Gospel Doctrine Lesson 41: “I Have Made Thee This Day … an Iron Pillar”

Lesson Helps

The current lesson uses the biography of Jeremiah to teach the principle of faithfulness in times of oppression and adversity. Ezra C. Dalby’s Land and Leaders of Israel: Lessons in the Old Testament (Salt Lake City: Church Department of Education, 1930), a seminary textbook in use in the 1930s and ‘40s,uses the book of Jeremiah to teach the same lesson – but instead of focusing on the prophet himself, Dalby emphasizes the heroism of the Ethiopian slave who saved Jeremiah’s life
