Studying the Scriptures
Do one of the following activities (A–C) as you study Mosiah 19.
Draw a Scene from the Story
After you have read Mosiah 19, pick one scene from this story and sketch a simple drawing of it in your notebook. Include all of the important details for the part of the story you choose to draw. Next to your drawing explain what you drew and list the verses that you illustrated.
Match the Prophecy with Its Fulfillment
Review Abinadi’s prophecies about King Noah and his people in Mosiah 12:2–3. Then study Mosiah 19 and find and list verses that show that those two prophecies were fulfilled. You may want to write the reference for the prophecy in the margin of your scriptures next to the verses that show the fulfillment.
In your notebook, explain how each prophecy was fulfilled.
Interview a Character
The fate of King Noah is described in Mosiah 19:18–24. Suppose you were a news reporter traveling with Gideon’s men and interviewed one of the men who went with King Noah. Write how you think he might respond to the following questions:
Why did you go with the king instead of staying with your family?
Why isn’t the king with you now?
What happened to him?
What happened to the priests?
Why are you coming back?
If you had it to do over again, what would you do differently?
