The Things Which My Father Saw:  Approaches to Lehi’s Dream and Nephi’s Vision  

The 40th Annual Brigham Young University Sidney B. Sperry symposium

This book is comprised of twenty scholarly papers addressing the amazing complexity and symbolism of the dream/vision, and its applications in an ancient middle eastern culture, to the whole of Nephite civilization, and to Book of Mormon readers today.  I highly recommend reading these papers to gain a more profound understanding of these chapters so important to understanding all of The Book of Mormon.

Lehi’s Vision of the Tree of Life, 1992

Robert Yellowhair, Snowflake, Arizona, United States

Oil on canvas (121 x 76 cm). 1992

The artist uses traditional symbols to express his belief that Native Americans are descendants of Lehi. Brother Yellowhair, a Navajo from the Zuni clan, has adapted the essential themes of Lehi’s dream of the tree of life to a Native American setting. A piñon tree, brilliant with light, symbolizes the tree of life; the pine cones are the white fruit. Father Lehi is dressed as a Hopi priest because Hopis are acknowledged among Native Americans of the Southwest as the traditional religious leaders. Sariah is depicted as Crow Mother, the first mother of the Zuni. Nephi, on his mother’s right, is depicted as the visionary Comanche chief, Quainapaker, from the early twentieth century. Sam is depicted as the great peace-loving Shoshone chief, Washakie. Laman and Lemuel stand in the background. The “great and spacious building” is a composite of all the domestic architecture of the Southwest tribes. – Ensign October 1992

MUSIC TO ACCOMPANY THE BOOK OF MORMON


Moroni 10:34

After a long and lonely life, Moroni prepared to bury the gold plates for the last time.  As he bids farewell to his readers, he peacefully anticipates his death, promising to meet them at the “pleasing bar of God.”

Libera sings “Going Home,” music by Antonin Dvorak (“Largo,” from Symphony #9), and lyrics by one of Dvorak’s students, Willliam Arms Fisher (1861-1948).  Fisher wrote, “The Largo, with its haunting English horn solo, is the outpouring of Dvorak's own home-longing, with something of the loneliness of far-off prairie horizons, the faint memory of the red-man's bygone days, and a sense of the tragedy of the black-man as it sings in his ‘spirituals.’ Deeper still it is a moving expression of that nostalgia of the soul all human beings feel.”

The sensitive Book of Mormon reader may find that the song evokes the tragedy of the destruction of Moroni’s people through a deeper dive into the history of the pre-Columbian peoples of the Promised Land.  Like Moroni’s writings, it plunges through human suffering to arise triumphant in the end.

THROUGH THE BOOK OF MORMON WITH GOD


2 Nephi 3 is sometimes known as the four Josephs chapter.  It is an amazing prophecy grouping compiled by Lehi to teach his son Joseph about God’s advance planning.  Lehi has spoken to Laman and Lemuel and exhorted them to be righteous, but he knows they will not.  He has spoken to Jacob and taught the eternal importance of choice and agency, and he knows that many of his descendents will not choose to follow God.  He now concludes this trilogy of chapters by showing that in spite of how individuals reject His counsel, He will be merciful to their children, even many generations later, and provide for them to have the opportunity to choose to accept His plan and gospel.

Through the Book of Mormon with God

1 Nephi 20

This is by far the most important page to read on this website.  

You will be astounded with the message which Isaiah wrote in the Bible 2,800 years ago, as recorded in Isaiah 48, and more perfectly transcribed in 1 Nephi 20.

This message is vital for everyone to read and understand!
