Class 7 – 2 Nephi 1-2: Encircled in the Arms of Jesus

Suggested Pre-Class Readings

Before watching the video for this class, please read  2 Nephi 1-2. 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 Videos for 2 Nephi 1-4.

I explore the idea of keeping our expectations focused on Jesus Christ and his eternal plan in my book The Founder of Our Peace.

In the video I quote from Elder David A. Bednar on the link between covenants and agency. This comes from his talk, “Gain Spiritual Intelligence.” I recommend the whole talk!

If you want a deep dive into 2 Nephi, I recommend, Brant A. Gardner’s book, Second Witness: Analytical and Contextual Commentary on the Book of Mormon: Second Nephi Through Jacob.

For something lighter, but still awesome, watch one of the greatest seminary videos of all times: “Act For Themselves”. It features a young man, his alter ego and a Ferrari!
