Scripture Chains


Over the last several years, I have enjoyed compiling ‘scripture chains’, which are lists or collections of scriptures that apply to a given topic.  I have devised a system in my scriptures that allows me to ‘follow’ a given chain that links my favorite scriptures on a given topic.  Thinking that some might find these chains useful, I now share them on my website.  This page will be ‘under construction’ for many months into the future.  Simply click on the light blue topic heading to navigate to the appropriate chain.  If you find these chains interesting, I would recommend that you check out the Bruce Barton Scripture Kit website.  Some of my chains are loosely adapted from the great scripture lists that Bruce Barton has compiled.

Following each listed scripture, you will find a letter and a number.  B = Bible, M = Book of Mormon, D = Doctrine and Covenants, and P = Pearl of Great Price.  The number is the page number of the associated Standard Work wherein the scripture is located.  The page numbers correlate with the standard editions of the LDS scriptures.  The lists do not always start in the Bible and move through to the Pearl of Great Price.  A list can start or end in any one of the Standard Works.  Following each title on the various pages, you will also see another letter and number.  These are simply to help me with cataloging my chains

Chapter Six of ‘Preach My Gospel’ is dedicated to the development of Christ-like Attributes.  Nine attributes are emphasized.  Many scriptures are used to describe, define, and clarify these beautiful attributes, so prominent in the Savior’s life.  I have ‘chained’ the scriptures listed with each attribute.  They are included in the listing below but can also be found specifically by clicking HERE.  The nine attributes are: 1) Faith in Jesus Christ  2) Hope  3) Charity and love  4) Virtue  5) Knowledge  6) Patience  7) Humility  8) Diligence  9) Obedience.

President Spencer W. Kimball wrote a classic book dealing with repentance and forgiveness entitled ‘Miracle of Forgiveness’.  It was originally published in 1969.  President Kimball relied heavily upon modern and ancient scripture as he wrote his book.  I have “chained” the scriptures that he cited regarding the many topics discussed in the book.  Click here to explore these chains.

During my mission to New Zealand in 1971-1972, I obtained a copy of “THE TRIAL”, a booklet produced by the Auckland Stake Mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  It presents a mock trial in which representatives of the Church of Jesus Christ and representatives of other Christian religions discuss doctrinal differences. I have chained the scriptures used in this booklet as they pertain to the major areas of discussions.  Click here to explore these chains.
