Lesson 1 focuses on authority. Some claim reason, experience, emotions, or tradition as the ultimate determiner of truth. Jesus says, “Your word is truth” (John 17:17). This lesson establishes the Bible—the book God breathed out—as the ultimate authority on God, people, and truth itself.
Lesson 2 asks the question, “What does the Bible tell us about God?” The Bible separates everything and everyone into one of two categories: Creator or creature. This lesson describes God’s absolute uniqueness (i.e., there is only one God) and the eternal dangers of worshiping creatures rather than the Creator.
Lesson 4 explains how the LDS Church defines salvation and then provides a biblical explanation of salvation. Jesus is the only one who can save us from our sin and God’s eternal wrath. Biblically, salvation is necessary, individual, complete, gracious, substitutionary, immediate, and transformational.
