“Never Has Man Believed in Me As Thou Hast”
To help class members understand from the example of the brother of Jared how faith can enable us to enter the presence of the Lord eternally.
Read, ponder, and pray about the following scriptures:
Ether 1. The Lord grants the requests of the brother of Jared and promises to lead the Jaredites to a promised land.
Ether 2. The Jaredites begin their journey to the promised land.
Ether 3. The brother of Jared sees Jesus Christ.
Ether 4. Moroni seals up the writings of the brother of Jared until the Gentiles repent and exercise faith.
Ether 6:1–12. The Jaredites travel to the promised land, and when they arrive they praise the Lord for His tender mercies over them.
Additional reading: Genesis 11:1–9; Mosiah 8:7–11.
