Abstract

One of the passages that Nephi quotes to his people is Isaiah 2:2–3, which talks about the Lord’s house being established in the mountain tops. Nephi and his people probably likened this to themselves and the temple they built in the land of Nephi, which was at a higher elevation than the surrounding area. Today, however, modern prophets and apostles have taught that the prophecy was fulfilled in many different ways by the Salt Lake Temple. Isaiah’s prophecies often have multiple meanings, and can be likened to many different situations.
