Abstract

The Abinadi and Alma narratives in Mosiah often allude to the Exodus narrative. Both the Pharaoh and King Noah caused the people to work on their extensive building project for them. Both Moses and Abinadi escaped people who were attempting to kill them and then returned to prophesy at the Lord’s command. Both the Israelites and Alma’s people fled into the wilderness from the king. Both Moses and Abinadi opposed priests of the royal court. Both Moses and Alma gave commandments to the people while in the wilderness. The Lord tried the faith of both the Israelite and Nephites, but then delivered them and helped them arrive at their destination.
