Studying the Scriptures
Do activity A as you study Mormon 3.
A Voice from the Dust
As you read the last pages of the Book of Mormon, there are places where it will seem that Mormon and Moroni knew our day as well as they knew their own. Speaking directly to us in Mormon 3:17, Mormon said, “Therefore …” or in other words, “Because of the things you now know, I will tell you this …”
List the truths Mormon testified of in Mormon 3:17–22.
Write how understanding these truths will help you prevent repeating the tragic mistakes of the Nephites.
