The People of Zarahemla

Church Educational System
Amaleki recorded information about a second colony of Jews who escaped to the promised land from Jerusalem and became known in the Book of Mormon as the people of Zarahemla. Because Mulek, a son of Zedekiah, King of Judah (see Omni 1:15, Mosiah 25:2, Helaman 6:10), came with them, the group has often been called Mulekites, even though the name is not used in the Book of Mormon. Thus, to the seed of Manasseh through Lehi (see Alma 10:3), and the seed of Ephraim through Ishmael (see Erastus Snow, Journal of Discourses, 23:184–85), was added the seed of Judah.
