Welcome to the first day. It’s really simple. There’s something to read, something to watch and something to think about. Please do them in order, somewhere quiet and without distractions. It’ll only take 10 minutes. Start and finish with a prayer.


“The central purpose of the Book of Mormon is its testament of Jesus Christ,” President Boyd K. Packer of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles says. “Of more than 6,000 verses in the Book of Mormon, far more than half refer directly to Him.” Describing his first time reading the entire Book of Mormon, he says, “That was a life-changing event. After that, I never set the book aside.”

Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles teaches. “Study of the Book of Mormon is most rewarding when one focuses on its primary purpose—to testify of Jesus Christ.” He reminds us that the Book of Mormon is the “only book that the Lord Himself has testified to be true,” and that we can receive our own testimonies of its divinity when we prayerfully study it. “It will bring you closer to the Lord and His loving power,” he says. “[The Lord] has promised that those who live by the precepts of this book ‘shall receive a crown of eternal life.’”

2 Nephi 25:26 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.

29 And now behold, I say unto you that the right way is to believe in Christ, and deny him not; and Christ is the Holy One of Israel; wherefore ye must bow down before him, and worship him with all your might, mind, and strength, and your whole soul; and if ye do this ye shall in nowise be cast out.

Mosiah 3: 17 And moreover, I say unto you, that there shall be no other name given nor any other way nor means whereby salvation can come unto the children of men, only in and through the name of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent.

2 Nephi 2:8 Wherefore, how great the importance to make these things known unto the inhabitants of the earth, that they may know that there is no flesh that can dwell in the presence of God, save it be through the merits, and mercy, and grace of the Holy Messiah, who layeth down his life according to the flesh, and taketh it again by the power of the Spirit, that he may bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, being the first that should rise.

9 Wherefore, he is the firstfruits unto God, inasmuch as he shall make intercession for all the children of men; and they that believe in him shall be saved.

Why does Jesus Christ want us to learn more about him?

What impact could that have on our day to day lives?

    Thank you for this study. It is helping me make more specific prayers to help answer some questions. We need to know the right questions to get the right answers sometimes. And I feel I am asking the right ones now. 🙂
