“I Have Other Sheep Which Are Not of This Land Neither of the Land of Jerusalem”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

In one of his concluding testimonies in the Book of Mormon, Mormon said: “I write unto all the ends of the earth; yea, unto you, twelve tribes of Israel” (Mormon 3:18). If words mean what they say and Mormon knew whereof he spoke, the twelve tribes of Israel were then scattered from one end of the earth to the other and but waiting for the message of the Book of Mormon that they might be gathered. When the ten tribes return, among the sacred treasures that they will have with them will be the Book of Mormon (see 2 Nephi 29:13). Because he wrote so eloquently on this subject, we here quote extensively from Elder Bruce R. McConkie:
