Transcript of D&C 88: 70-141

School of the Prophets
D&C 88 118-141
The School of the Prophets met in the upper room of the Newel K. Whitney store until the Kirtland Temple was built.
In Kirtland, Ohio, in the winter of 1832–33, the Lord commanded a group of priesthood leaders to meet together in what was called the School of the Prophets to prepare themselves to preach the gospel among the nations of the earth. The Lord commanded this group to remain in Kirtland and learn from each other.
What are some things you have recently learned about in school and in church?
How is learning about school subjects, such as math and science, different from learning about gospel subjects?
How is it the same?
D&C 88:118
look for how those who attended the School for the Prophets were to seek learning. (Mark what you find)
Elder Bednar

“As learners, you and I are to act and be doers of the word and not simply hearers who are only acted upon. Are you and I agents who act and seek learning by faith, or are we waiting to be taught and acted upon? …

“… Learning by faith requires spiritual, mental, and physical exertion and not just passive reception. It is in the sincerity and consistency of our faith-inspired action that we indicate to our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, our willingness to learn and receive instruction from the Holy Ghost. …

“… Learning by faith requires both ‘the heart and a willing mind’ (D&C 64:34). Learning by faith is the result of the Holy Ghost carrying the power of the word of God both unto and into the heart. Learning by faith cannot be transferred from an instructor to a student … ; rather, a student must exercise faith and act in order to obtain the knowledge for himself or herself” (“Seek Learning by Faith,” Ensign, Sept. 2007, 64).
a. A young woman regularly reads the scriptures, but she rarely pauses to think about what she is reading. She doesn’t feel that reading the scriptures benefits her very much.
A young man attends his Church meetings and enjoys participating in class discussions. Sometimes he feels prompted to make changes in his life based on what he learns, but he usually does not act on those promptings
D&C 88: Vs. 121-126
How were they to conduct themselves in the school of prophets.
What do you think it means to “cease from all your light speeches, from all laughter, … and light-mindedness”
This counsel, however, does not mean that all laughter is sinful. With regard to laughter, President Gordon B. Hinckley told the youth of the Church:

“You can have a good time. Of course you can! We want you to have fun. We want you to enjoy life. … We want you to be robust and cheerful, to sing and dance, to laugh and be happy.

“But in so doing, be humble and be prayerful, and the smiles of heaven will fall upon you” (“A Prophet’s Counsel and Prayer for Youth,” Ensign, Jan. 2001, 11).
88:124 How can sleeping longer than is needful affect our ability to learn or feel the Spirit?
88:124 Scripture Mastery. Key word: DSL (Make sure this verse is marked)

In what ways can getting a proper amount of sleep and rising early help us learn better?
Scan Vs. 122 and notice the repetition with the word ALL.

How do you think a class would be affected if All the students participated in the lesson and tried to learn from each other?

According to Vs. 137, what did the Lord promise if members of the School of the Prophets would follow His instructions?
The Lord expected the members of the School of the Prophets to establish good relationships with each other as they learned together.
How do you think we can show "a determination that is fixed, immovable, and unchangeable, to be a friend" to class or family members whom we may not know well or may struggle to love?
Reading for Tuesday: D&C 89
(Diet Divine) Sleep well and be prepared to learn together.
