They delve into the context of the sermon and how Jacob used Isaiah in the sermon and how it addressed what was happening in their lives at the time, and how Christ and Covenant were the answer. They speak of Jacob's exploration of his people's covenant relationship with God, and what that has to do with us. They also explore how the theme of not being cast off from God and that covenant relationship with Him is much of the theme of 2 Nephi. They speak of the infinite power of Christ's atoning sacrifice and what that has to do with the Nephite need at the time and our need in our day. They show how Jacob teaches about how to take advantage of Christ's atoning sacrifice and what makes it difficult for us to do so. They also look at the joy that is available for those who do take advantage of Christ's atoning sacrifice and of God's redeeming desires.
