The Slaying of Laban: Mormon Sunday School: 002

RFM covers 1 Nephi 1-5, with special emphasis on the problematic story of Nephi murdering Laban!

    In the Come Follow Me manual on the LDS gospel library app, check out the subsection titled “‘I was led by the Spirit.’” It says, “In 1 Nephi 4:5–18, what impresses you about Nephi’s ability to recognize and follow the Spirit?” That scripture reference (1 Nephi 4:5–18) is the story of Nephi killing Laban.

    I’m not sure if RFM just missed that or what, but I was a bit shocked and disappointed to find such a large oversight, especially since this episode seems to stem from that story having been completely omitted from the Come Follow Me manual.

    1. Thanks for pointing that out! I am not going from the app, though, and am not sure why this is not reflected in the regular Come Follow Me manual available on the church website. That is the manual I am using for purposes of these lessons.
