Ishmael²

The single reference to this man named Ishmael was given by Amulek, missionary companion to Alma, beginning with their ministry in the city of Ammonihah around 82 BC. Amulek described his heritage to his listeners. “I am Amulek; I am the son of Giddonah, who was the son of Ishmael, who was a descendant of Aminadi; and it was the same Aminadi who interpreted the writing which was upon the wall of the temple, which was written by the finger of God”.
