013: Book of Mormon Lesson 36: 3 Nephi 1-7

The beginning of 3 Nephi overflows with intense extremes as it describes the decades leading up to the appearance of Jesus to the Lehites. The sign of Jesus’ birth is given; people believe then disbelieve. A protracted war with the Gadianton robbers forces the people to prepare and unite. Society is rebuilt and then collapses. Discussion points will include:

  • Signs of Jesus’ birth
  • Lessons from the Gadianton war
  • Insights from Mormon’s autobiographical aside
  • What led to the collapse of society?
  • More comments on the devil
  • Wickedness and Righteousness at extremes
  • 3 Nephi as a type of the Second Coming
