Lesson 17: A Seer…Becometh a Great Benefit to His Fellow Brings

Reading Preperation:
  • Mosiah 7-11
Lesson Summary:
We learned of what became of a group of people who ignored counsel and departed from Zarahemla during the rule of King Mosiah. (see Omni 1:27-29.) As a result of their circumstances, a rescue party sent to obtain assistance from their brethren in Zarahemla. They did not find the land of Zarahemla, but did discover the remains of the Jaredite nation. They returned with 24 plates that could only be translated by one who is a Seer. We also learned the effect a wicked king can have upon his subjects. As a result of the wickedness of the people, the Lord sent a prophet to call them to repentance.
