Nephiís Prophesies

One Week of Studies
  1. Recite 2 Nephi 2:25.
    Read 2 Nephi 25:1-19.
    • Verse 1: You just finished reading a lot of Isaiahís writings. If you found much of it hard to understand, donít worry. Many people have difficulty with Isaiahís writings. As you continue to have a habit of scripture study throughout your life, you will read and re-read Isaiah and each time it will have more meaning for you.
    • Verse 4: We can learn more from Isaiah by revelation through the Holy Ghost.
    • Verse 5: Are you delighted by Isaiahís words?
    • Verse 7: When will Isaiahís prophesies be obvious to people?
    • Verse 8: For whom did Nephi write all the Isaiah chapters?
    • Verses 12-19: This is about Jesus. While Christ is mentioned on nearly every page in the Book of Mormon, verses 19 & 20 actually use the name Jesus, which is rarely used in the Book of Mormon.

  2. Recite 2 Nephi 2:27.
    Read 2 Nephi 25:20-30.
    • Verse 20: This is Nephiís testimony.

  3. Recite 2 Nephi 9:28-29.
    Read 2 Nephi 26:1-13.
    • Nephi tells what it will be like for the Nephites at the time of Jesusí birth, death, and resurrection. What can we learn about pride from these verses?

  4. Recite 1 Nephi 19:23.
    Read 2 Nephi 26:14-33.
    • Verse 14: Now Nephi is talking about our day.
    • Verses 16 & 17: The people who were destroyed speak to us today in the Book of Mormon.
    • Verse 32: Sounds like the Ten Commandments. Compare this verse to Exodus 20:3-17.

  5. Recite 1 Nephi 19:23.
    Read 2 Nephi 27:1-18.
    • These are Isaiahís words about the Book of Mormon. You can compare this chapter to Isaiah 29.
    • Verse 2: These are the last days. There are more natural disasters now than ever.
    • Verses 3 & 4: Those that fight against Zion will be unfulfilled.
    • Verse 6: The book is the Book of Mormon. Underline the word book and write Book of Mormon in the margin.
    • Verse 9: The man referred to here is Joseph Smith.
    • Verse 12: Remember the Testimony of the Three Witnesses at the front of the Book of Mormon?
    • Verses 13 & 24: Remember the Testimony of the Eight Witnesses?
    • Verses 15-18: To read the interesting story of the fulfillment of this prophecy, read Joseph Smith-History 1:63-65.

  6. Recite Moroni 7:16-17.
    Read 2 Nephi 27:19-35.
    • Verse 19: The man who is not learned is Joseph Smith. He did not have very many years in formal schooling.
    • Verse 25: This would be people who go through the motions (going to church, saying repeated prayers, etc.) but donít have a deep testimony.
    • Verse 26: The "Marvelous work and a wonder" is the coming forth of the Book of Mormon and the restoration of the gospel.
    • Verse 29: This is talking about spiritual deafness and blindness. Those that read the Book of Mormon will hear and see the things of God.
    • Verse 31: This has not happened yet to the world, but it can happen to us individually. If we diligently seek the things of the Kingdom, there will be no place for evil.
