“Lesson 11: Abinadi and King Noah,” Primary 4: Book of Mormon, (1997),35

“Abinadi and King Noah,” Book of Mormon Stories, Ch 14, p38-42

Zeniff was a righteous king of a group of Nephites.

• When he grew old, his son Noah became king.
• Noah was not a good king like his father.

He was wicked and would not obey God’s commandments.

• He forced his people to give him part of their grain, animals, gold, and silver.

King Noah did this because he was lazy.

• He made the Nephites give him everything he needed to live.
• He replaced the good priests his father had called with wicked priests who taught the people to sin.

King Noah had many beautiful buildings made, including a large palace with a throne.

• The buildings were decorated with gold, silver, and expensive wood.

King Noah loved the riches he took from his people.

• He and his priests spent their time drinking wine and being wicked.
• God sent a prophet named Abinadi to Noah’s people.

Abinadi warned them that if they did not repent, they would become the Lamanites’ slaves.

• When King Noah heard what Abinadi had said, he was angry.

Abinadi was taken to the king.

• King Noah and his priests asked him many questions.
• They tried to trick him into saying something wrong.

He knew that God would help him.

• King Noah was angry and ordered his priests to kill Abinadi.

Abinadisaid if they touched him, God would kill them.

• The Holy Ghost protected Abinadi so he could finish saying what the Lord wanted him to.
• Abinadi’s face was shining. The priests were afraid to touch him.

Speaking with power from God, Abinadi told the people about their wickedness.

• He read God’s commandments to them.
• He told them Jesus Christ would be born on the earth.

Jesus would make it possible for people to repent, be resurrected, and live with God.

• Abinadi told the people to repent and believe in Jesus Christ or they would not be saved.
• Noah told the priests to kill Abinadi.
• They tied him up and threw him in prison.

The one priest who believed Abinadi was named Alma.

• The king was angry with Alma and had him thrown out.
• Then he sent his servants to kill him.

Alma ran and hid, and the servants never found him.

• After spending three days in prison, Abinadi was again brought before King Noah.

The king told Abinadi to take back what he had said against him and his people.

• King Noah told Abinadi that if he did not deny all he had said, he would be killed.

• He was willing to die rather than take back what God had sent him to say.

King Noah ordered his priests to kill Abinadi.

• They tied him up, whipped him, and burned him to death.
• Before he died, Abinadi said King Noah would also die by fire.
• The Lamanite army also came to fight the king and his followers.

The king and his followers ran from the Lamanites, but the Lamanites caught up and began killing them.

• The king told his men to leave their families and keep running.

Many of the men would not leave their families and were captured by the Lamanites.

• King Noah did not want the men to return to their families.
• He ordered them to stay with him.

The men were angry with King Noah.

• Then they went back to their families.

What did the Lord first command Abinadi to say to King Noah and his people?

• What kind of lives were King Noah and his people living?
• Let’s read Mosiah 11:1–7, 14–15, 19
• Why do you think people get angry with those who call them to repentance?

What did Abinadi boldly testify to the wicked King Noah and his priests about the commandments?

• Let’s read Mosiah 12:33–36; 13:11–24

Enr. Act. 3

• Let’s read Mosiah 15:1, 6–8; 16:14–15

How did Abinadi show his courage?

• Why is it sometimes difficult to stand for what is right?
• How can we stand for the right?

Watch what happens…

• I have a bowl of water and some pepper.
• I’m going to sprinkle pepper over the water.
• The pepper represents those who choose to be valiant.
• This dishwashing liquid represents wickedness.

Enr. Act. 2

Watch what happens…

…When wickedness is put next to those who are valiant.

• Did you see what happened?

Enr. Act. 2

When Alma believed Abinadi’s testimony, he chose to be valiant in obeying the prophet and turned away from the wicked ways of King Noah.

• What things should we turn away from so we can be valiant?

Enr. Act. 2

Why was Abinadi burned to death?

• Why do you think the Lord let this happen?

What was important to King Noah?

• What was important to Abinadi?
• Let’s read Mosiah 13:4; 17:7–10
• What should be important to us?

Let’s compare!

Role Play!

Enr. Act. 1

Let’s discuss…

• …The similarities between how Abinadi was treated by the wicked King Noah and his people and how Christ was treated.
• Christ: Mosiah 15:5, Matthew 26:66, Luke 24:20.
• Abinadi: Mosiah 13:1; 17:7, 10, 13.

Enr. Act. 5

I testify that even though being righteous does not free us from pain and trials, if we are valiant in our testimonies of Jesus Christ, Heavenly Father will bless us with peace in this life and all that he has in the life to come.
