This is the second Scripture Roundtable from The Interpreter Foundation, in which we discuss chapters 3 Nephi 8-11 from The Book of Mormon, bringing in various insights to help us better understand these scriptures. This particular section is quite important, as it is the beginning of the climax of the book, which describes the events leading up to the coming of Christ to the Americas, and his eventual appearance in chapter 11.
Panelists for this roundtable include Andrew Smith, Benjamin McGuire, Brant Gardner, Bryce Haymond, and William Hamblin.
Questions for Next Week: Next week we will discuss 3 Nephi 12-14. We want these discussions to be interactive. Please submit any questions you have that you’d like the Interpreter Scripture Roundtable to address in these chapters. You can simply leave a comment below, or through the contact form. Please submit your questions by Tuesday, October 2nd.
This roundtable is also available as an audio podcast, and will be included in the podcast feed. You can listen by pressing the play button or download the podcast below:
