The Books in the Book of Mormon (Children’s #119)
- We are now finishing the book of Ether. Ether was the last prophet of the Jaredites.
- He had many prophecies, and he saw the destruction of the entire civilization because of their wickedness.
- He saw Christ’s time, and he also saw our day, in addition to telling the Jaredite kings what would happen if they didn’t repent.
- The Jaredites were split into two countries, who often went to war with each other. When the kings were righteous, the people prospered, but over time they kept getting more and more wicked.
- This week we will study a lot about Ether’s words because they apply to us.
Take turns pretending to be Ether telling the kings and the people that they need to choose the right.
Who can you share the gospel with this week? How?
- Moroni interrupts here and talks to us a little bit, too, about the importance of Ether’s writings.
- What does Moroni say about faith in these verses?
How can I increase my faith?
Hope of Israel (Hymns #259)
- There are some wonderful promises in these verses. What do they teach about hope?
- What do we need to do to have this hope?
What can I do so I can have hope for a better world?
When Faith Endures (Hymns #128)
- What was Moroni worried about? What did the Lord tell Moroni?
- Do we worry about things that we aren’t good at? What should we do?
What weakness do I have that I can work on making a strength?
Follow the Prophet (Children’s #110)
- The last two kings in Ether’s time were Shiz and Coriantumr.
- Ether told Coriantumr that if he would repent, they would be spared. But Coriantumr had too much pride and anger. Thousands and thousands of people died in the war between the two.
- Coriantumr killed Shiz, and he was the only person left alive of the Jaredites. He is the same one we read about King Benjamin’s people meeting. That’s how we got the writings of the Jaredites.
