Mosiah 12-17 – Think about prophets who have faced difficulty in carrying out their respective missions. Abinadi faces incredible oppression from Noah’s court and corrupt priests. Why did Abinadi lean on the Law of Moses? Abinadi, like many prophets, seals his testimony with his life.
Mosiah 7-11 – TWiM co-host Al Doan joins the Bonanza this week as we break down the journey of Ammon, the record of the people of Zeniff, and transition into a charming king named Noah who has a run-in with the prophet Adinadi. Major Book of Mormon plot points here, folks. But we also talk about the importance of seers, overcoming endemic hatred, avoiding overzealousness, and allowing faith to work miracles in our hearts.
Isaiah 50-53; Mosiah 14-15 – Erik Johnson joins us for a discussion on the messengers spoken of by Isaiah, as well as the countless prophecies regarding Christ’s atonement taught by Isaiah. These are some of our very favorite passages of scripture and there are tons of valuable insights if you take the time to read and ponder.
Mosiah 12-17 – Abinadi returns to call the people of Noah to repentance. He is rejected and eventually burned to death. How does the Law of Moses prepare us to understand Christ’s atonement? How does Abinadi testify of Christ by using the Law of Moses? How do we keep the words of the scriptures “written on our hearts”?
Mosiah 7-11 – Background on Zeniff’s return to the land of Nephi and the subsequent bondage brought forth by the Lamanites; Why are seers important? Why did the people of King Noah reject Abinadi even when knowing that Noah was wicked? How can we better follow the prophets and trust them as seers and revelators?
