Nephi’s Resignation as Judge
Nephi resigns from his office as judge, and entrusts the position to a man named Cezoram.
Nephi joins his brother Lehi, and the two set out to preach to the word of God to the Nephites.
Nephi and Lehi are inspired and fueled by the words of their late father Helaman, who taught that true happiness and prosperity comes from following and believing Jesus.
Helaman had instructed Nephi and Lehi well.
Nephi and Lehi, keeping the faith, go on a preaching circuit, beginning in Bountiful, and going through Gid, Mulek, and even into the territories within Zarahemla occupied by Lamanites.
Nephi and Lehi’s charismatic and powerful preaching convinces many of their errors, and leads many to repentance.
8,000 Lamanites are baptized, and converted unto the Lord as a result of Nephi and Lehi’s efforts.
