Day 79: 4Nephi This is a roller coaster chapter, right? From “the people were all converted unto the Lord, upon all the face of the land, both Nephites and Lamanites, and there were no contentions and disputations among them, and every man did deal justly one with another” (v2) to “both the people of Nephi and the Lamanites had become exceedingly wicked one like another… There were none that were righteous save it were the disciples of Jesus” (v45-46). One thing I hadn’t really paid attention to before was the missionary work that went on to get everyone converted to Christ. It wasn’t just Christ’s visit that made that happen. We already read that in 3Ne27v1, “the disciples of Jesus were journeying and were preaching the things which they had both heard and seen, and we’re baptizing in the name of Jesus.” But it took a couple of years (see v2). Bless those missionary disciples!
