“Even That I Did Not Number Them”

W. Cleon Skousen

Now Nephi sees a complete shift of scenery. His vision suddenly moves to America with millions of people populating the land. The Lord had a lot of confidence in young Nephi to unload on his shoulders this next vision of the future and expect him to comprehend it.

What Nephi had just seen in vision extended over nearly 600 years of early American history. Then he saw what would happen at the time Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem.
