Lesson 11: Press Forward with a Steadfastness in Christ

Book of Mormon Class Member Study Guide, (1999), 8


  • Nephi began his final writings by saying that he would “speak concerning the doctrine of Christ” (2 Nephi 31:2). Based on Nephi’s teachings in 2 Nephi 31, how would you define “the doctrine of Christ”?

Suggestion for Family Discussion

Prepare the dinner table for a meal together, and tell family members that you will bring them their food. When family members sit at the table, give them portions of food that are much smaller than the portions they usually eat. Then conduct the following discussion:

  • How might our scripture study sometimes be compared to eating a very small amount of food?

  • As a family, read 2 Nephi 32:3. What do you think it means to “feast upon the words of Christ”? (2 Nephi 32:3) What can we do to make our personal and family scripture study a feast?
