“Within the Walls of the Temple”

The phrase “within the walls of the temple” (Mosiah 2:7) apparently meant something different to the Nephites than it does to the Latter-day Saints. To the Hebrews (and the Nephites) the word temple not only represented a building but also included the surrounding courtyard, which today we would term a temple square or temple grounds. [Alan C.
