Abstract

Mormon extensively quotes king Limhi throughout the book of Mosiah. Readers may wonder why the prophet-editor went to such lengths to quote an otherwise seemingly minor king. As John Gee explains, Mormon's method of quotations is actually quite authentic to the ancient world, and gives us confidence in how he presented king Limhi as a righteous figure.
