You might be aware that 2 Nephi 25, which follows immediately after the lengthy quotation, contains a few words of general advice regarding the interpretation of Isaiah. We’ll spend today looking at that. But then 2 Nephi 25 goes on to provide Nephi’s own prophetic summary of Isaiah 2–14, in a passage that’s usually ignored by people working on Isaiah in the Book of Mormon. That’s where we’ll focus next time. What we hope to get out of this lecture and the next, then, is a bit of clarity regarding what Nephi saw in the chapters we’ve been reviewing. I think we’ll learn a lot.
