Abstract

Jacob’s descendants wrote very little on the plates left to their care, and sometimes it is easy to see them as lazy or negligent. Few readers, however, have noticed that they diligently adhere to a pattern, satisfying criteria set out by Nephi when he passed the plates on to his brother Jacob. Studying this pattern gives new perspective and appreciation for these often neglected voices in the Book of Mormon.
