3 Nephi 18- The End!!!
To Ponder and Apply:
How is "hope" a Christ-like quality? Why does the Book of Mormon end with the destruction of 2 civilizations? (Remember, it was written for our day). What hope can come from those stories? What can we learn from those people? Why would Mormon and Moroni write what they did in the final teachings of the Book of Momon?
Bonus: Liken the Scriptures
Insert your name whenever possible to "help make scriptural teachings more personal" (Studying the Scriptures, Book of Mormon Student Study Guide, 2000). Also, sometimes questions are asked and no answer is given. Take the time to answer those questions as they apply in your own life.
"...for I did liken all scriptures unto us, that it might be for our profit and learning" (1 Nephi 19:23).
