“It is a Record Like the Plates of Brass Save There Are Not So Many”

Bryan Richards

Earlier in this commentary, we have discussed that the brass plates of Laban contained many prophecies not contained in the Old Testament. Here Nephi tells directly compares the size of the brass plates record to our Old Testament record and he states that the brass plates were larger. This means there must have been a lot of records contained in that work that we do not have now, probably much more than the three additional prophets that Nephi mentions: Zenos, Zenock, and Neum (1 Nephi 19:10).
