“That Awful Fear of Death Which Fills the Breasts of All the Wicked”

Bryan Richards

Perfect love casteth out all fear (Moroni 8:16). But the Nephites had cast out perfect love, and awful fear was all that was left.

Hugh Nibley

“..in the last scene the Nephites are allowed the melancholy and terrifying privilege of enjoying one last tremendous spectacle—the full-dress approach of their executioners.” (Since Cumorah, p. 333)
