Episode 85: Moses 7
/

Ben is joined by guest Dan Meehan in a discussion of Moses 7, the second half of the canonized “Book of Enoch”. In his vision of the divine, Enoch sees a God who expresses emotion and feels sorrow. Enoch experiences the vastness of eternity and comes to know the bitterness of hell, as well as a fullness of joy. This chapter touches on some difficult themes that are often related to racism in scripture. What might these verses have meant to the early Saints and what can they mean to us today? Zion is taken up in process of time and Dan proposes an alternate interpretation of this concept that fits well with the common scriptural narratives of testimony and non-violence.
