Amulek's Teachings to the Zoramites

The Word in Christ

Alma 34:1

Alma sits down, and Amulek gets up to teach the people.

And now it came to pass that after Alma had spoken these words unto them he sat down upon the ground, and Amulek arose and began to teach them, saying:

Alma 34:2

You must know of the coming of Christ, the Son of God, because there were ample teachings about Him prior to your dissension.

My brethren, I think that it is impossible that ye should be ignorant of the things which have been spoken concerning the coming of Christ, who is taught by us to be the Son of God; yea, I know that these things were taught unto you bountifully before your dissension from among us.

Alma 34:3–4

Alma taught about faith and patience in affliction, and to experiment of the word’s goodness.

And as ye have desired of my beloved brother that he should make known unto you what ye should do, because of your afflictions; and he hath spoken somewhat unto you to prepare your minds; yea, and he hath exhorted you unto faith and to patience— Yea, even that ye would have so much faith as even to plant the word in your hearts, that ye may try the experiment of its goodness.

Alma 34:5–6

The great question is weather or not this ’word’ is in Christ ; Alma has demonstrated that it is.

And we have beheld that the great question which is in your minds is whether the word be in the Son of God, or whether there shall be no Christ. And ye also beheld that my brother has proved unto you, in many instances, that the word is in Christ unto salvation.

Alma 34:7

Alma appealed to Zenos, Zenock, and Moses to demonstrate the truth of these things.

My brother has called upon the words of Zenos, that redemption cometh through the Son of God, and also upon the words of Zenock; and also he has appealed unto Moses, to prove that these things are true.

Alma 34:8

Amulek testifies of the truth of the coming of Christ, and knows that Christ will take upon the him the transgressions of his people.

And now, behold, I will testify unto you of myself that these things are true. Behold, I say unto you, that I do know that Christ shall come among the children of men, to take upon him the transgressions of his people, and that he shall atone for the sins of the world; for the Lord God hath spoken it.
