“You Must Repent and Be Born Again to Inherit the Kingdom of God”

Monte S. Nyman

These verses contain basically the same message that Alma gave to the people in Zarahemla (Alma 5:49–52). Alma does not mention the entering into a covenant to keep the commandments with the Lamb of God (Alma 7:15), but the covenant is mentioned or implied many other times throughout the Book of Mormon (see Alma 5:5–8; 18:8–10; see also 2 Nephi 31:9–21; Mosiah 27:24–31; Alma 36:18–26; and 3 Nephi 11:23–39).
