Alma 23–27 discusses the Anti-Nephi-Lehies, a group of people who became so deeply converted that they “never did fall away” (Alma 23:6). As you study this account, look for evidences of the truth and sincerity of the Anti-Nephi-Lehies’ conversion.
The Anti-Nephi-Lehies “took their swords … and they did bury them up deep in the earth” (Alma 24:15–17). Why was it significant that they buried their weapons rather than simply promising not to use them? What can we do to bury our “weapons of rebellion”?
