-XXVI-
Ammon

One Week of Studies
  1. Recite Moroni 7:16-17.
    Read Alma 17:1-17.
    • Verse 1: Remember the sons of Mosiah? They were with Alma when they were younger and preaching against the church. Way back in Mosiah 28 we read about the sons of Mosiah leaving to preach in Lehi-Nephi, the Lamanite land. Now we will find out what happened with them. Put Manti on the map.
    • Verses 2 & 3: The sons of Mosiah were great missionaries. These verses explain why. You can do the same things to prepare yourself to do missionary work. Underline these things.
    • Verse 5: Our missionaries have it easy compared to what the sons of Mosiah went through.
    • Verse 6: Now we go back in time to read what happened with the sons of Mosiah since they left Zarahemla.
    • Verses 11 & 12: The Lord told them that they would suffer, but they were very brave.
    • Verse 13: They were brave because they trusted the Lord.


  2. Recite 2 Nephi 2:25.
    Read Alma 17:18-39.
    • Verse 19: Put the land of Ishmael on the map.
    • Verses 24 & 25: Wow! It's a great honor to marry the king's wife, but that's not why Ammon was there. He wanted to serve the king. Some of the greatest missionary work is done throught service.
    • Verse 29: Wow again! Ammon was happy to receive a challenge. What a great example. When bad things happen to you, so you let fear control your thoughts and actions, or do you allow faith to show you how to make the best out of the situation?


  3. Recite 2 Nephi 2:27.
    Read Alma 18:1-16.
    • Verses 8-10: Ammon did exactly as he was commanded.
    • Verse 16: The ability to know what someone is thinking is a gift of the Holy Ghost. For a list of more gifts of the spirit, read Moroni 10:8-17.


  4. Recite 2 Nephi 9:28-29.
    Read Alma 18:16-43.
    • Verses 24-39: Notice how much of what Ammon taught is the same as the missionaries teach now days.
    • Verses 40 & 41: As soon as the king heard the truth, he humbles himself and wanted to be forgiven of his sins. When you've made a mistake, do you humble yourself and ask for forgiveness?


  5. Recite 2 Nephi 28:7-9.
    Read Alma 19:1-16.
    • Verse 10: Her faith is greater than any of the Nephites' faith? What is her faith based on?
    • Verses 12 & 13: The first thing the king did when he woke up was to testify of Christ.
    • Verses 13-16: All this falling down seems very strange. It seems as though their spirits were so flooded with the Holy Ghost that their bodies were overwhelmed.


  6. Recite 2 Nephi 32:3.
    Read Alma 19:16-36.
    • Verses 25-27: If you had been there and saw this scene, what would you think that it means?
    • Verse 29: This is one of only a few times that the name Jesus is used in the Book of Mormon.
    • Verse 33: What does this verse say as evidence that Lamoni's servants were truly converted?
    • Tell someone the story of how Ammon converted King Lamoni.


  7. Recite 2 Nephi 32:8-9.
    Read Alma 20.
    • Verse 13: Isn't it amazing how the truth has been twisted? Lamoni's father is the king over all the land of Lehi-Nephi. The Nephites left this land to get away from the Lamanites, who were being mean to them. Now Lamoni's father says that the Nephites stole property from the Lamanites? Who is the real liar here?
    • Verse 27: Ammon was such a good missionary. He turned an enemy into someone who is ready to hear the gospel.
    • Put Middoni on the map.
