“The Lost Tribes of Israel Shall Have the Words of the Nephites and the Jews”

Brant Gardner

Yahweh promises that his words will become available to all of his children after the nations have “run together” (2 Ne. 28:8). The first part of the prophecy has been fulfilled, even if it is not yet clear how the last prophecy—that the lost tribes will have the records from both continents—will be fulfilled. However, if the lost tribes of Israel are mixed throughout the world’s population, the Church’s proselytizing mission provides that opportunity.
