Book of Mormon Day 77

Day 77: 3Ne22-26 Christ recites scriptures from the Old Testament to the Nephite people: Isaiah, Malachi. The words of Isaiah they already have, but they are so important that he shares them again and says, (ch23v2) “And now, behold, I say unto you, that ye ought to search these things. Yea, a commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently, for great are the words of Isaiah.” Then he shares Malachi, which they did not have. He tells them, (ch26v2) “These scriptures which ye had not with you, the Father commanded that I should give unto you; for it was wisdom in him that they should be given unto future generations.” This shows the importance of scriptures and the words of the prophets in keeping a people faithful to the Lord. I also am so fascinated in the rest of what Jesus taught the people that was not written. I hope that we will receive what is written so that we can receive the rest. V9 “When they shall have received this, which is expedient that they should have first, to try their faith, and if it shall so be that they shall believe these things then shall the greater things be made manifest unto them.”
