“The Nations and Kingdoms of the Gentiles”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
For the Nephites, “Jews” are nationals, persons from the kingdom of Judah. (see 2 Nephi 30:4; 2 Nephi 33:8) “Gentiles” are persons from elsewhere. In this sense, the Latter-day Saints are called Gentiles (see D&C 109:60). In this vision the “nations and kingdoms of the Gentiles” are the European nations.
