Book of Mormon study for May 22nd, 2016

Lesson 19: None Could Deliver Them but the Lord


To encourage us to renew our determination to honor their baptismal covenants and trust in the Lord.


Mosiah 18 Alma teaches the baptismal covenant, baptizes a group of people, and establishes the Church among the people.

Mosiah 19 King Noah betrays his people and suffers death by fire. Noah’s son Limhi becomes king.

Mosiah 20–22 Limhi’s people are brought into bondage by the Lamanites. After trying to deliver themselves from bondage, they repent and turn to the Lord. The Lord eventually delivers them from bondage.

Mosiah 23–24 Alma’s people are taken captive by the Lamanites. Amulon, who had been one of Noah’s priests, rules over them. They turn to the Lord, and He makes their burdens light and delivers them from bondage.
