“Other Sheep Which Are Not of This Fold”

Brant Gardner

Jesus adds that others besides the Nephites had been separated from Israel and that Israel does not know about them either. He gives no further details, putting the Nephites in the same position regarding “other sheep” as his Old World listeners.

No doubt the twelve felt some comfort in knowing that they were not alone in awaiting a long-delayed reunification with Israel and, furthermore, that the continued separation was not due to their own failings.
