Abstract

The prophet Jacob in the Book of Mormon harshly condemned those who seek riches before seeking the Kingdom of God. What were the historical and social circumstances among the Nephites that motived this condemnation and how do Jacob's words in the Book of Mormon harmonize with the teachings of Jesus in the New Testament? Read together, the Bible and the Book of Mormon teach powerful principles about how to righteous attain and manage wealth and monetary resources.
