The Temple, a Holy School
The Education in Zion Gallery in BYU's Joseph F. Smith Building houses two murals, standing nearly twenty feet tall. One is of the Kirtland Temple and the other depicts Brigham Young Academy. It is not by accident that these murals face each other, for both represent houses of learning and the importance of the sacrifice involved in educating the whole soul.
Learning and teaching others are important principles for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We teach about Jesus Christ, who is the foundation of a Zion education. He is the source of all light and truth, and as we draw near to him our minds become enlarged, and we experience a desire to share our knowledge and skills so others might also have opportunities to learn and grow.
