Why Did Riplakish Construct a Beautiful Throne?

The book of Ether’s portrayal of an elegant and elaborate throne very early in ancient American history is entirely correct. This led one scholar to ask, “How did Joseph Smith get this detail right?” However one wishes to answer that question, the study of early pre-Columbian thrones sheds light on this story. https://knowhy.bookofmormoncentral.org/content/why-did-riplakish-construct-a-beautiful-throne #BookofMormon #DiscoverTheBook #ShareGoodness #Mormon #LDS #Faith #Throne #King #Olmec

Why Would Zerahemnah Not Swear an Oath to Moroni?

After attacking Moroni and having his scalp removed by a Nephite soldier, the Lamanite commander Zerahemnah eventually agreed to an oath of peace. Moroni invoked the name of God in the brief covenant-making ceremony, which was standard procedure for ratifying a covenant or oath in the ancient Near East. The action of Moroni’s soldier who lifted up the Lamanite commander’s scalp also makes perfect sense from an ancient perspective. His pronouncement closely follows a pattern of oath-making…

Why Did Nephi Rely on Earlier Testimonies of Christ?

In trying to convince the people to fix the wickedness of their laws, Nephi appealed to the testimonies of those who long before had “testified of the coming of Christ”. Nephi’s calling of witnesses forms a superb example of what has been identified by many biblical scholars as a “prophet lawsuit.” https://knowhy.bookofmormoncentral.org/content/why-did-nephi-rely-on-earlier-testimonies-of-christ #Witnesses #Testimony #BookofMormon #Mormon #LDS #Faith #Law

The Book of Mormon notes the gruesome detail of Coriantumr cutting off (most of) the head of Shiz. After which, Shiz pushes up on his hands and gasps for air. In the past, some have considered this st Book Of Mormon Stories, Spiritual Church, Lds Seminary, Mormon Messages, Lds Books, Lds Memes, Spiritual Paintings, Lds Scriptures, M48

How Could Shiz Move and Breathe After Being Beheaded?

During the final Jaredite battle, when Coriantumr cut off the head of Shiz, Shiz “raised up on his hands and fell; and after that he had struggled for breath, he died” (Ether 15:31). When someone is decapitated through the base of the skull, certain muscles in the arms and legs contract, as does the rib cage. This caused Shiz to raise up on his hands, and caused his rib cage to expand and contract automatically, making it sound like Shiz was “struggling for breath.” This is a reminder, both…

Mosiah 17 Recognizing the implications of Abinadi having his skin “scourged … with faggots,” makes a difference in how his death is understood, and the level of pain and torment he endured. Abinadi deserves his place among the great Christian martyrs.

Why was Abinadi Scourged with Faggots?

The story of Abinadi suffering “death by fire” has most often evoked images of the prophet burning at the stake. Yet the Book of Mormon curiously describes Abinadi as being “scourged . . . with faggots,” suggesting he was instead beaten with bundles of burning sticks. Though it may seem strange, there is compelling evidence for a similar practice among the Aztecs, as well as the more contemporary Maya and other Native American cultures throughout the Americas. Despite knowing the terrible…
