Sept 26 2017 1 Nephi 11 – 15 Lesson 4 by Rebekah Ellsworth

“God hath not revealed anything to Joseph, but what He will make known unto the Twelve, and even the least Saint may know all things as fast as he is able to bear them” – Joseph Smith, Jr., History of the Church, 3:380

“The Spirit made explicit that the Tree of Life and its precious fruit are symbols of Christ’s redemption” – Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, Christ and the New Covenant: The Messianic Message of the Book of Mormon [1997], 160

“The tree of life . . . is the love of God (see 1 Nephi 11:25). The love of God for His children is most profoundly expressed in His gift of Jesus as our Redeemer: ‘God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son’ ( John 3:16). To partake of the love of God is to partake of Jesus’ Atonement and the emancipations and joys which it can bring”  – Elder Neal A. Maxwell, Conference Report, Oct. 1999, 6; or Ensign, Nov. 1999, 8
