Elder Bednar explains three different methods for studying scriptures: reading from beginning to end, studying topically and searching for connections, patterns, and themes. Diligently searching to discover connections, patterns, and themes is,in part, what it means to "feast" upon the words of Christ. "This approach can open the floodgates of the spiritual reservoir, enlighten our understanding through His Spirit, and produce a depth of gratitude for the scriptures and a degree of spiritual commitment that can be received in no other way." -- Elder Bednar, transcript.
