“Lesson 18: ‘God Himself … Shall Redeem His People’” Book of Mormon: Gospel Doctrine Teacher’s Manual (1999), 79–83
To help class members appreciate the importance of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and stay true to their testimonies of the Atonement.
Read, ponder, and pray about the following scriptures:
Mosiah 12–13. Abinadi calls King Noah and his priests to repentance. He exhorts them to keep the commandments. He teaches them that the performances and ordinances of the law of Moses are types, or symbols, of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
Mosiah 14–16. Abinadi quotes Isaiah. He testifies of the Atonement and exhorts Noah’s priests to teach the people that redemption comes through Christ.
Mosiah 17. Alma, one of Noah’s priests, repents and records the words of Abinadi. Abinadi seals his testimony of the Savior with his life.
If the picture Abinadi before King Noah is available, prepare to use it during the lesson (62042; Gospel Art Picture Kit 308).
If you use the attention activity, bring to class some or all of the pictures listed in the activity.
