TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

How do we know what we are told about Jesus is the truth. What are the facts and what are the sources for those facts? How do we know the same about the founder of Mormonism, Joseph Smith?  These are the topics Tom Hobson explores in his new book, The Historical Jesus and the Historical Joseph Smith, which we talk about on this week's episode. These are core issues with far-reaching implications.  And after listening, don't forget to check out the show notes where we will have links to many of the resources we talk about in this episode.

SCRIPTURAL REFERENCES

  • By grace you are saved (Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • The two shall become one flesh (Genesis 2:24)
  • The woman at the well (John 4)

QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE

The information in the gospels shows you don’t have to have religious faith in order to believe them. Internally they are recognized to be consistent and true from external sources. ~Tom

Faithful LDS members have to decide, “Is this God commanding it?” and “Can we trust a God and a prophet that’s telling us stuff?” ~Tom
