I love the scriptures!!! Rachel dies and Benjamin is born. Reuben sleeps with Bilhah, his father's concubine. There are things that we will not understand because of the interpretations and precious truths left out of the scriptures. Even this testifies of the plan of salvation for it testifies that man must go forward and seek an understanding of the truthfulness of the scriptures as a whole and not "judge" them to be unworthy because he does not understand them right away.
Isaac dies at 180 years, Esau and Jacob bury him. It appears that Esau will also become a great nation.
Christ teaches that man and woman were meant to be together by God's design. He also speaks of the "hardness" of the heart of man in that God allowed a divorce.
I believe it is easy to put interpretations on the scriptures if one does not look at the whole picture and see that there are many different peoples that Christ spoke to and he taught each of them differently. We need to be seeking the companionship of the Holy Ghost if we are to understand what the scriptures mean for us today.
I do not believe that they will go contrary to the basic standards of the Living Prophet and the scriptures, but I do believe that individually we will receive as much light on a subject as we are willing to receive and live by.
I love verse 17, "why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God: But if thou wilt enter into life keep the commandments". There is a fundamental principle and truth here about humanity at this level of development and that is that we are not capable of being good yet, but we may be obedient and that is where we start. Think about it, this is powerful!
