** To finish out last year's notes on the New Testament, I have decided to add this blog post.  Though this is rough and unfinished, it's nearly the end of January and I don't think I'm going to have time to polish it now.  I'd rather have it rough and at least published than not at all. **
More about RevelationRemember how we talked about apocalyptic literature?  Thomas Wayment puts its meaning to the early Saints in context, "There can be no doubt but that the early Christians suffered severe persecution. The book of Revelation itself has been called “persecution literature.” [14] It is helpful to the modern reader to keep in mind that the majority of apocalyptic writings were delivered during times of great duress and persecution.

Best Book of Mormon Resources for Come Follow Me study in 2020

Last night for our family home evening, we talked about our top 10 favorite memories from 2019 and our goals for 2020.  For part of the evening, we all wrote down what our most meaningful personal accomplishments were from the year.  One of mine was the weekly writing I did for the New Testament.  I studied more in depth than I ever had before and I am so grateful for all I learned and was able to share.  I'm so grateful for the support and kindness of those who read and commented on what I wrote.  Thank you.

This year, I have decided not to write weekly, at least not about my scripture study.  Though it was a great exercise for me and was definitely worth the sacrifice, I feel a need to focus more time on some of my other goals.  For instance, I have been trying to learn Portuguese for over 3 years.  At one time, I even had a 900 day streak on Duolingo to prove it.  In 2018, I got halfway through the Book of Mormon in Portuguese and I found my study in a different language opened…
