“He Expounded Unto Them All the Records and Scriptures from the Time That Lehi Left Jerusalem Down to the Present Time”

W. Cleon Skousen

It is amazing that Ammon dared to share with Lamoni so much gospel meat. Much of what he was telling the king was far beyond the milk stage -- or the simple gospel story -- but Ammon knew the Spirit was working on the mind of the king, and so he let the Spirit guide him as to what Lamoni could be taught.
