“The Son of the Everlasting God”

Alan C. Miner

According to McConkie and Millet, the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon reads as follows: "And I looked and beheld the Lamb of God, that he was taken by the people, yea, the everlasting God was judged of the world." Again (like in 1 Nephi 11:18), this change was the case of editorial insertion by Joseph Smith. [Joseph Fielding McConkie and Robert L. Millet, Doctrinal Commentary on the Book of Mormon, Vol. 1, p. 83] [See the commentary on 1 Nephi 11:18]
