Come Follow Me (Insights into Alma Alma 53–63, August 10–16)

Why Did Alma Draw on the Teachings of Abinadi? #571

Astute readers of the Book of Mormon may have noticed that “Alma [the Younger] shows an affinity for the words of Abinadi.” Nowhere is this affinity more evident than in his counsel to his son Corianton, where research by John L. Hilton III indicates that Alma made at least thirteen allusions or direct quotations to Abinadi’s teachings (see table and appendix). Read more at bit.ly/knowhy571

Come Follow Me (Insights into Alma 39–42, July 27–August)

Why Did Alma See God Surrounded by Angels? #570

Alma 36 is a powerful story of repentance and redemption, but why did Alma tell it to Helaman instead of Corianton, his son in most need of repentance? Scholars have found that Alma is also relating a prophetic call narrative, which conforms to the expectations of ancient Israel and pre-Columbian America. Thus, Alma related his own prophetic commission to his eldest son and successor as he simultaneously commissioned Helaman to his own prophetic call. Read at bit.ly/knowhy570

Come Follow Me (Insights into Alma 36–38, July 20–26)

Why Did Alma Talk about Planting a Seed in the Heart? #569

This week for Come, Follow Me we read about Faith. Alma’s metaphor would have naturally resonated with peasant farmers of a predominately agricultural society, much like the Savior’s Parable of the Sower was relatable to his audience of laborers and agriculturalists in Palestine. Yet the imagery reviewed here suggests that there were additional factors that made this metaphor meaningful within the possible cultural backdrop of Book of Mormon peoples. Read at bit.ly/knowhy569

Why Did Alma Talk about Planting a Seed in the Heart? #569

Why Does the Book of Mormon Use So Many Different Terms for “Law”? #568

Throughout the Book of Mormon a set of synonymous (or near-synonymous) legal terms is often used to emphasize the righteousness or obedience of a group or an individual. Latter-day Saint legal scholar John W. Welch has explained that this seemingly redundant repetition is what’s called a “pleonastic list,” and is similar to the list of near-synonymous legal terms found in the Hebrew Bible.
