“Helaman's Sons - Nephi and Lehi”

“Soon two marvelous brothers—great-grandsons of Alma the Younger—introduced an era of tremendous growth in faith prior to Christ’s birth, a period when ‘tens of thousands’ joined the church. Reading as he did of Nephi and Lehi’s success, Mormon editorialized regarding the resolute ’man [or woman] of Christ,’ they who grasp the iron rod and safely walk the way of life, triumphing over Lucifer’s deception and efforts to destroy, claiming in the end the principalities and powers promised to the heirs of the covenant.” (Christ and the New Covenant, p. 128)
