-XLII-
He Lives!
Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World Comes to America!

One Week of Studies
  1. Recite Ether 12:6.
    Read 3 Nephi 8.
    • You are now at the most sacred part of the Book of Mormon. Chapters 8-28 tell of Jesus' visit to the American continent following his death and resurrection.
    • Verses 5-19: The Storms, fires, and earthquakes are because Jesus dies. We also expect these things to happen prior to Jesus' Second Coming.
    • Verses 20-23: The darkness was for the three days after Jesus had died, before he resurrected.


  2. Recite Alma 32:21.
    Read 3 Nephi 9.
    • Verses 3-10: Here a voice lists all the cities that were destroyed, many which we hadn't heard of before. Add these to the map. Where do you think they might go? Put a line through all the cities that were destroyed.
    • Verse 19: This is talking about animal sacrifice.
    • Verse 20: What is a broken heart and a contrite spirit?


  3. Recite Alma 34:32-34.
    Read 3 Nephi 10.
    • Verses 4-7: These are words of Christ to the people who survived the destruction. It is said that they survived because they were more righteous, so why does Jesus call them to repentance? You're a good person, but perhaps you could also find reasons to repent?
    • Verses 9-19: These verses seem to be Moroni summarizing the past three days and telling us a little about what is coming up in the next few chapters.


  4. Recite Alma 37:6-7.
    Read 3 Nephi 11:1-17.
    • Verse 3: This is a still, small voice, but it is not the Holy Ghost. You will know who it is when you read verse seven.
    • Verses 9-11: Imagine you were there when Jesus came down and introduced himself. How would you feel? What would you do?


  5. Recite Alma 37:35.
    Read 3 Nephi 11:18-41.
    • Verses 21 & 22: Jesus had a lot to do with the people on this continent, but first he organized the church. It is important that the church is well organized. What is the name of the power that Nephi and others received?
    • Verse 29: Jesus was very clear that he does not want arguments (see also verses 22 & 28). What can you do to be angry less often and argue less? Read this verse several times. Mark this scripture, write it down and memorize it. Write what this verse means to you.
