We just said goodbye to this great neighbor friend who’s Jewish. We’ve had so many questions for each other and some of the best conversations I’ve had here at school. I also taught the Old Testament in Sunday School last year, so Jewish doctrine has been on my mind a lot lately.
Last week, our Jewish friend invited us to the Harvard Hillel for a real Seder. We walk in, and there were three other Mormons there that we knew from church. 5 Mormons at Seder? Possibly more we didn’t know about? LOVED the Seder.
2 Sticks: Basically, we believe that the two sticks talked about in the Bible are the Jews & the Bible (stick of Judah) and the Mormons & the Book of Mormon (stick of Manassah). We believe that the Bible and the Book of Mormon enhance each other and bear witness of the truth of the other and that together they testify of God, Christ, and teach God’s commandments and plan for us.
The dialogue between Jews & Mormons is alive and open. Here are some that have caught my eye–they help explain the relationship between the two:
