scripture-study-young-manLatter-day Saints are counseled to study the scriptures daily and apply Biblical teachings in their lives as they seek to live as disciples of Jesus Christ.

In weekly Sunday School classes, Mormons study the Old Testament for a year, then the New Testament in the following year.

Latter-day Saints believe in an open scriptural canon, which means that there are other books of scripture besides the Bible and that God continues to reveal His word through living prophets. Therefore, Sunday School study also includes a year of study of the Book of Mormon, which is the scriptural account of God’s dealings with His people in the ancient American continent.

The fourth year of study in the Sunday School curriculum is about modern scriptures: the Doctrine and Covenants (revelations from the Lord to the Prophet Joseph Smith and to a few other latter-day prophets) and the Pearl of Great Price (extracts from Joseph Smith’s Translation of the Bible, a translation of Egyptian papyri containing the writings of the prophet Abraham, excerpts from Joseph Smith’s testimony and history, and the Articles of Faith).

Latter-day Saint youth also study the scriptures in their daily seminary classes during high school, and in college-level institute classes.
