Where do you see the Savior in the story? Is His atonement or attributes represented in the verses you read? How could these verses be an example or type for Christ? Don't just look for direct symbols of Christ but look for things that show how Christ might act or how he may have influenced a person's behavior.
Look For: Look for verses or phrases that describe Christ's attributes, atonement, miracles, love, etc.
Example: Jeremiah 9:24 shows a list of attributes that the Lord delights in. If we are to "know" him to have eternal life, ought not we know his likes and dislikes?
In Jacob 5, we can look for how the master of the vineyard cares for and preserves the trees as an example of how Christ cares for and yields his patience unto us.
