Abstract

On his second day among the Nephites, Jesus quoted extensively from Micah and Isaiah, so much so that nearly half of the verses recorded from Jesus’ speech are quotations. Jesus chose verses that taught specifically of God’s covenants with his people. When read in light of covenants, these quotations, and the speech as a whole, make more sense and become easier to apply to people today. Christ likely used Isaiah’s and Micah’s teachings to help us see that not only was his appearance in the Americas a fulfillment of prophecy, but so too is our latter-day covenantal work.
