  1. Joseph just received an “F” for his Bible translation project and is being sent to the principal’s office to discuss further penalties…………

  2. To supplement your conclusion that Joseph Smith’s claim of what he was doing– restoring by revelation– vs what he was really doing– following Adam Clark’s commentary– you might summarize what Joseph’s “revelations” in the D&C say about the JST. The Lord really heavily “prompted” him to get this done.

  3. The phrase “many are cold, but few are frozen.” alone made this podcast worthwhile. Although I find that the Adam Clarke JST plaigirism a bit like old news by now. At least for those of us in the know circles.

    At church, well, I almost feel like I don’t know what is going on at church anymore even though I’m still active in a COVIDLY type of way.
