Abstract

Jesus and other heavenly messengers spoke to Book of Mormon prophets before the Savior's appearance in the New World, These prophets may have learned New Testament-like phrases directly from them. Part 4 of this series will discuss specific examples of this potential source of New Testament language in the Book of Mormon. Note that Nephi and the apostle John were given essentially the same vision (1 Nephi 14:24–25), although they were greatly separated by time and space. If the Holy Ghost was able to give the same vision to both Nephi and John, He may have done the same for other prophets in both the Bible and the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon itself is “another testament of Jesus Christ” which contains many teachings, prophecies, and revelations that confirm and further help us understand similar ideas revealed in the Bible.
