Abstract

This series refers to the discovery of “sacred stones,'' upon which are inscribed Hebrew characters, one of which reads “may the Lord have mercy upon me a Nephite.” Scholars wonder where these people who spoke Hebrew came from, and the Book of Mormon provides the answers. Pratt claims that the Nephites landed in Chile near the city of Valparaiso. Later, Hagoth and others sailed to North America (Alma 63:4-12 and Helaman 3:3-16). The Nephites knew Hebrew and Egyptian and wrote in reformed Egyptian. The second part discusses the Brass Plates and Hebrew in the Americas.
