  8. Introduction Mosiah 12:18–13:26 When King Noah and his priests questioned Abinadi, the prophet rebuked them for not teaching or keeping the commandments. King Noah ordered his priests to kill Abinadi, but God protected Abinadi and gave him power to continue his message. Quoting Isaiah, Abinadi testified of Jesus Christ and His Atonement.

  9. I KNOW what it means to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. I LIVE the gospel of Jesus Christ. Consider how well the statements describe yourself, using a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 representing that the statement describes yourselfvery well. • Why do you think it is important to be able to sincerely make both of these statements?

  10. As we discuss the words of Abinadi, we will learn more about the importance of knowing and living the gospel. In the previous lesson, we discussed the account of King Noah and his priests casting Abinadi into prison because of his prophecies against them (see Mosiah 12:1–17). ReadMosiah 12:18–24 Abinadi was brought before King Noah and his priests. The priests questioned him, trying to confuse him into saying something they could use against him. Then one of them asked him to explain a scripture passage. ReadMosiah 12:25–30, looking for Abinadi’s reasons for rebuking Noah and his priests.?

  11. • What were Abinadi’s reasons for rebuking Noah and his priests.? • Abinadi said that Noah and his priests had perverted the ways of the Lord (see Mosiah 12:26). In other words, they had corrupted sacred things and turned away from the right way to live. In what ways were Noah and the priests guilty of perverting the ways of the Lord? The priests claimed that salvation came by the law of Moses (see Mosiah 12:32). However, they did not keep theTen Commandments, which were part of that law, and they did not teach the people to keep the commandments (see Mosiah 11:1–15; 12:27–29, 37; 13:25–26).

  12. I KNOW what it means to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. I LIVE the gospel of Jesus Christ. • On a scale of 1 to 10, how well do you think each statement describes Noah and his priests? ReadMosiah 12:31–33. Please identify the principle Abinadi taught Noah and his priests. (He taught that if we keep the commandments of God, we will be saved.)

  13. Read these examples given by Elder F. Melvin Hammond of the Seventy. Listen for the importance of both knowing and keeping the commandments. “Many years ago a returned missionary stood boldly in a sacrament meeting and proclaimed aloud that he knew from his study of the scriptures that the gospel was true and that he would give his life for the Lord and His Church. Two weeks later he stood before the bishop of his student ward, humiliated and frightened, as he confessed that in a moment of weakness he had lost his virtue. Somehow his proclaimed devotion to the Savior had been forgotten in the whirl of his passion. Although a student of the word of God, he had not linked his study with the practical application of everyday, down-to-earth, Christlike living.

  14. “A beautiful girl worked her way through all the requirements to achieve the Young Womanhood Recognition. Her personal goals were thoughtfully written and carefully placed in her book of remembrance. Adamantly, she wrote that she would date only worthy young men and find that special one that would take her to the temple. When she was eighteen, her goals were forgotten; she eloped with a boy who was not a member of the Church. Many tears were shed by those who loved her most—her parents, teachers, and friends. She had fallen into the awful void between the requirements of the law and the reality of true discipleship” (“Eliminating the Void between Information and Application,” CES satellite training broadcast, Aug. 2003, 17, si.lds.org).

  15. • Why is knowing the commandments not enough to qualify us for salvation?

  16. • What is happening in the picture? (The king has ordered that Abinadi be killed. The Lord is protecting Abinadi.)

  17. To bring this picture to life, we need three people to read the parts the Narrator, King Noah, and Abinadi. First, the narrator and the student playing Noah read their parts in Mosiah 13:1–2. Then the student playing Abinadi will reply with Mosiah 13:3–4. The narrator will then read Mosiah 13:5–6. Then the student playing Abinadi will finish with Mosiah 13:7–11. (Print the script on the next slide.)

  18. Mosiah Chapter 13 Narrator: 1 And now when the king had heard these words, he said unto his priests: King Noah: Away with this fellow, and slay him; for what have we to do with him, for he is amad. Narrator: 2 And they stood forth and attempted to lay their hands on him; but he withstood them, and said unto them: Abinadi: 3 aTouch me not, for God shall smite you if ye lay your hands upon me, for I have not delivered the message which the Lord sent me to deliver; neither have I told you that which ye brequested that I should tell; therefore, God will not suffer that I shall be destroyed at this time.  4 But I must fulfil the commandments wherewith God has commanded me; and because I have told you the truth ye are angry with me. And again, because I have spoken the word of God ye have judged me that I am mad. Narrator: 5 Now it came to pass after Abinadi had spoken these words that the people of king Noah durst not lay their hands on him, for the Spirit of the Lord was upon him; and his face ashone with exceeding luster, even as Moses’ did while in the mount of Sinai, while speaking with the Lord.  6 And he spake with apower and authority from God; and he continued his words, saying: Abinadi:  7 Ye see that ye have not power to slay me, therefore I finish my amessage. Yea, and I perceive that it cuts you to your hearts because I tell you the truth concerning your iniquities.  8 Yea, and my words fill you with wonder and amazement, and with anger.  9 But I finish my message; and then it amatters not whither I go, if it so be that I am saved.  10 But this much I tell you, what you ado with me, after this, shall be as a btype and a shadow of things which are to come.  11 And now I read unto you the remainder of the acommandments of God, for I perceive that they are not written in your hearts; I perceive that ye have studied and taught biniquity the most part of your lives.

  19. Read the rest of Mosiah 13

  20. Read Mosiah 13:27–14:12 Abinadi teaches about salvation through the Atonement of Jesus Christ “After all our obedience and good works, we cannot be saved from death or the effects of our individual sins without …” … How would you finish this statement???

  21. “After all our obedience and good works, we cannot be saved from death or the effects of our individual sins without …” … How would you finish this statement??? Read the following statement by Elder Dallin H. Oaks: “After all our obedience and good works, we cannot be saved from death or the effects of our individual sins without the grace extended by the atonement of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon makes this clear. It teaches that ‘salvation doth not come by the law alone’ (Mosiah 13:28). In other words, salvation does not come simply by keeping the commandments. … Even those who try to obey and serve God with all their heart, might, mind, and strength are ‘unprofitable servants’ (Mosiah 2:21). Man cannot earn his own salvation” (“Another Testament of Jesus Christ,” Ensign, Mar. 1994, 67).

  22. Explain that as Abinadi spoke to Noah and the priests, he quoted some of Isaiah’s prophecies about Jesus Christ. ReadMosiah 14:3–12. Look for words or phrases that describe what the Savior has done to bring about our salvation. (List) Complete these statements in your minds: Jesus Christ has carried my sorrows, such as … Jesus Christ was wounded and bruised for my transgressions, such as …

  23. What does the following statement mean to you: “With his stripes we are healed” (Mosiah 14:5). The word stripes refers specifically to the wounds left on the Savior’s body when He was scourged, or whipped (see John 19:1). Generally, the word refers to all His suffering. Through the Savior’s suffering and our own efforts to keep the commandments, we can receive peace and forgiveness in this life and salvation in the life to come (see D&C 59:23; Articles of Faith 1:3). Perhaps we should show our love and appreciation for the Savior by keeping the commandments.
