  1. 1 Nephi 3:19 writes "And behold, it is wisdom in God that we should obtain these records, that we may preserve unto our children the language of our fathers". Were these plates the only available books/scrolls that Lehi and family had to prevent them from losing their ability to preserve their language? Did they take anything with them of their Israelite language (which they presumably knew too) or were they solely knowledgeable about Egyptian? Matteo

    Doctrine and Covenants 7: 5 - 6

    I looked at that section and I see one individual and two groups of people who entered the celestial kingdom without post-death (proxied) ordinances. Verses 5-6 - Alvin - he received no baptism. Verses 7-8 - Those who had died prior to this revelation and who die from this point onwards will be heirs in that kingdom if they had not heard the gospel while alive. "All who have died without a knowledge of this gospel, who would have received it if they had been permitted to tarry". Verse 10 - Children who died before the age of accountability. Matteo

    Conclusions from D&C 132: 16 - 17?

    I believe all saved people with reside with Christ in his kingdom. I do not think our saved family and friends will be separated from each other.

    Doctrine and Covenants 7: 5 - 6

    I looked at Doctrine and Covenants 138 and verse 10 says "For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit". This appears to be the same description given to those who inherit a terrestrial glory in Doctrine and Covenants 76:71-73 - "And again, we saw the terrestrial world, and behold and lo, these are they who are of the terrestrial, whose glory differs from that of the church of the Firstborn who have received the fulness of the Father, even as that of the moon differs from the sun in the firmament. Behold, these are they who died without law; And also they who are the spirits of men kept in prison, whom the Son visited, and preached the gospel unto them, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh". Is there a reference to show proxied work elevates someone into the celestial kingdom? Matteo

    What types or degrees of salvation are available to those on whom the proxied work is performed for in the spirit world and can you provide references? Matteo

    Conclusions from D&C 132: 16 - 17?

    If people who don't inherit the telestial or terrestrial kingdoms are not mentioned in those verses then it appears that the people who are appointed angels in service to the gods are those in the celestial kingdom who did not get exalted.
  8. 1 Nephi 2:23 writes "For behold, in that day that they shall rebel against me, I will curse them even with a sore curse, and they shall have no power over thy seed except they shall rebel against me also". I looked at the footnotes but do not see the first time Laman and Lemuel rebel against Nephi and are cursed or what that curse is. Does anyone know? Matteo

    Conclusions from D&C 132: 16 - 17?

    Are the people who are appointed angels in verses 16-17 members of the telestial and terrestrial kingdoms or are they solely members of the two lower divisions of the celestial? Matteo
  10. I do not understand this commandments part. 1 Nephi 3:16 says "Wherefore, let us be faithful in keeping the commandments of the Lord; therefore let us go down to the land of our father's inheritance, for behold he left gold and silver, and all manner of riches. And all this he hath done because of the commandments of the Lord". Which commandments of the Lord pertain to Lehi and which pertain to Nephi in the above verse? 1 Nephi 4:17 says "And again, I knew that the Lord had delivered Laban into my hands for this cause— that I might obtain the records according to his commandments"? Which commandments were given to Nephi about the records? Matteo

    That pamphlet defines the Telestial kingdom as "Those who continue in their sins and do not repent will receive a place in the telestial kingdom". I will include the Terrestrials too as it may be relevant in the context of 132:16-17. "People who refuse to accept the gospel of Jesus Christ but who live honorable lives will receive a place in the terrestrial kingdom". Are these inhabitants "appointed angels in heaven, to minister for those who are worthy of a far more weight of glory" ? Matteo

    Lehi and the twelve visitors

    So in Lehi's vision the number twelve is not literal but rather represents many more?
  13. After the inhabitants were all taken up, was the city destroyed or was it also taken up?
  14. I bought a copy of the Book of Mormon a few weeks ago and started reading it. What does 1 Nephi 1:2 mean? "Yea, I make a record in the language of my father, which consists of the learning of the Jews and the language of the Egyptians" Does this mean the Jewish institutes of learning were all taught in the Egyptian language? 1 Nephi 1:10-11 mentions twelve heavenly beings coming and giving him a book. The footnote for "twelve" identifies them as Apostles. What are the names of these 12 Apostles? Matteo

    I read verse 16 - "Therefore, when they are out of the world they neither marry nor are given in marriage; but are appointed angels in heaven, which angels are ministering servants, to minister for those who are worthy of a far more, and an exceeding, and an eternal weight of glory". Will the telestials be saved and be appointed as angels in heaven even though they continued in their sins and did not repent? The Plan of Salvation defines this group as such. Matteo
