Ben and Shiloh talk about Samuel the Lamanite preaching to and calling the Nephites to repentance. Why did the Lord send a Lamanite to call repentance to the Nephites when they already had Nephi, the prophet, there preaching the same message? The pattern of Samuel’s preaching reflect the same patterns of Abinadi and Alma the Younger, as he preaches the good news and signs of the Savior’s birth. Shiloh and Ben discuss the nature of God in how it relates to Helaman 12:3 and to Samuel’s words of God’s active vengeance. Is there a different way to view God than as an actively vengeful God?
