THE BOOK OF MORMON HISTORIC PUBLICATION SITE VIRTUAL TOUR - THE BINDARY
Lehi was a prophet in Jerusalem around 600 BC. Here he calls repentance to the people of Jerusalem. God then inspired Lehi to take his family and leave Jerusalem before it was destroyed because of wickedness.
Below right: Nephi Prepares for the Journey to the Promised Land:
With divine inspiration, Nephi constructed a ship for the journey to the new land, the Americas. His family took seeds, livestock, and other provisions for their new life. Essential among their possessions were the scriptures, engraved on brass plates.
Below left: Father Lehi Blesses His Posterity:
Shortly after arriving in the new land, Lehi pronounced blessings upon his descendants.
Below: Baptisms in the Waters of Mormon: Nephits organized a church and taught the gospel of Jesus Christ. Converts to the church were baptized by immersion as a sign of their acceptance of Christ's atonement and willingness to live by His teachings. The artist for this painting is Arnold Friberg and here in the art gallery we have a photographic print of the original oil painting.
Below: Christ's Ministry in the Promised Land - John Scott:
