Lesson 2: All Things According to His Will


1 Nephi 1–2. Lehi learns in a vision that Jerusalem will be destroyed. He warns the people to repent, but they reject him and seek his life. The Lord tells Lehi to take his family and leave Jerusalem. Lehi and his family depart into the wilderness.

1 Nephi 3–4. Nephi and his brothers return to Jerusalem to obtain the plates of brass from Laban.

1 Nephi 5. Nephi and his brothers bring the plates back to their family. These plates enable Lehi’s family to preserve for their descendants their language, their genealogy, and the teachings and commandments of God.

1 Nephi 7. Nephi and his brothers return to Jerusalem to persuade Ishmael and his family to join them in the wilderness.

Additional reading: Mosiah 1:3–7; Alma 3:11–12.
