Abstract

These seven things help us understand: Nephi gives a detailed account so he would not be misunderstood; he had no desire to take Laban’s life; Old Testament prophets were likewise commanded; Laban was guilty of atrocities toward Nephi’s family; modern revelation condones taking the life of a wicked man; Nephi was commanded by the Lawgiver; obedience was the focal point of the story.
