202.2: Experiment upon the Word (BoM Gospel Doctrine Lesson 28, Complete)

“The Word Is in Christ unto Salvation”


How many superstars of theology can we fit into a few chapters? Truth. Prayer. Atonement. These chapters contain some of the most memorable lessons and gems in the Book of Mormon. The “experiment upon the word” in Alma 32, Amulek’s powerful sermon on the Atonement and role of this life, as well as some overlooked treasures about prayer and mercy.

Highlights of the lesson will include:

  • Detailed exploration of the idea of Alma’s “experiment upon the word”. What are reliable ways to know a principle is true? What does “true” mean in this instance?
  • Discussion of prayer, worship, and mercy
  • Engagement with Amulek’s sermon as we discuss human nature, the Atonement, and role of this life
