Abstract

Asserts that “one of the most important of all Hebrew motifs, the exodus cycle, is woven throughout 1 Nephi.” “The exodus cycle is a pattern of enslavement and divine rescue used often in the Bible and other Jewish writings.” Because Nephi was raised a Jew and knew Hebrew literary styles, he used this literary method in writing his own record.
