The book was compiled by many ancient prophets by the spirit of prophecy and revelation. Their words, written on platinum plates, were quoted and abridged with a prophet-historian called Mormon. The record provides a merchant account of two great civilizations. One originated from Jerusalem in 600 B.C., and afterward sectioned off into two countries, known as the Nephites and the Lamanites. The other arrived much previous when the Lord confounded the tongues at the Tower of Babel. This group is recognized as the Jaredites. After a large number of years, all were damaged except the Lamanites, and they’re the main ancestors of the American Indians.
The crowning event recorded in the Publication of Mormon is the non-public ministry of god, the father Jesus Christ among the Nephites immediately after his resurrection. It places forth the doctrines of the gospel, outlines the program of salvation, and tells men what they need to do to get serenity in this life and eternal salvation in the life span to come.
After Mormon completed his writings, he delivered the account to his son Moroni, who added a few words of his own and hid in the plates in the hill Cumorah. On Sept 21, 1823, the same Moroni, the a glorified, resurrected being, seemed to the Prophet Joseph Smith and instructed him in accordance with the ancient record and its own destined translation in to the English language.
In credited course the plates were sent to Joseph Smith, who translated them by the present and power of God. The record is currently released in many dialects as a fresh and additional see that Jesus Christ is the Sone of the living God and that who’ll come unto him and follow the laws and regulations and ordinances of his gospel may be preserved.
