3 Nephi 12-16: “I Am the Law, and the Light” (September 21-27)

“Hear ye him.” That is what our Heavenly Father said to a group of people just before Jesus Christ descended from heaven. They were therefore highly motivated to listen and receptive to His message.

What was that message? After calling twelve disciples and teaching them how to baptize, He addressed the multitude. Here are the first topics He discussed with them:

  1. The Sermon on the Mount (3 Nephi 12-14)
    1. Becoming perfect (3 Nephi 12)
    2. Avoiding hypocrisy (3 Nephi 13)
    3. Judging righteously (3 Nephi 14)
  2. What it means for the law to be fulfilled in Christ (3 Nephi 15:1-10)
  3. The importance of the gathering of Israel (3 Nephi 15:11-24, 16)

Here is a summary of the entire sermon, which He delivered over two days:
