We only know a few of them. I have a friend who is writing a book entitled, “His Obliging Grace.” It is “amazing grace,” but it is also “obliging grace” because we are obliged and welcome to live in that relationship. Book of Mormon Central, “Why Do Early Nephite Prophets Speak about the Scattering of the Jews? . Is he a descendant of Jesse? Book of Mormon Central, “How Does Nephi Help Us Understand Isaiah? The old Jewish tradition is that they were collected in the days of King Hezekiah and finally put into one collection then, but we do not know how decisions were made for selecting the order of the Isaiah writings. Isaiah would be prophesying at a time when Israel would be destroyed. Nephi glories in plainness—Isaiah’s prophecies will be understood in the last days—The Jews will return from Babylon, crucify the Messiah, and be scattered and scourged—They will be restored when they believe in the Messiah—He will first come six hundred years after Lehi left Jerusalem—The Nephites keep the law of Moses and believe in Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel. How will the Jews eventually be convinced that Jesus Christ is the Messiah they anticipated for thousands of years? Why is the Lord’s Hand ‘Stretched Out Still’? 2 Nephi 10:6), The stay will be taken away from Judah; Jerusalem will be ruined; proud men and women will fall, “What could I have done more [for] my vineyard?” (v. 4); “my people are gone into captivity” (v. 13); the anger of the Lord is against his people, but he will still lift up an ensign for them (vv.

Often, the Savior was referred to as the Only Begotten of the Father, the Father of Heaven and Earth, and the Son of God. Each little section is a separate prophecy. This was a foreshadowing of the three nights and days of darkness when Jesus would be crucified, would die, and would lie in the tomb. and remember, after ye are reconciled unto God, that it is only in and through the grace of God that ye are saved.” Nephi seems to be paraphrasing and simplifying Jacob’s statement to make it plain. This is normally interpreted as “a virgin” but can also mean “a young girl.” In the ancient world, women married at a young age and would be young when they conceived. (2 Nephi 11:8),” KnoWhy 39 (February 23, 2016). Among the many biblical prophecies that Moroni spoke to Joseph Smith, words in Isaiah 11 (2 Nephi 21) were declared to be “about to be fulfilled.” Isaiah 11 speaks of “the stem of Jesse,” “a rod [or branch] that will come out of the stem of Jess,” and a “root of Jesse.” D&C 113:1–6 explains that the stem of Jesse refers to Jesus Christ.
