Easter: “He Shall Rise…with Healing in His Wings” (March 30-April 12)


For the next two weeks, instead of having a specific reading assignment, we will prepare for Easter Sunday by studying the life, death, resurrection, and atoning power of Jesus Christ. Here are some passages from the Book of Mormon which teach about these topics:

  • 1 Nephi 10:4-11 – Lehi prophesies about the Savior’s life
  • 1 Nephi 11:13-34 – Nephi sees the Savior’s life in a vision
  • 2 Nephi 2 – Lehi teaches how the Messiah overcomes the effects of the Fall of Adam and Eve
  • 2 Nephi 9:4-27 – Jacob teaches how the atonement overcomes death and hell
  • Mosiah 3 – King Benjamin discusses the life of the Savior and the power of His atonement
  • Mosiah 14 – Isaiah prophesies that the Savior would be “despised and rejected of men” but that He would be “wounded for our transgressions” and “bruised for our iniquities.”
  • Mosiah 15 – Abinadi teaches that the Savior would make intercession for our sins and would bring about the resurrection
  • Alma 7:9-15 – Alma clarifies that the Savior would not only take upon Himself our sins but also all of our pains, sicknesses, and infirmities.
  • Alma 11:39-45 – Amulek testifies of the resurrection: “The spirit and the body shall be reunited again in its perfect form.”
  • Alma 34:2-16 – Amulek explains why only an infinite Being could carry out the atonement.
  • Alma 42 – Alma explains to his son Corianton that the atonement of Jesus Christ enables God to be “a perfect, just God, and a merciful God also.”
  • Helaman 14 – Samuel the Lamanite prophesies of the Savior and gives the signs of His birth and death.
  • 3 Nephi 11:1-17 – Jesus Christ appears to the people at the temple in Bountiful. They feel the wounds in His hands and in His feet.
  • 3 Nephi 27:13-19 – Jesus teaches the people how His crucifixion can lift us up to the Father.
  • Moroni 10:32-33 – Moroni teaches that we can be sanctified—made perfect in Christ by the grace of God.
