Class 4 – 1 Nephi 6-10: Falling at The Savior’s Feet

Suggested Pre-Class Readings

Before watching the video for this class, please read 1 Nephi 6-10. As you’re reading, choose one of the course “Scripture Study Skills” to practice on these chapters.

Digging Deeper

Watch the Church’s Book of Mormon video for 1 Nephi 7 and 1 Nephi 8.

Did you know there is more artwork based on the tree of life than any other Book of Mormon scene? Note that this link only takes you to the first of 20+ pages. Scroll through and see some amazing artwork! The Book of Mormon Art Catalog is a great resource!

For a deeper dive into the difference between personal salvation and the salvation of nations, read Heather Hardy, “The Double Nature of God’s Saving Work: The Plan of Salvation and Salvation History.” 

The Heather Hardy article I just cited comes from a book dedicated to 1 Nephi 8, 11-14. I recommend reading the whole thing! It’s The Things Which My Father Saw: Approaches to Lehi’s Dream and Nephi’s Vision.
