“And Nephi Who Was the Father of Nephi”

W. Cleon Skousen

Apparently Nephi made a point of the fact that after nine years his father had never been seen again. It was exactly the way it had been with Alma around 73 B.C. He turned over the sacred Nephi library and artifacts to Helaman and then walked out of Zarahemla toward Melek and was never heard of again.1 Both Alma and Nephi's father were thought to have been translated just as had happened to Moses.
