During 1988, 1989, and 1990, Hugh Nibley taught Honors Book of Mormon classes for four semesters at Brigham Young University. The lectures were video-taped and audio cassettes and printed transcripts were made of the lectures. We believe these recordings will be interesting to listen to and valuable to your Come, Follow Me study program this year. Each week, we will include the lectures covering the Book of Mormon chapters being studied that week.
This week, we have lectures 12, 13 and 14, covering 1 Nephi 11-15.
All 112 lectures are immediately available in PDF, audio, video, and electronic formats, as well as in paperback books that are available for purchase. Links for all of the available online sources can be found in the Complete Bibliography for Hugh Nibley at https://interpreterfoundation.org/bibliographies/hugh-w-nibley/lectures/.
Lecture 12: Book of Mormon—1 Nephi 8—11, The Tree of Life. [repeat from last week]
A discussion about the Tree of Life.
Lecture 13: Book of Mormon—1 Nephi 12—14, Nephi’s Vision
We were noting that chapter ten of 1 Nephi deals with the Jaws. Chapter eleven does something else. Chapter twelve deals with the New World version: Israel in the New World, the Book of Mormon people. Chapter thirteen deals with the Gentiles and the whole world; it takes the world view.
Lecture 14: Book of Mormon—1 Nephi 15—16
Also called “The Liahona and Murmurings in the Wilderness.”
We start out with the last place to look if we want to find information. It starts out, “I returned to the tent of my father.”
