3 Nephi 8-11: “Arise and Come Forth unto Me” (September 14-20)

Thunderings, lightnings, storms, tempests, and earthquakes, unlike anything they had ever seen before—that’s what the Nephites and the Lamanites experienced at the time of the Savior’s crucifixion. At least sixteen cities were destroyed by fire, or buried, or covered with water. Many other cities were partially destroyed, and many people died. All of this happened over a period of about three hours.

After the destruction, the survivors heard the voice of the Savior twice: once immediately, and again several hours later. Some time later, He appeared to a group of people who had gathered at the temple in the city of Bountiful. He invited them to feel the prints of the nails in his hands and feet, selected twelve disciples to represent Him, and taught the people how baptisms ought to be performed.

Here are some principles I’ve learned from these chapters:

1. The destruction (3 Nephi 8)

2. The Savior’s words immediately after the destruction (3 Nephi 9)

3. The Savior’s words several hours later (3 Nephi 10)

4. The Savior’s appearance at the temple in Bountiful (3 Nephi 11)
