Jacob 1-4: “Be Reconciled unto God through the Atonement of Christ” (March 9-15)


Jacob understood the importance of gospel teaching and took his responsibilities seriously. His brother Nephi, who had consecrated him as “a priest and a teacher” over their people (2 Nephi 5:26, Jacob 1:18), had commanded him to write sermons, revelations, and prophecies on the plates “for Christ’s sake, and for the sake of our people” (Jacob 1:4). After Nephi’s death, Jacob recognized that his people were drifting from the commandments of God. He delivered a stern sermon, calling them to repentance, in order to fulfill his responsibilities in his calling.

Here is an outline of that sermon:  Jacob’s Second Sermon – Jacob 2-3
