“None Other People That Understand”

Brant Gardner

Even though Nephi has given his primary qualification for understanding Isaiah as the spirit of prophecy, nevertheless he also proclaims that his origin in Jerusalem as an educated Old World Jew also gives him an appreciation for, and understanding of, the prophecies of Isaiah. He reiterates the necessity of education in the manner of prophesying in order for anyone to understand Isaiah. Certainly there are many who have stopped at Isaiah in their reading of the Book of Mormon who will attest to the continuing accuracy of Nephi's statement.
