(Originally published on 11 August 2013.)

This is Scripture Roundtable 39 from The Interpreter Foundation, in which we discuss Doctrine & Covenants Gospel Doctrine Lesson #35, “A Mission of Saving,” focusing on D&C 4, 18, 52, 81, and 138, as well as 3 Nephi 18, and Moroni 7, 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.

Panelists for this roundtable include Martin TannerCraig Foster, Daniel Peterson, and Stephen Smoot.

Some highlights from this roundtable include:

  • Craig Foster’s substantial historical introduction to, and commentary upon, the story of the handcart pioneers.
  • Recurring themes in the scriptures and in sacred history, of exodus and of divine deliverance, and about what we today can learn from the pioneers and their steadfast endurance.
  • Latter-day Saints having a pioneer-like experience traveling from their homes in Cameroon to the Aba Nigeria Temple.  Here is one place where it can be found:
