Old Testament lesson 8: Living Righteously in a Wicked World

Here is the next Gospel Doctrine lesson.  It includes a link to my in depth study of Abraham and Melchizedek (including Nag Hammadi, Dead Sea Scrolls, etc), and a discussion on Sodom and Gomorrah.


The message?  Flee away from Sodom and go to the New Jerusalem.

  1. As I note in my earlier post on the lesson, one tradition has it that Abraham fled to Noah’s house when Nimrod sought to slay him. So, in Abraham 1, when it says he sought his fathers, it may be that he literally did so!
