3 Nephi 20-26: “Ye Are the Children of the Covenant” (October 12-18)

Temple at Dawn,” by Paul L. Anderson

On the second day of the Savior’s visit to the American continent, after praying for the people and administering the sacrament for a second time, He began again to teach them, beginning where He had left off the prior day. (See 3 Nephi 16:17-20, 3 Nephi 20:10-12.) Quoting the words of Isaiah, Micah, Moses, and Malachi, he explained to the people that the covenant God made with Israel was their covenant. He encouraged them to study the scriptures and to keep their own sacred records, in order to help them recognize and remember the blessings of the Lord.

Here is an outline of His sermon across the two days:

Last Sunday, President Russell M. Nelson encouraged us to make a list of God’s promises to covenant Israel (“Let God Prevail!” General Conference, October 2020). Here are some blog posts relating to covenant Israel:
