The 2014 Temple on Mount Zion Conference in memory of Matthew Brown, held October 25th was an enormous success. It brought together many great minds who took various creative and insightful approaches to the topic of the ancient temple. I was very happy to be a part of it. For those of you who could not make it, video recordings of the proceedings will soon be available on www.mormoninterpreter.com.
For those who were present and heard my presentation, you know that I only got to about half of my slides before I ran out of time. I had a lot to say on this topic and tried to whittle down the presentation, but ended up not being able to get through it all. I apologize to all those who were interested in hearing me develop my thesis fully. My hope is that the paper will be published in full in an upcoming publication of the conference proceedings. For now, I am going to post here the full Power Point presentation so that anyone interested can at least see all of the slides that I had prepared to present.
If there is anything in the slides that does not make sense to you, please feel free to leave questions in the comments. Here are the slides (you can click on the “expand” icon in the bottom-right corner of the presentation to see it larger):
