Enos, Jarom, Omni, Words of Mormon – The segue chapters! But there is a ton of great stuff as we transition from Jacob and the people of Nephi to Mosiah and the people of Zarahemla. Jeff King is with us to break down historical context, as well as the valuable spiritual lessons to be gleaned from these terrific, if short chapters.
Mosiah 29; Alma 1-4 – What are good principles of government? Why did the Sons of Mosiah refuse to be kings? What did Alma face as Chief Judge? The pride cycle commences. How can we avoid pride and elect righteous leaders?
Mosiah 25-28; Alma 36 – Alma and Limhi unify with the Nephites; Alma organizes the Church; Alma the Younger and the Sons of Mosiah lead away many before being struck dumb and repenting. How can we be truly converted to the Gospel? What does it mean to fully repent?
Enos, Jarmon, Omni, WoM – We break down the organization of the large and small plates, the prophetic line, and record-keeper line. Enos prays for himself, the Nephites, and the Lamanites, and receives a remission of his sins and knowledge of God’s love; the Mulekites meet Mosiah and his followers; Mormon abridges the different plates.
