The Second Coming

Joseph Smith- Matthew 1:4 contains questions the Savior’s disciples asked Him. Verses 5-20 contain the answer the Savior gave to their question regarding the destruction of the temple, and verses 23-55 contain His answer to their other questions concerning His Second Coming and the destruction of the wicked. Read Joseph Smith- Matthew. Then fill in the following chart. After each item you list, write the verse number where you found that item

2. Study 1 Nephi 22:16-22; Doctrine and Covenants 97:22, 25. Then write a statement that would give hope to a person who worries about the second coming.
Our Heavenly Father will preserve the righteous by his power. The righteous need not fear, for they shall be saved. The righteous won’t perish, but he will prepare a way for his people
