Abstract

The Israelite exodus of the Old Testament parallels certain Book of Mormon passages and demonstrates that God can and will deliver his people from bondage. Several Book of Mormon characters recalled the Israelite exodus—Nephi, to provide encouragement for his brothers; Helaman, to members of the Gadianton robbers; Alma the Elder, when he fled from King Noah; and the people of King Limhi used it as a pattern.
