Studying the Scriptures
Do two of the following activities (A–D) as you study Alma 62.
Outline the Events
What Would You Say?
Review Alma 62:12–17. Imagine being the leader of the people of Ammon. Write what you might say to the Lamanite prisoners of war.
Write an Obituary
Read Alma 62:35–38 and write an obituary about Teancum. (An obituary is a notice of a person’s death that includes brief information about the deceased.) Include information such as who he was, what he accomplished, and why he did what he did.
Summarize a Passage
Review Alma 62:39–51.
List some reasons you think some of the Nephites were “hardened” by the war while others were “softened.”
Explain how Helaman and his brethren helped the people overcome the effects of the war.
What can you do now to prepare for the difficult times that will come in your life so that your heart will not become hardened?
