Click here to read 2 Nephi 25-26

I love studying this 1 Nephi 25 for so many different reasons. Some of my favorite verses were vv. 23,26,29. Some of my favorite things it taught were: (1) keys to understanding Isaiah; (2) the importance of Isaiah’s writings; (3) the scattering and gathering of Israel; (4) Nephi’s testimony of Jesus Christ’s ministry and mission.
What really stands out to me during is Nephi’s sincere desire to be so PLAIN that “no man can err” (vv. 7,20,28). This seems to be the pattern of The Master Teacher that Nephi has espoused. It reminds me of a quote by President Harold B. Lee: “You’re to teach the old doctrines, not so plainly that they can just understand, but you must teach the doctrines of the Church so plainly that no one can misunderstand.” (“Loyalty” [address to religious educators, July 8, 1966], p. 5.) That is what I truly love about Nephi’s writings. His “plainness” allows him to testify and teach so powerfully of Jesus Christ. My testimony is strengthen in the Savior every time I read the writings of Nephi. He also gives commentary on Isaiah to help it be more “plain” to us so that “no man can err”. THANK YOU, NEPHI!!!
