Class 9 – 2 Nephi 6-10: The Lord Shall Comfort Zion

Suggested Pre-Class Readings

Before watching the video for this class, please read 2 Nephi 6-10. As you’re reading, choose one of the course “Scripture Study Skills” to practice on these chapters.

These chapters contain writings of Isaiah…because they can be difficult, I suggest you read my article, “The Isaiah Map: An Approach to Teaching Isaiah.”

Digging Deeper

My book, Voices in the Book of Mormon goes into depth on the unique voice of Jacob, and other distinctive testimonies of Jesus Christ.

If you’re interested in learning more about why “The Lord” and “Jesus Christ” were separated in the Book of Mormon Database, you can learn more in this article.

In the video, I reference Joseph Spencer’s book, An Other Testament: On Typology. It’s available for free here. You might also be interested in his 2023 book of Isaiah, A Word in Season.

Here’s a great video clip of the Asch Experiment you can either watch for personal enjoyment or use when teaching others.

You can learn more about Jacob’s unique writing style in the article, “Literary Reflections on Jacob and His Descendants,” by John S. Tanner or my article, “Even prophets feel anxiety—how Jacob’s unique sermons can help us find hope in Christ.
