“And Ye Shall Come Unto the Knowledge of the Fulness of My Gospel”

Brant Gardner

The Savior’s words here have a double referent. He is speaking directly to the twelve, and therefore to the Nephites as representatives of the Nephite branch of the House of Israel. However, since they are apostles of the Lord, they also represent all of Israel. Thus the promise comes on two levels, first to the Nephites, and secondly to all of the House of Israel.
