New Scripture Mastery Better Aligns with Basic Doctrines

According to the Seminary website, the basic doctrines of the gospel are:

The Godhead
Plan of Salvation
Atonement of Jesus Christ
Dispensation, Apostasy, and Restoration
Prophets and Revelation
Priesthood and Priesthood Keys
Ordinances and Covenants
Marriage and Family

The idea to update the scripture mastery lists was first mentioned in 2008 and then taken more seriously in 2010 when the first committee was formed, Brother Webb explained. The process started with a team from the Curriculum Department evaluating the current scripture mastery passages and looking for ways to align them more closely with the basic doctrines.
