“Enjoy an inspiring pump-up as prophets and apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recite Doctrine and Covenants section 4. This beloved revelation reminds us that “a marvelous work is about to come forth among the children of men” and that “if ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work.” Leaders like Jeffrey R. Holland, Russell M. Nelson, and David A. Bednar have already thrust in their sickles. What are you waiting for?”
Dive into the history of the first vision and how it went from being barely shared to becoming a do or die battleground from members of the church.
In an address given at Brigham Young University, Elder Bruce R.

Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has taught that one of the most fruitful scripture study skills is learning to identify connections, patterns, and themes.

Jesus Christ’s ministry among the Nephites recorded in the Book of Mormon contains extremely instructive sequence! Take this dive to benefit from this Elder Bednar’s insight and a sequence breakdown for the Savior’s personal visit to the Americas recorded in 3 Nephi 11-26. What stands out to you from the 3 Nephi sequence and why is it instructive?
