Lesson 6: Free to Choose Liberty and Eternal Life

2 Nephi 2:1–10. Lehi teaches that redemption comes through the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
2 Nephi 2:11–30. Lehi teaches that opposition is necessary in Heavenly Father’s plan and that we are “free to choose liberty and eternal life … or to choose captivity and death.”
