Studying the Scriptures
Do activities A and B as you study Alma 19.
The Process of Conversion
Alma 19 teaches much about the process of conversion. Answer the following questions to help you discover this process:
From Alma 19:6, 33, what do you think are the most important words and phrases that describe the conversion of King Lamoni and his servants? Why do you think each word or phrase you chose is important?
According to Alma 19:16–17, how was Abish converted?
According to Alma 19:29–35, how did other Lamanites become converted?
Why do you think some were not converted?
Think about which words, phrases, or experience in Alma 19 are most like your own process of conversion.
What Is the Moral of the Story?
In Alma 19:36, the prophet-historian Mormon explained what he wanted us to learn from Ammon’s experiences.
In your own words, explain what Mormon said the lesson is and list at least two events from Alma 17–19 that illustrate that principle.
What difference does that principle make in your life?
