Something that stands out to me in these pages is how to prosper in the Promised Land. The Lord provided prophets and plates to preserve and prosper His people in the Promised Land (that is my attempt at Maxwellian alliteration…). Within these few pages we find the rise and demise of different civilizations, and generations within those civilizations, based on their diligence in heeding the words of the prophets of God. Those who preserve and obey God’s word prosper; those who do not falter. Those who obey the Lord prevail; those who rebel fail. So, do you want to prosper of falter; do you want to prevail or fail? The Lord has given us everything we need to succeed!
These few pages cover many different individuals, groups of people, eras, and years. Below you will find several charts that may help you study this material.
Below you will find the four families of Nephite record keepers of the Book of Mormon listed chronologically, along with their approximate dates of birth and other important information. If a date is not found in or tied directly to a specific verse, then the information has been deduced from general historical information. This list is similar to the chart above and can be used to document and explain the relationships between keepers of the plates of Nephi.
