    This semester I have enjoyed studying the Book of Mormon in the manner we did. In the first lesson or week we learned about the Tree of Life and I came to understand some things differently than I had understood them in the past.

    The scripture block that I chose is found in Alma 46:1-21. After reading this scripture, I decided to further my understanding of the principles taught in these verses so that I could learn how to become more like Moroni in being bold and raising my own Title of Liberty. In the previous chapters, at around 74 B.C., Moroni was made captain of the Nephites at age twenty-five and led the Nephite armies to victory over the Lamanites. At the beginning of chapter 46, Amalikiah, "a man of cunning device

    During my high school years, each day, after early the dreaded morning seminary, our dear Sister Gestcher would leave us with this last piece of advice: “be good.” Well what does she even mean by that? I later learned that Sister Gestcher was reminding us to be obedient and live in harmony with the teachings of Jesus Christ. As I’ve studied the scriptures and various conference talks about obedience, I have learned that obedience can lead a person to so many other gospel principles and blessings

    Alma 36 is one of my favorite chapters in the Book of Mormon because of the personal meaning it has in my life. It is a great story filled with lessons, and if you look you can even find a chiasmus. After returning from his mission to the Zoramites Alma calls all of his sons together and spoke with them one by one giving them council and commandments in what could be looked at as a missionary exit interview. Chapter 36 is part of that “Missionary exit interview” with his oldest son, Heleman.

    The purest, simplest description of the Book of Mormon is that it is literally, “another testament of Jesus Christ,” given to mankind so that they may know how to become like Him. Yet sometimes, if only the surface of the Book of Mormon is studied, it is easy to loose sight of Christ in between pages after page of wars and contentions, kings and judges, journeys and trials and prophecies. If we diligently study the Book of Mormon, we will find that Christ is on every page, and we will come to a

    He hath filled me with his love, even unto the consuming of my flesh”. “Awake my soul! No longer droop in sin. Rejoice, O my heart, and give place no more for the enemy of my soul” (Book of Mormon). All of these sentiments were expressed by the great prophet Nephi in what is arguably the only psalm of the Book of Mormon, 2 Nephi 4:16-35--more commonly referred to as the “Psalm of Nephi”. I argue that 2 Nephi 4 is, in fact, a literary psalm, much like those of the Old Testament- for three reasons.
