Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

The old testament was the book of scripture Christ loved, studied, and quoted

I know Christ quoted scripture constantly, but I find it kind of fun to run into which scripture he was quoting. So we have

Deuteronomy 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.

It is fun to ponder the scriptures knowing that the Savior pondered the same verses. Many of us think little of the old testament, but those were the very scriptures Christ studied and loved. When Christ said "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God" he was not only quoting the Old Testament, he was also referring to it.
