Introduction to Lesson 26

Follow-up notes from Lesson 25.

Alma 20.

Lamoni wished for Ammon to go with him to the land of Nephi, that he might present Ammon to his father.

Alma 21.


Alma 22 & 23

Aaron was led by the Spirit to the land of Nephi, to the house of the king.

As Ammon did with Lamoni, Aaron and his brethren offered to become the servants of the king.

Aaron taught about the existence of God.

The king said that he believed the words of Aaron and desired to know more.

READ ALMA 22:15.

After the Lamanite king had spoken these words (22:16-18), like his son, he collapsed as if he were dead.

Aaron and his brethren went from city to city preaching the word of God.


Alma 24

Those who were not converted were stirred up by the Amalekites and the Amulonites to go to war against the Anti-Nephi-Lehis.

The Lamanites came up against the people of Anti-Nephi-Lehi.


Alma 26

Ammon speaks of great success in the missionary work among the Lamanites.

READ ALMA 26:23-24.


Alma 27-29

Ammon made an inquiry of the Lord and was instructed to lead the Anti-Nephi-Lehis to the land of Zarahemla.

Ammon and his brethren returned to the land of Zarahemla to ask the Nephites if they would accept the immigration of these Lamanites.

The Nephites offered to give up the land of Jershon to the Anti-Nephi-Lehis and defend it for them.

They came down and took possession of the land and became known among the Nephites as the people of Ammon.

Alma 28 tells of a great battle between the Lamanites and Nephites.

Alma 29.
