Abstract

Overview of Jerusalem during Lehi’s lifetime and the probable impact of the reforms of Josiah on Book of Mormon thought. Deals with conditions in Jerusalem and surrounding nations about 600 B.C., the urgency of record-keeping in that era, the state of turmoil and flux, and the role of prophets like Jeremiah.

Reprinted in The Book of Mormon, It Begins with a Family, 14-22. Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1983.
