Free lesson: a brief history of the priesthood.

I spent quite a bit of time writing this free lesson plan, but I am afraid the subject is way way too big for a little lesson. Still, hopefully, some of you will find it a good starting point.

There is huge ignorance and confusion about the nature of the pesitshood. But then there is huge confusion about spiritual matters over all.

It is a real shame that we have given up our understanding and embraced a terribly narrow view that all reality is material. For people my age, the confusion was taught to us, and I think, it is largely thanks to the internet that people like me have had access to authentic teaching. Anyway, have a look and see what you think.

Don’t forget to have a look at the other stuff Kalei puts up and leave her a message of encouragement.

  1. Shell,
    That is the first time I’ve looked at some of the stuff you have crafted for homeschooling. It is excellent, truly excellent! What a talent.

    Cain and Abel fascinate me. I’ve often meditated, but never seen it writen down anywhere how profound thier respective priesthoods are. One offers flesh the other wheat. The one who offers wheat is responsible for the first ever death (separation of body and soul) and an act of murder. The one who offers flesh is murdered. It takes the priesthood of Melchizedek, King of Salem, to sanctify the offfering of Cain, but it takes Christ the King to reconcile the two sacrificial offerings through his own death and resurrection and the Eucharist.

    Also, thank you so much for your generosity. Your gift shall be multiplied as God wills and as God pleases….my prayers to you and yours.

  2. I realise the more I write these lessons the more I have to start with Adam and Eve, and then Cain and Abel. They really are the root of so much that is important in our understanding of our own humanity and why Christ had to be human to redeem us.
    I was taught that the stories at the beginning of Genesis were little more than fairy tales, with little to tell us, other than the fact that people sin – or rather, make mistakes. It is, the message went, nothing more than a primative (unenlightened) people’s attempt to explain why bad things happen.
    But it is plainly a much much deeper and more important story of inspired Scripture than that.
    There is so much there.
    God bless
    I’m still praying.
