“The Command of All the Armies of the Nephites”

Brant Gardner

As commander of the armies of the Nephites, Moroni has full command over the military battles. In this occasion, we do not find any of the leaders of the community, the chief judge, for instance, in charge of the army. Apparently, among the Nephites the days of Alma as chief judge fighting in personal combat are behind them.
