Mosiah 15

Note the unique things that Abinadi teaches in this chapter about the Savior when compared to previous Book of Mormon teachings about Him:  He is the Father and the Son; he would gain victory over death and have the power to make intercession for the children of men; His atonement would make Him compassionate towards the children of men; He would ascend into heaven; those who have believed the prophets and looked forward to His day are His seed; those of the first resurrection and little children will have eternal life through Christ.  Both Nephi and King Benjamin had taught powerfully about the Savior’s life and mission.  Abinadi touches briefly on that, but focuses more on the impact the Atonement would have on the world.  Incredible speech!
