Book of Mormon Primary Lessons

Lessons from the Book of Mormon as taught by S.J. Hollist, in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  

Lesson 1 - A Gift from a Loving Heavenly Father

“Lesson 1: The Book of Mormon, a Gift from a Loving Heavenly Father,” Primary 4: Book of Mormon, 1

"[Because of] Heavenly Father’s great love for us he has given us a gift to help us achieve eternal life. This gift has an important message for each of us. It teaches us about our Savior, Jesus Christ, and how to live so we can return to Heavenly Father. Ezra Taft Benson, the thirteenth President of the Church, said: “This is a gift of greater value to mankind than even the many wonderful advances we have seen in modern medicine. It is of greater worth to mankind than the development of flight or space travel” (in Conference Report, Oct. 1986, p. 3; or Ensign, Nov. 1986, p. 4)."

Read Joseph Smith—History 1:29–35, 42–54, 59–60 - the coming forth of the Book of Mormon from the Testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith.

Ancient prophets in America wrote it the Book of Mormon. It is a record of their people and prophesies. - Read paragraphs 1 and 2 in the Introduction.

The prophet Mormon abridged most of what was on the gold plates, quoting and summarizing what other prophets had written. That is why we call it the Book of Mormon.

The most important event in the Book of Mormon, as mentioned in the Introduction, paragraph 3, is the visit of Jesus Christ to the people in the Americas.

Many prophets (Nephi, Mormon, Moroni, Joseph Smith) have gone through great suffering and hardships so we can have the Book of Mormon.

Paragraph 6 & 8 - "Concerning this record the Prophet Joseph Smith said: “I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.” . . . We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true. Those who pursue this course and ask in faith will gain a testimony of its truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost (See Moroni 10: 3-5)."

How do you think reading and studying the Book of Mormon can help you?

The eighth article of faith - "We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God."

Heavenly Father wants you to continue to learn from the Book of Mormon every day. It’s Heavenly Father’s special gift to you. By following its teachings, you will learn to do the will of our Father in Heaven.” - Ezra Taft Benson
