Alma and Amulek*s Mission to Ammonihah

Report
Dare to do right! Dare to be true!
You have a work that no other can do;
Do it so bravely, so kindly, so well,
Angels will hasten the story to tell.
Dare, dare, dare to do right;
Dare, dare, dare to be true,
Dare to be true, dare to be true.
Dare to do right! Dare to be true!
Other men’s failures can never save you.
Stand by your conscience, your honor, your faith;
Stand like a hero and battle till death.
Words: George L. Taylor, b. 1835 Music: Arr. by A. C. Smyth, 1840–1909

Alma and Amulek’s
Mission to
Ammonihah
“Lesson 15: Alma and Amulek’s Mission to Ammonihah,” Primary 4: Book of Mormon, (1997),50
Scripture story adapted from Book of Mormon Stories
•God blessed Alma the
Younger and the sons of
Mosiah as they taught the
gospel.
•Many
people
listened to
them and
believed.
•Before King Mosiah died, the
Nephites chose judges to
lead them.
•Alma the Younger became
the first chief judge.
•He was
also the
leader of
the
Church.
•The Church
members
shared
everything
they had with
the poor, and
they cared
for the sick.
•They obeyed the
commandments, and God
blessed them.
•Not all of the Nephites were
righteous.
•These people loved riches
and would not obey God’s
commandments.
•They made fun
of the Church
members and
argued and
fought with
them.
•The wicked
Nephites
listened to
men who did
not believe
the gospel.
•Alma worried about the
Nephites’ wickedness, so he
decided to spend all of his
time preaching the gospel.
•He chose
Nephihah
to replace
him as
chief
judge.
•Alma
taught the
gospel
throughout
the land.
•When he tried to preach in
Ammonihah, the people
would not listen.
•They threw him out of the
city.
•Alma was sad that the
people of Ammonihah were
so wicked.
•He left to go
to another
city.
•An angel appeared
and comforted Alma.
•The angel told him to go
back to Ammonihah and
preach again.
•Alma
hurried
back.
•Alma was hungry.
•As he entered
the city, he
asked a man
for some food.
•An angel had told the man
that Alma would come and
that Alma was a prophet of
God.
•This man,
Amulek,
took Alma
to his
home and
fed him.
•Alma stayed with Amulek
and his family for many days.
He thanked God for Amulek’s
family and blessed them.
•Alma told Amulek about his
calling to teach the people
of Ammonihah.
•Amulek
went with
Alma to
teach the
people.
•The Holy Ghost helped them.
•Alma told
the people
to repent or
God would
destroy
them.
•He said Jesus Christ would
come and save those who
had faith in Him and
repented.
•The people of
Ammonihah
became
angry.
•They tried to throw Alma into
prison, but the Lord
protected him.
•Then Amulek began to
teach. Many of the people
knew Amulek; he was not a
stranger as Alma was.
•He told
them
about the
angel he
had
seen.
•Amulek said Alma was a
prophet of God and spoke
the truth.
•The people
were
surprised to
hear
Amulek’s
testimony.
•Some of the people became
angry, especially one wicked
man named Zeezrom.
•They tried to
trick Amulek
with
questions,
but he told
them he
knew about
their plan.
•Zeezrom wanted
to destroy
everything that
was good.
•He would cause problems,
and then people would pay
him money to solve the
problems he had created.
•Zeezrom
could not
trick Amulek,
so he offered
him money
to say there
is no God.
•Amulek knew God lives and
said Zeezrom knew it too but
loved money more than God.
•Then Amulek taught Zeezrom
about Jesus and about the
Resurrection and eternal life.
•The
people
were
amazed.
•Zeezrom began to shake
with fear.
•Zeezrom knew that Alma and
Amulek had the power of God
because they knew his
thoughts.
•Zeezrom
asked
questions
and listened
as Alma
taught him
the gospel.
•Some people believed Alma
and Amulek and began to
repent and study the
scriptures.
•Alma and
Amulek
continued
teaching
the
gospel.
