Scripture Roundtable 30: D&C Gospel Doctrine Lesson 26, “Go Ye into All the World, and Preach My Gospel”

(Originally published on 12 June 2013.)

This is Scripture Roundtable 30 from The Interpreter Foundation, in which we discuss Doctrine & Covenants Gospel Doctrine Lesson #26, “Go Ye into All the World, and Preach My Gospel,” focusing on D&C 42, 88, and 142, bringing in various insights to help us better understand the scriptures. These roundtables will generally follow the 2013 Gospel Doctrine schedule of scriptures, a few weeks ahead of time.

Some of the interesting discussion in this roundtable includes:

  • Ideas, implicit within D&C 112, dealing with the theological nature of God and his characteristics, and their influence on missionary work then and now.
  • Historical context of the Kirtland period and the missionary work then to both expand the Church, even during hardship, and counter anti-Mormon sentiments put out by apostates, particularly Ezra Booth.

Panelists for this roundtable include Andrew Smith, Robert Boylan, and Martin Tanner.

This roundtable is also available as an audio podcast, and will be included in the podcast feed. You can listen by pressing the play button or download the podcast below:


One thought on “Scripture Roundtable 30: D&C Gospel Doctrine Lesson 26, “Go Ye into All the World, and Preach My Gospel”

  1. Thank you for an excellent roundtable. I was wondering if the reference given by Martin Tanner about the chart showing the correlation between anti-Mormon efforts and church growth rates could be posted. I’ve tried a search at FARMS/Maxwell Institute and so far haven’t found it.

    Thanks again.
