“The Forty and Eighth Year”

Brant Gardner

The reality of these times in Nephite lands was one of increasing internal tension. Mormon always uses contention for an internal political instability, and that is what is fomenting at this time, and this internal contention will disrupt the very fabric of Nephite society before the arrival of the Savior.

Chronological: The forty-eighth year of the reign of the judges would be 47 BC in the correlation used in this commentary.
