2 Nephi 11-25: “We Rejoice in Christ” (February 17-23)

In Nephi’s first book, he quotes Isaiah 48 and 49 (1 Nephi 20-21).

In his second book, he quotes a sermon by his brother Jacob which includes Isaiah 50 and 51 (2 Nephi 7-8). Immediately after, he quotes another 13 chapters in a row: Isaiah 2-14 (2 Nephi 12-24), and then paraphrases Isaiah 29 (2 Nephi 27).

Why does Nephi quote from Isaiah so much? He gives us at least 3 reasons:

  1. To persuade us to believe in Christ (1 Nephi 19:23)
  2. To give us hope (1 Nephi 19:24)
  3. So that we can rejoice for all men (2 Nephi 11:8)
