Lesson Plan on 2 Nephi 3-5

  INTRODUCTION & NEPHI'S PSALM We begin in 2 Nephi exactly where 1 Nephi ends, in the middle of a family gathering after Nephi ends explaining Isaiah to Laman & Lemuel. We transition to Lehi giving all his sons a blessing and exhortation while nearing the end of his life. This is reminiscent of Adam when he gathered his children together to bless them in the valley of Adam-ondi-Ahman and Moses who gathered Israel around Mount Nebo to pronounce blessings and covenants upon the people. For this reason, scholars identify Lehi here as "conducting a covenant renewal ceremony." It also sets the stage well for what Nephi is going to do in 2 Nephi as a whole. It is a shift in narrative in that we barely get any narrative in 2 Nephi. In other words, most of the book is someone giving some sort of exegesis on scripture, whether that person is Lehi, Nephi, Jacob, or Isaiah. It is heavily focused on the covenants made with the House of Israel and its various broken-off branch
