“The More Part of the People Remaining in Their Pride and Wickedness”

W. Cleon Skousen

So the years began to slip away and there was no improvement among the Nephites. In fact, they seemed to become more gross and hardened in their attitude toward anything which was wise, decent or righteous.

But by 2 B.C. some marvelous things began occurring among the members of the Church. This, of course would include Nephi and his associates. However, we will learn in the next book that Nephi's mission is almost over and that his ministry will be turned over to his son who was also named Nephi.
