“Whether He Be the Great Spirit or a Man We Know Not”

W. Cleon Skousen

Just as the servants had suspected the king was very skeptical about their report on Ammon, at least when he first heard it. But after they had all testified of what they had seen and said it looked as though he could not be killed, both the king and his servants began developing theories as to who Ammon was.

As the king contemplated the possibility that Ammon might be the great spirit, Lamoni feared that he had come to punish him for slaying his servants just because they lost a few sheep.
