Questions to focus on during the video

What does Exodus 15 teach about Jesus Christ as a divine warrior?

What is the meaning of “hosts” in the phrase, “The Lord of hosts”?

How might the idea of Jesus as a divine warrior / Lord of hosts be relevant to us today?

Be able to explain the meaning of Philippians 2:6-11. How does understanding the Savior’s power make his willingness to lower himself all the more impressive?

In addition to Christ as a divine warrior we looked at two additional clusters of scripture. What does each cluster of scripture tell us about Jesus Christ, and what might these teachings mean for us today?

One challenge Christians have faced for centuries is answering the question of why the Lord would tell the Israelites to destroy the Canaanites. How does Nephi respond to this question?
