In 2 Nephi 26-30, Nephi elaborates on the words of Isaiah which he has quoted in the previous chapters. The first and the last chapters (26 and 30) emphasize God’s desire to reveal all things. The second and fourth (27 and 29) are prophecies of the role of the Book of Mormon in the restoration. And chapter 28 warns us specific tactics which Satan will use against us in the last days.

Here is a summary of the topics in these chapters:

  1. God doesn’t work in darkness, and He invites all to come unto Him (2 Nephi 26).
  2. A book will help the world understand spiritual things in the last days (2 Nephi 27, paraphrasing Isaiah 29).
  3. In the last days, Satan will teach false doctrines (2 Nephi 28)
    1. Disbelief: There are no more miracles; God has done His work (2 Nephi 28:5-6).
    2. Fatalism: “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die” (2 Nephi 28:7-10).
    3. Prideful persecution of the poor: “stiff necks and high heads” (2 Nephi 28:12-15)
    4. Misguided priorities: turning aside the just for a thing of naught (2 Nephi 28:16-20)
    5. Complacency: “All is well in Zion” (2 Nephi 28:21-25).
    6. Willful ignorance : “We need no more of the word of God, for we have enough” (2 Nephi 28:26-30).
  4. The testimony of two nations is a witness…that I am God” (2 Nephi 29).
  5. The words of the book will bring knowledge and peace to the world. All things will be revealed (2 Nephi 30).
