The geographic size of the city and land of Zarahemla depends on the time period being discussed in the Book of Mormon. A review of the various scriptures relating to the geographic size and growth of the city and the land of Zarahemla is very instructive in determining their probable location and, perhaps just as important, in determining where other major Book of Mormon cities or territories could have been located and could not have been located.
