts that I have included at the end of the post from Grant C. Anderson, “Living a Life in Crescendo” (Religious Educator 5, no. 2 (2004): 19–27). I have edited his talk to include those parts that I felt are relevant to the students […]

James 1-2, “Doers” Just Do!

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/04/30/james-1-2-doers-just-do/ This lesson goes really well this April’s Come Follow Me curriculum on the Restoration. We started off with some background on who James was (see Bible Dictionary, third entry under James and James, Epistle of) so that we could establish some “street cred” and determine the importance his writings may have. How does knowing that he was Christ’s brother (half-brother) […]

Hebrews 11-13, A.w.e.some Faith

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/04/29/hebrews-11-13-a-w-e-some-faith/ To understand the first board you will have to watch part of the video below, “Seek Learning by Faith” by Elder David A. Bednar, from minute 4:00 – 7:15. There is also a great example given by Elder Bednar from minute 7:15 – 8:30. I used minutes 4:00-9:20 with my classes. He teaches this MUCH […]

Hebrews 1-13, 7 Little Words And 1 Big God

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/04/28/hebrews-1-13-7-little-words-and-1-big-god/ I want to start out by giving credit to Back On The Floor Again for the idea for this lesson. I was able to do what I hope other’s do with my posts. That is, I was able to see what was done in their seminary class and tweak it to fit the needs of my students. I […]
