Class 12: Scattering of the People

Class 12: Scattering of the People

During the next several weeks, we will discuss both the scattering of Israel and the gathering.  This is a very involved and broad subject and will require outside study to have a better idea of what is involved.  I will seek to provide scriptures to guide our studies.

How many times were people scattered in the scriptures and what was the reason they were scattered?

Why is it important to study about the scattering and the gathering?
