Alma and Amulek Are Delivered by the Power of God | Alma 8–15 | Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon prophet Alma the younger preaches to the people in Ammonihah and gets thrown out of their city. An angel of the Lord tells Alma to return to Ammonihah. When Alma returns to the city, a man named Amulek welcomes him into his home and allows Alma to teach his family.

Together, Alma and Amulek preach to the people in Ammonihah and command them to repent. Alma testifies that Jesus Christ will come into the world to redeem His people. Alma encourages them to have faith in Jesus Christ, repent, and be baptized.

The leaders in Ammonihah are angry and try to put Alma into prison, but Amulek defends him. Amulek teaches a man named Zeezrom and tells him why the Savior will come to earth. He teaches that Jesus Christ’s Resurrection will make it possible for everyone to have an immortal body. Zeezrom believes Amulek’s teachings and repents.

The leaders of Ammonihah are angry with the believers and throw them and their sacred writings into a fiery pit, killing them. Then the leaders put Alma and Amulek into prison and beat them and mock them for many days. Finally, Alma asks the Lord to deliver them from prison. The Lord causes the prison walls to tumble to the ground, killing everyone except Alma and Amulek.

Zeezrom becomes very sick because he thinks Alma and Amulek are dead because of his wickedness. Alma and Amulek heal Zeezrom, and he is baptized.

Based on Alma 8–15.
