Likening the Scriptures unto Ourselves



Liken All Scriptures – Elder Robert D. Hales (1:31)


Journal Prompt: 

Nephi cited the prophecies of Zenock, Neum, and Zenos (see 1 Nephi 19:10). These prophets lived in Old Testament times, but their prophecies are not found in the Bible. Using the scripture index or the Guide to the Scriptures as a resource, list several other prophecies that Zenock and Zenos made. What particular importance did their prophecies have to the Nephites? (see 3 Nephi 10:16). Why are they important to you?

Answer the first question from each paragraph in the commentary for 1 Nephi 19:21–24

In the meridian of time, Jesus “was judged to be a thing of naught” (1 Nephi 19:7, 9). Identify ways that the world today still judges Jesus “to be a thing of naught.” Write a paragraph outlining ways you can combat these worldly influences and develop your testimony of the Savior.
