"For Behold, the Promises," 2 Nephi 10:1-2

2 Nephi 10:1-2

Jacob, the day following his profound and insightful discourse in chapter 9, again resumes the discussion of covenants that are extended to the children of the House of Israel. He is particularly interested in focusing on the righteous remnant that will proceed from their own lineage.

In verse 2, the driving point of this teaching is that these are the the promises that apply to "our children" in this life. These are not theoretical ideas or vague references of general application. "...God will be merciful unto many; and our children shall be restored, that they may come to that which will give them the true knowledge of their Redeemer," (vs. 2).
