  1. I think the abomination of desolation ultimately refers to the desecration of the mysteries. When the temple is breached by the profane the spirit leaves and renders it desolate which, in turn, renders the mysteries meaningless. And so, what do we do? We head for the hills or the mountains which signifies the need to find the “Mountain of the Lord” or the mysteries in our own hearts in spite of the world’s abuse of them.

  2. Rest assured that we are out here listening. These are really excellent commentaries and I find them of much use in presenting GD lessons.

    Also, on a previous podcast I mentioned that sometimes the quality of the sound was poor (lots of echo). That has much improved over the last 5 or 6 presentations. Thank you.

  3. Dan – just a note on your comments on eagles and carrion. Please be aware that carrion is a key part of the eagle’s diet. They will eat carrion even as a vulture will. However, a significant part of their diet is met by hunting fresh fish as well. The eagle plucking the fish from water is a much more glamorous sight, and hence is much more widely portrayed. Any quick search using “eagle” and “carrion” will lead you to numerous sites that confirm that eagles are more than happy to partake of carrion.

  4. Just a quick question of curiosity. Where is Jeff sitting? Is he in a van? An airplane? I also love your conversations about the GD lessons. I usually listen to you first, then read the lesson, and then read the scriptures and suddenly all sorts of things are jumping out. It makes more sense to me in that order. Thanks so much.
