“He Did Teach Them All Things Concerning Things Pertaining to Righteousness”

Brant Gardner

Textual: This has been Ammon’s story, and Mormon must end it before beginning the essential story from Aaron. This quick narrative serves to sew up the basic facts quickly. In the 1830 text, however, this is not a chapter break. This chapter is about the missionary efforts, no just one man’s efforts. While we find it logical to break these stories into chapters for the individual protagonists, Mormon lumped them all together.
