Were Lahonti’s men so fixed and determined not to fight the Nephites because they were a part of Zarahemnah’s army that promised not to fight the Nephites again?
You can’t imagine how uplifting this class has been for me. I have ended with tears of joy and great inspiration in my heart to continue fighting. God bless you in your ministry as teachers of the gospel.
As always, Thank you so much…I learned a lot from this presentation.
The Nephite War ethic is interesting because it is everything against the War ethic of Joseph Smith’s time. Joseph Smith was part of the post Napoleonic period which glorified attack attack attack. All influences at the time would have promoted that war ethic. The Nephite War ethic is unlike any I’ve ever encountered beint as defensive centric. Marvelous example they were a “peculiar” people. The Nephite nation crumbled when they violated that war ethic. Truly a unique civilization. Your instruction was very insightful into the more symbolic portion of this Book which was very well done.
Wonderful lesson about the past war that gives us guide in our daily endeavour what we are facing today yeah there is no one else we can trust only our God the living that we always put Him in the midst of everything. Thank you for this great lesson .God bless .
Google dan Vogel… how Joseph Smith invented reformed Egyption… it will blow u away… don’t be afraid… remember what the lord told Joseph Smith “ye must study it out in your mind “
Thank you for such a great explanation of the Book of Mormon and the stories, their purpose in our lives, why the plan of salvation.and why we are here!!!!
The story of Lehonti went down with his guards to Amalickiah is found in Alma 47 not 46. Great lesson!
I look forward to watching these videos and learning more each week. Thanks for your efforts. These lessons are enlightening my life. Thank to both of you. May the Lord keep blessing you!.
Thank you for another wonderful lesson. I truly appreciate your insights and knowledge.
The title of Liberty flag, explanation has helped me understand some situations in my family. Thank you for your wonderful lesson.
Loved your line GI loin cloth. Lol!
Thank you for another wonderful lesson. Yes God must be first in our lives, always.
Where did the Amalekites come from? I see them in chapter 21 then again in 43, but don’t know how they got started.
Another wonderful lesson! Thank you so much!
Taylor, I have been reading your book The Covenant Path and I have a question I really need answered. Is there a way I could contact you?
Awesome lesson! Thank you! 🙂
what a great lesson! I got so much out of it. so many take aways that we can apply to our modern day lives
Never looked at the wars in Alma as a continuation of the war in heaven. What a great perspective ?. Gives me more incentive to keep fighting the good fight ?
Great lesson on war. Remember always put God first and all good things will follow. Thank you??
The point is that the phrase “auld lang syne” is not recognizable to English speakers because it is not an English phrase. Translated literally it means “old long since,” but the meaning is more like “old times” or “the olden days.”Jan 3, 2019…LOLOLOL, I’ve always wondered that too!!!
Wow that was so powerfully done Thank you again. I love the book of Alma.
Another great lesson, thank you.
Thank you for the insights that you share! This particular lesson is very timely for me. The Book of Mormon really was written for our day. What we are reading are the very things that are happening right now. I have been feeling very frustrated and even angry sometimes about so many things that are going on, so I have been praying to Heavenly Father to help me to see things as He would have me see them . This video has been part of the answer to my prayers. I know that all things are in His hands, and that every promise He has made to us, He will keep. We need to keep our promises and covenants to Him so that we are worthy of the blessings that He wants to give us, and that we so desperately need at this time. I have been giving some thought about the war in Heaven and all of what is happening right now here on Earth. I recently shared with a friend that I think some of what we are feeling right now might be reminiscent of how we must have felt in premortal life when Lucifer wanted to take away our agency, and we needed to stand for agency, the Plan of Salvation; our liberty to choose. That is happening right now. There are people who are hungry for power and are stirring up many people to anger and make war so that they might strategically take away our God-given rights to liberty. In contrast, there are those of us who see what is going on and desire to defend our freedom to worship God as we desire, to enjoy the blessings of freedom, and defend the sanctity of home and family. The Book of Mormon truly has been written for our day, and testifies of Jesus Christ who is our Savior and Redeemer. May He give us the strength, courage, and resolve to stay true to Him and His Gospel, no matter the cost.

LOLOLOL…But the screen showed Ch 46 & we were on Ch 47…am I confusing YOU!! sorry…I’m old…Thanks for the wonderful lessons…AGAIN…how do you know sooooo much??

You two Brothers….you know so very much & have made the BOM come alive for me…thanks for all you do….Uplifting & reminds me to FOCUS…to remember…God bless….
Sorry but your “picture” shows Ch 46 instead of 47!!!
Thank you for the very inspiring message. It’s so much easier to apply the scriptures to my life when I get to know your thought process on the Word of God. Looking forward to the future lessons.
Great discussions and insights. I get a bit distracted by the maps because I tend to be more of a North American theorist, but very good stuff presented here. Thank you.
An interesting thing in this section is that Moroni is apologetic for using strategems to defeat the Lamanites. One would think that in a fight for national survival, any strategy outside cold-blooded murder is fair game. For example, in World War II, we used double-agents and other means to convince the Germans that the invasion of Europe would take place in Calais rather than Normandy. Or when the British used a corpse with fake papers to make the Germans believe that the Allies were going to invade Sardinia instead of Sicily.
Thank you for your videos. I love these insights. I love how this helps me put on the armor of God and equips me with powerful godly weapons.
Life (happiness) is not about waiting for the storm to pass; it is learning to dance in the rain. I am so grateful for the map you are using (I lovei t). It has helped me focus on what is happening and not on where it is taking place. Thank you Sometime,when you might be looking for something to do, would you (I don’t know the right word) define, disect the word COMMAND. It is used so much in the BoM.
Beautiful stuff. Thanks ?
YAY!! I look forward to your lessons every week. I don’t think I have ever learned so much and had such enthusiasm learning about the Book of Mormon (and I have read it in its entirety so many times). It’s as though I have never read it before. You both make it a JOY to learn! THANK YOU.
You guys are doing a great work, I very much appreciate your efforts and dedication to understanding these things and teaching them so well with great visuals
