Book of Mormon FHE Lesson – The Joyful Prophecies of Isaiah

Nephi delighted in the words of Isaiah and took great care to record them for his people. This Book of Mormon FHE lesson teaches us how to rejoice in the scriptures and what we can do if we’re confused by what we read.

Hymn

Seek the Lord Early | Children’s Songbook, pg. 108

1. I’ll seek the Lord early while in my youth,
And he will help me to know the truth.
I’ll search the scriptures and find him there,
Then go to our Father in fervent prayer.
I’ll seek the Lord early, and I’ll obey
His living prophets in all they say.
I’ll keep his commandments; his love will abound.
I will seek the Lord early, and he will be found.

Lesson

FOR CHILDREN

Begin the lesson by asking children to name as many prophets as they can. Feel free to have them shout out the names and give them a little help if they need it. Once they’ve finished, ask them the following question: What do all of these prophets have in common?

Read aloud: Prophets testify of Jesus Christ. This is their main mission and calling. One of the prophets that is known for his beautiful and important teachings about Christ is Isaiah. Isaiah spoke about the future and when Jesus would come to the earth again. Nephi loved the words of Isaiah. Writing on metal plates was hard, but he took the time to write down some of his favorite scriptures from Isaiah so everyone he loved could study them.

Have someone read the following section from 2 Nephi 11:8:

I write some of the words of Isaiah, that whoso of my people shall see these words may lift up their hearts and rejoice for all men.

Ask: What happy words did we hear in this scripture?

Read aloud: The words of Isaiah, and all scriptures, help us rejoice. Sometimes, the scriptures can be confusing. But if we try to see how the scriptures can apply to us and pray for help, we can learn great things.

Ask: How does reading the scriptures make you feel? How can we rejoice more when we read?

Finish the lesson with your testimony and by helping your children set any goals for their scripture reading.

FOR TEENS & ADULTS

Begin the lesson by having everyone think of an apostle or prophet that has resonated with them. Have the group share who it is and why. Be prepared to share your own example.

Read aloud: Just as we often resonate with the words of a certain prophet, Nephi did too. He took great care to engrave the words of Isaiah onto metal plates. This wasn’t an easy process, but he believed the words of Isaiah were so important for his people and us today.

Have someone read 2 Nephi 25:26. Before you read it, ask everyone to think about why Nephi thinks the words of Isaiah, and all the scriptures, are important.

And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.

Ask: What does this scripture teach us about studying the words of God?

Read aloud: Isaiah’s prophecies about Christ can be confusing sometimes. Nephi gave counsel on how we can better understand Isaiah’s writings. He said to “liken his words unto” yourself and to seek to be “filled with the spirit of prophecy.”

Ask: What are some ways you’ve strived to have the spirit with you and liken the scriptures to your own life?

Finish the lesson by bearing your testimony.

FOR SINGLE STUDY

Read through 2 Nephi 11-25. As you read, write down all of the reasons you can rejoice. Then, strive to make a goal on how to find more joy.
