“Nehor Was Taken by the People of the Church”

George Reynolds, Janne M. Sjodahl

Nehor was taken before the Chief Judge, Alma, by some Church members, and was tried for his willful and unprovoked crime. He made, himself being his own advocate, a bold defense of his action, and, without any doubts, pleaded that he had been purposely aggravated by Gideon.
