Abstract

As recorded in 3 Nephi 24–25, Jesus Christ provided the Book of Mormon people with the content of Malachi 3–4, telling the Nephites to write them down (3 Nephi 24:1). The words of Malachi, one of the later Old Testament prophets, were important enough that the Father commanded Jesus to supply the Nephites with his words. The likely reason for this is because Malachi’s words tell about those who will be destroyed in the Second Coming and those who will survive the Second Coming, which is specifically what Christ was teaching in this section of 3 Nephi.
