    How Are Samuel the Lamanite and the Biblical Prophet Samuel Similar? #576

    01/09/2020 Duração: 09min

    Samuel the Lamanite shares striking similarities to his namesake, Samuel of the Old Testament. Both Samuel the Lamanite and the biblical Samuel had similar prophetic calls, foretold a coming Messiah, wielded God’s sword of justice, and subverted societal expectations. These similarities highlight how Samuel the Lamanite and Samuel the Israelite both fulfilled archetypal traits of true biblical prophets, despite their unassuming backgrounds. The Nephites would not have expected a prophet to come from among the Lamnites, but the Lord clearly qualifies whom He calls. Read at bit.ly/knowhy576

    These names and the narrative in Helaman 1 are arguably more true to life and consistent with the ancient Egyptian origins of the Book of Mormon than any fiction writer in 1829 could have hoped. bit.ly/knowhy574

    Why Did Alma Draw on the Teachings of Abinadi? #571

    28/07/2020 Duração: 05min

    Astute readers of the Book of Mormon may have noticed that “Alma [the Younger] shows an affinity for the words of Abinadi.” Nowhere is this affinity more evident than in his counsel to his son Corianton, where research by John L. Hilton III indicates that Alma made at least thirteen allusions or direct quotations to Abinadi’s teachings (see table and appendix). Read more at bit.ly/knowhy571

    Why Did Alma See God Surrounded by Angels? #570

    20/07/2020 Duração: 06min

    Alma 36 is a powerful story of repentance and redemption, but why did Alma tell it to Helaman instead of Corianton, his son in most need of repentance? Scholars have found that Alma is also relating a prophetic call narrative, which conforms to the expectations of ancient Israel and pre-Columbian America. Thus, Alma related his own prophetic commission to his eldest son and successor as he simultaneously commissioned Helaman to his own prophetic call. Read at bit.ly/knowhy570

    This week for Come, Follow Me we read about Faith. Alma’s metaphor would have naturally resonated with peasant farmers of a predominately agricultural society, much like the Savior’s Parable of the Sower was relatable to his audience of laborers and agriculturalists in Palestine. Yet the imagery reviewed here suggests that there were additional factors that made this metaphor meaningful within the possible cultural backdrop of Book of Mormon peoples. Read at bit.ly/knowhy569

  • Why Does the Book of Mormon Use So Many Different Terms for “Law”? #568

    Why Does the Book of Mormon Use So Many Different Terms for “Law”? #568

    07/07/2020 Duração: 08min

    Throughout the Book of Mormon a set of synonymous (or near-synonymous) legal terms is often used to emphasize the righteousness or obedience of a group or an individual. Latter-day Saint legal scholar John W. Welch has explained that this seemingly redundant repetition is what’s called a “pleonastic list,” and is similar to the list of near-synonymous legal terms found in the Hebrew Bible.

    Why Did Alma Respond in the Way He Did to the “Order of Nehor” in Ammonihah? #566

    16/06/2020 Duração: 07min

    The people of Ammonihah were of the order of Nehor, so it can be useful to consider Alma's teachings to them, especially in Alma 12-13, as a response to the five main teachings of Nehor summarized in Alma 1:3-4. In this light, it becomes clear why Alma focused on the plan of redemption and the true order of the priesthood. Read at bit.ly/knowhy566
