Isaiah in Second Nephi 12–24

695

It is interesting that this week’s Come, Follow Me study is all from the Book of Isaiah in the Book of Mormon, and its witness of Christ. Jacob used two chapters of Isaiah (5052:2) to teach his people about the Savior and the latter-day gathering of Isreal. Then in 2 Nephi 11, Nephi explains that he is including  “more of the words of Isaiah,” because he delights in them, likens them to his people and uses them as a third witness of Christ.

He wrote that Isaiah “saw my Redeemer, even as I have seen him. And my brother, Jacob, also has seen him as I have seen him; wherefore, I will send their words forth unto my children to prove unto them that my words are true. Wherefore, by the words of three, God hath said, I will establish my word… And my soul delighteth in proving unto my people that save Christ should come all men must perish.”

I am a retiree from Scouting. There I blogged for VoiceOfScouting.org, a site with more than 250,000 readers. During 42 years in the workplace, I've had many years senior level management with the BSA, professional associations, and high tech user groups. My background includes capital fundraising; outdoor adventure program development; property and construction management; event/conference planning; risk management and safety; lobbying federal, state and local government agencies; public relations; strategic planning; member advocacy and staff/volunteer training. Along the way, I have also taught Gospel Doctrine Classes and been both the ward and stake Sunday School President. In these settings, I have seen teachers and class members minimize Isaiah, a book Christ has commanded us to "search diligently." (3 Ne 23:1) With that in mind, I will do my best to explore and post my discoveries about the book of Isaiah. I am not a Bible scholar; like you, I read Isaiah in the Old Testament cycle of study in LDS Gospel Doctrine Classes and again in the Book of Mormon Cycle, so this is a whole new scripture adventure for me.
