  2. I enjoyed first listening to, and then studying this article. I gained insight into the expanded role of the Levites beyond sacrificial service. I also appreciated learning more about the role of the Levitical Priesthood in administering justice. Thanks

  3. Joshua Berman suggests from the Talmud a temple theme in the meaning of the word “Moriah” because of its relationship to hora’ah, which means instruction (page 69). This is complementary to Matthew Brown, who in his June 21, 2013 Interpreter article demonstrated a temple theme in the word “Moriah” because it contains the Hebrew verb rāʾâ (to “see”). These themes could probably both be found in the similar Nephite word, “Cumorah.”
