About the Event
The John A. Widtsoe Foundation is deeply committed to elevating dialogue between members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and other religious communities. In this pre-recorded podcast and video series, Robert Millet will host a monthly conversation with three Christian scholars: Mark Maddix a Nazarene Wesleyan scholar, Peter Huff, a Catholic Scholar, and Craig Blomberg, an Evangelical Scholar. Each month, Millet will draw from the Come, Follow Me New Testament curriculum to help listeners gain a deeper appreciation for New Testament passages and the beliefs we share (and sometimes differ on) with members of each of these Christian denominations.
The next podcast release date is May 20th, and Brother Millet will be joined by Evangelical guest Craig Blomberg. The pair will discuss The Olivet Discourse and Parables of Preparation from the New Testament Come, Follow Me curriculum in May, as found in Matthew 24-25 (corresponding with CFM 5/22-28)
This podcast will be available on May 20th on our Podcast page for download or listening.
The pre-recorded video of this event will also be available on YouTube on May 20th.
