King Noah has led his people into wickedness by dismissing the priests chosen by his father and appointing his own wicked ones. Abinadi comes forth crying repentance and urging the people to turn towards the Lord. When he is arrested and brought before the king, he stands boldly before King Noah and gives us some incredible insight on justice and mercy, why Christ is often referred to as the father and the Son, and is a beautiful example of declaring the truth even when you may feel all alone.
Abinadi stands as a type of Christ and his efforts ripple through the entirety of the Book of Mormon as his one and only convert, Alma, and his descendants keep the records.
