“Lesson 12,” Book of Mormon: Gospel Doctrine Teacher’s Manual, 51–55
To help class members feel a greater desire to magnify their callings, be chaste, and invite others to come unto Christ.
Read, ponder, and pray about the following scriptures:
Jacob 1. Jacob magnifies his calling from the Lord to preach repentance to the people.
Jacob 2–3. Jacob warns against the love of riches, pride, and unchastity. He promises the pure in heart that God will console them in their afflictions as they look to Him, receive His word, and pray in faith.
Jacob 4. Jacob testifies of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. He warns the people against “looking beyond the mark.”
If Family Home Evening Video Supplement 2 (53277) is available, you may want to prepare to show “Repentance: It’s Never Too Late,” a six-minute segment.
If you use the attention activity, bring a magnifying glass to class (or draw one on the chalkboard before class begins).
The following material supplements the suggested lesson outline. You may want to use one or more of these ideas as part of the lesson.
