Alma 16

16:5-6 What is the ‘spirit of prophecy’ and is it available to us today? What does it look like in your life?

16:9-11 Why was Ammonihah destroyed? Why do you think Alma recorded it?

16:16 Why does the Lord require unity and equality among His people? What would this look like today? See also John 17:11, 20-22; 4 Nephi 1:2-3, 15-16; D&C 78:6-7.

16:21 How does the destruction of Ammonihah and the way the spared saints act apply to us?

“The righteous exemplified in these chapters by Alma and the Ammonihahite believers; the temporarily distracted but decent people like Amulek; and even the enemies to the cause of truth, whether they will repent as did Zeezrom, or reject the invitation as did most of the people of Ammonihah. Everyone is accountable for how they respond to the Spirit.” ~ LE Dahl, 1987, “The Plan of Redemption – Taught and Rejected.” Essay. In Studies in Scripture, Volume 7: 1 Nephi to Alma 29, edited by Kent P. Jackson, 316. Salt Lake City, UT: Deseret Book. Co.
