The Daughter of Jared Thought to Devise a Plan Whereby She Could Redeem the Kingdom Unto Her Father

Bryan Richards

While the brother of Jared goes down in Book of Mormon history as a prophet of unparalleled faith, the daughter of Jared (though a different Jared) must be forever remembered for her wicked and devious plan. This story is one of the best examples of how secret combinations work. But Moroni is careful not to tell too much. And now I, Moroni, do not write the manner of their oaths and combinations (Ether 8:20) because he does not want us to use the Book of Mormon for evil purposes as the daughter of Jared had done with the record which [her] fathers brought across the great deep.
