The Missions of the Sons of Mosiah

Historical context:

Missionary service.

Ammon & His Brethren as a Type of Christ

Ammon and his brothers gave up their right as heirs to the kingdom in order to teach the gospel to a hardened and idolatrous people.

Ammon, rather than marrying Lamoni's daughter and receiving the attendant privileges of royalty, choose to become the king's servant.

Ammon was willing to put his life on the line to bring the gospel to the Lamanites.
