Digging Deeper

Watch the Church’s Book of Mormon video for 1 Nephi 1–2 and 1 Nephi 3–5.

For a closer examination at what life was like in Jerusalem in 600 BC, I recommend Glimpses of Lehi’s Jerusalem. This is really helpful in understanding the context of the world Lehi and Nephi lived in.

Here’s a link to the “Pray like a prophet spreadsheet.”

Some have wondered about the location of the Valley of Lemuel. If you’re interested in learning more, check out this video: Have the Valley of Lemuel and the River Laman Been Found?

Have you ever wondered, “If Lehi was a descendant of Joseph, why was he living in Jerusalem?” If so, you can find a possible answer here.
